Felt butterfly wall hanging

To make the butterfly in this demo the maker used felt from a large wall hanging that was cut up into strips.

That’s the great thing about felt – over the years you build up a stash of leftover bits and bobs and the odd ‘failed’ projects that you can use again.  It’s disappointing when a project goes wrong but great when it means you get to add some pretty handmade felt to your stash.

 

This is from the RosiePink blog I liked it so much I wanted to share it.

This is the felt from the discarded wallhanging:

 

 

To finish the butterfly piece they sewed  calico on to the back for stability and a little hanging loop.

 

A lovely gift or ideal to keep for the wall of a craft room!

Handmade cards are always appreciated and can be made to suit your recipients interests. 

Quick Tip: To machine embroider on a small piece of felt, pin it onto a piece of thin paper, so that you have something to hold onto, and embroider through the felt and paper together. When you’ve finished, trim the paper so that it doesn’t show beyond the edges of the felt, and you’ll have a good surface for the double-sided sticky tape, making it easy to attach the felt to the card.
