yep, its here again…sheesh twice in a row makes it almost an institution on this attention deficit driven blog.
Lets start by sharing last weeks winner with you , it is Tas of Little Boozle. (applause)
I get a lot of questions about felt, about where I buy it and what I prefer. I usually say to people that for something that is going to get a lot of love, you need to get the best felt you can afford. Because making is my jobhobby now, I am lucky to have a “craft account” and when the numbers look good, it is off to Winterwood for me.
You know I used to poo poo felt in crafts…I did. I have a childhood hangover from those nasty acrylic felt squares that we used in school.They were always green and brown and orange, and the scissors kind of made it squeak when you cut it.
You won’t find anything like that at Winterwood. It is hard to describe just how lovely (and forgiving )their felt is to sew with. So instead of raving on , I decided to have a look at my stash and share some felt.
Pop on over to Winterwood and have a look around, Sandra has a huge range of stuff (apart from felt) and stocks the awesome fabric that I make little hedgehogs from as well.
Let me know your felt experiences..Do you love it or hate it? Do you like to sew with it? Does the nasty stuff set your teeth on edge? Am I a felt snob?
A commenter at random will get a little kit to make up a Hedgehog of their very own. Everything will be included, a creative card and all the doings.
(Once again, no deals, no cash-for-comment, just sharing it’s Tuesday Rotate after all)
