Caution! Cute Attack!
A quick post to share with you a couple of really fun books. "The Cute Book" and "The Cuter Book" are full of tiny, easy, delightful felt cuties :-) I made three in a snap; each one probably took two hours from cutting out to finishing. These would be great projects for children, all the sewing is done by hand. The kitty on the left I turned into a pin to wear (just sewed a safety pin to the back). Teddy and Bunny are toys for the Pocket Pixies.
You can see Finch snuggled up in bed with Bunny and Bear ( and a sleepy kitty!).
I own "The Cute Book," and borrowed "The Cuter Book" from the library. If I were buying just one, I'd pick "The Cuter Book," because, well, it was just cuter :-)
A peak into the Cardboard Cottage. Little by little more things are being added to improve the cozy-ness for its occupants.
A pretty portrait on the wall, and a wool rug for the floor. I used simple applique shapes from the book "101 Appliqué Blocks" for the rug.
Well, not such a short post after all. More felt goodness to follow!
