Opus Gluei Challenge # 48 - Get all Felt Up

Everyone loves getting felt, don't they.
A hug brings comfort,
a pat on the back brings affirmation of a job well done,
... wait a second, that's not the felt Opus Gluei wants.
They want projects made of felt.

So, I decided to make a felt needle case.
(or four!)

I cut the butterflies with a die using my Sizzix.

This one is my favorite.
Sewed the ribbon with a zig-zag stitch.

This is a bit smaller than the others.
That's why there is only one butterfly.

I like the way the stitching on the butterflies look like their bodies.

Here are the inside pages. I only stamped this one.
Nope, I couldn't find a needle to model. Figures, doesn't it.

I love the brown, orange, blue color combo.
I stamped the smaller butterflies with brown Staz-On Ink using a Damask stamp.
Now for the good part, I am giving two of these away.
Not my favorite, sorry, I have to keep that one.
But, join Opus Gluei this week, post your entry there and you are entered once.
Come back here, let me know you entered the challenge this week and you are entered twice.
Oh, and if you are a follower on this blog, I'll give you another 2 entries.
I'll drawn two names next Sunday.

Good Luck.
NOW go get all FELT UP.

Love these, I originally thought it was printed felt but it's even cooler that you stamped it (did I mention I loved how you stamped inside too for ease in sorting - 'cause I do)

Great project and very do-able, I like that!
