I have found a new love! Felt/felted ornaments!
These cute ornaments were bought and were very inexpensive but oh so cute, die cute felt
Cute little stocking out of felt with poinsettia decorations (ignore the cat hair, Charlie likes this ornament apparently) found at Cracker Barrel for 50 cents~
This cute mushroom ornament is felted and I found it at a Craft Show last weekend...love it!
Charlie made out of felt from my friend Susan
She also made these cute cats last year
The cats are made from felt but the scarves are felted....ah, so what is the difference?
Felt fabric can be bought at stores. It is manufactured from several fibers
wool, wool/rayon and acrylic
They have different feels and weights so depending on the project you would choose accordingly
Felted is taking wool sweaters and shrinking it down to a nice 'felted' fabric
Before you get all excited and thing wow that Linda really knows her stuff....I have to tell you I bought a book to help me with this
Now I am not really crafty but in researching different publications on felt/felted fabric this one received high marks. EASY (oh that's for me) and since I could get it with Amazon gift cards from Swag points...I did!!
Look at these projects!
Cute little birds to hang on your tree
The sweetest little pin cushions!
I love these trees
But I think the felted scrap wreath is my favorite
I saw one at the craft show in grey, white and cranberry and I want to make one!
So watch out for me looking for wool sweaters to felt and trying to make some ornaments...It will probably be next year (just being real here) but still I think I can and will do this!

Oh and in case you were wondering...the author of Fa la la la Felt wouldn't know me if I walked up to her face to face and is not compensating me in any way for this blog post!
