Playing with felt and a Big Shot
I did something today that I've thought about doing for ages; I used a Sizzix die to cut felt. Although the blurb says you can, I am a little cynical and needed to try it for myself.
Sadly, the photos I took are somewhat out of focus, but the general idea is apparent. A trawl through my button box provided the centres. Some of the finer outlines never made it; the felt was acrylic and quite thin, and fell apart on a couple of occasions.
I have a bag design in my head that I think one or two would look good on and a couple more might make a brooch, too.
The family is all home from their visits away; son has returned from Sweden, daughter from her Nanna's. House is now back to normal - half term is just aboout over and so it's back to business as usual tomorrow.
How long until Easter?
