Themed batts.

Working on themed batts this week.  

For the past few years I have been doing batts with a theme.  The first was different wildflowers of North Dakota and then we had beautiful bird batts.  Right now I am doing hummingbird batts after the little beauties found around North America. 

I have the littles thinking of other ideas to use for some future themed batts as well.  They are super creative littles so they will come up with some great ideas I am sure.

I will try and see if I can't get some pictures added to this post later this week.

Felting ideas.

The littles and I have been playing around with the idea of making felt covered journals.  I wonder how many out there still journal.  We do here, but beings things have gone to computer I wonder.  

Working on felted flowers as well for hair adornments beings it is fun to go a little wild.  LOL

I decided to include some pictures of some of the pieces of felt we have finished.  I used my Autumns Breeze Falkland top to create each of these.  You can get cool effects depending on how you lay the fibers for felting.

This piece of felt will grow up to be a small felted purse for my eldest daughter.

This one looks like it wants to become a cover for a journal.

This one as well wants to become a journal cover.
