Felt, Floss + Frosty

November 18, 2012 Julie

Felt in the Home Made shop!

Some delicious new colors of felt arrived in the Home Made shop, just in time for some holiday craftin’!

A quality blend of wool and rayon, our felt is available in over 24 colors AND is an affordable alternative to the [lackluster] stuff you’ll find in that craft superstore. You heard me. I’m smack-talkin’ about felt!

You can purchase our felt in 12″ x 18″ sheets (individually or in bundles of 6) or in 9″ x 12″ bundles of 6. And, we’ve got white felt available in 36″ wide cuts by the quarter yard. Holiday stockings or a tree skirt, anyone???

Give it a whirl. Your fingers will jump with joy working with such yummy felt and you’ll have proudly supported a small, independent shop like mine. (: Who has plans to do all (or most) of your holiday shopping locally?

Now, since you’re already scoping out the felt, it behooves me to tell you that I also got in some new. . . embroidery floss!  That Sublime Floss is so Boss.

Sublime Floss in Fruit Salad + Flowerbox

We have 8 color palettes of Sublime Stitching‘s six strand, 100% cotton embroidery floss that’ll surely inspire you to break out some backstitching, maybe some satin stitching, stuff like that. Maybe some cross stitching, I don’t know. I don’t know if you’ll have enough time. . .

But, hopefully have enough time to make these ornaments!

Felt Snowman Ornaments

Awesome felt + awesome embroidery floss = an awesome time making felt ornaments!

I used this terrific (and free) pattern for making mine, which are perfect for topping presents or hanging on the tree. Who’s gonna embellish them to resemble your family members and make a little Snowman/Snow-woman family portrait?

You could also make these ornaments, this garland, or check out some sweet projects in this book or this one! I’m about to sign off and get started on that garland, myself. . .
