For some reason my pictures aren't showing up for my guest post over at Crystals Craft Blog. I'm not sure if that is something that I'm only experiencing or everyone is. Anywho I here's my craft below with some fun crafty ideas that can be made with felt.
I'm happy to say that Ashtyn's felt house is almost complete after four long weeks of snipping, sewing and designing. Now that the bulk of it is done I'm left with lots of felt scraps. I got an idea this morning when my daughter was rummaging through my costume jewellery. I dragged out my pinking shears, velcro, ribbon and buttons and put my felt scraps to good use by making felt bracelets.
By looking at the picture its pretty easy to see how I made them but I thought I'd share anyways.
First start by measuring your childs wrist
Then cut a strip of felt that length and use your pinking shears to give the sides that zig zag look.
Sew on your ribbon of choice
Next add whatever you fancy....a button, felt flower, a little pocket to store treasures....
If you're going to be adding buttons just be sure to keep in mind that they are choking hazards. I sewed mine on REALLY well so my daughter has a hard time turning it into a snack.
Once you've decorated your bracelet to your liking then sew two opposite pieces of velcro to the ends. One on the back and one on the front of the bracelet. You could also use snaps if you prefer.
To complete this post I looked for other great projects that can be made with felt. Especially for the girls with lots of left over felt from their felt house along. I love some of these ideas so much that I've put them on my to craft list.
