Makes you want to live in felt, huh?
I made this felt house for my first craft swap(Small Mystery Swap) for Mamarose22. The house was almost a carbon copy of the original one in my partner's wist and was definitely an experience. It took a about 9 hours, but those 9 hours were quite relaxing.
And here is a chair pin cushion. This chair was a little tricky and not in the way you would imagine. The tricky part was I needed a miniature afghan to go on it, but I didn't know how to make one. So, I taught myself how to crochet and used crochet thread and a tiny hook to make a tiny granny square. But it wasn't that bad of a choice to learn, because I quickly realized crocheting to be my passion and main craft.
My swap partner had these on her wists and I decided they would be fun to make. Basically a wist is an online visual wishlist. The source of the links and images can come from anywhere on the internet. It is really easy to use and is especially useful for people who participate in craft swaps.
*Sorry about the horrible pics. I took them with a bad camera a couple of years ago
Hope you enjoyed!
