Felt Shapes

In my search for the perfect advent calendar on Pinterest and Etsy, I came across a lot of felt stuff. Evidently, it's easy to work with and you can do a lot with it. Who knew?

After getting some advice from Wendy, I got to work on my first felt project. I decided to start with the basics. Nothing fancy. Just some shapes to get used to working with the material and making my stitches semi-pretty.

I'm pleased with the results - an orange and green circle, a blue and yellow square and a red and purple triangle. Billy calls them mini pillows. BB just throws them on the floor.

Next up is another set of shapes - a star, a heart and the moon, I think - this time, with a straight stitch. Then, I'm going to try some layering.

I'm not sure if I'm going to make my advent calendar out of felt yet or not, but it's definitely fun and easy to work with.
