This image was created out of sheet felt for the video I created for A Stranger Dream. The video has since been played at various events such as International Women’s Day and Pride.

Mine Craft Birthday Banner

Felted creeper and endoman

My eldest loves the computer game MineCraft so for her birthday I set about making a MinceCraft Banner using felt – both sheets of felt from which I cut her name – it was a pack of animal skin patterned sheet felt. And needle felt – this is a dry felt technique where you stab the felt fibre to tangle them all up together. I used a brush to sit the fibres on to stab them and got a tool that contains more than one needle so that the process goes quicker.

The creatures are a creeper and the head of an Enderman and they were created free form so there is no pattern I am afraid.

We then sewed them onto a medium width piece of green ribbon, folding the ribbon back on itself at the ends and sewing hanging loops into the banner.

Red Monster Felt Cuddly

Muse Monster in Felt

I made this for my friends little girl – it is Red Monster who is one of my story telling monsters :)

I cut the shapes out of felt – two red rectangles, a small black rectangle, two sections of jagged triangle cut white, two white ovals and two dark grey buttons for the eyes. I then sewed it all together with embroidery silk and stuffed it with hypo-allergenic stuffing.
