I’m a little in love with felt right now. It’s the perfect mix of craft project and sewing. It acts like paper and fabric at the same time.

The new room still needed more color, so here’s the 2nd in the turquoise felt pillow series:

I started by finding a simple line drawing of an origami crane then cutting out the individual shapes and piecing them back together using fusible interfacing.

As I got ready to stitch in the outlines I realized I could’ve just started with the full shape and just used the outline to show the shapes – but at least the puzzle was fun to put together.

While I am enjoying adding pops of color to the soon to be craft room, the next project needs to use the beautiful poppy fabric I have from Jill Bliss.
