Make it with Felt!

Hi there ladies! How was your weekend?? Hopefully it was full of fun, relaxation and maybe a crafty project or two! Today I wanted to share an awesome new product we just got in and some inspiring ideas to use it with! XoticFelt is an amazing new line of felts made out of a genius blend of bamboo and rayon! These natural fibers are not only super soft, strong and able to hold the most vivid of colors, they're also a sustainable alternative to synthetics! So if you're trying to make your life a little greener, these felts are a great choice! We have yardage along with easy to use 18" x 20" pre-cut pieces (great for little projects)!

The Cabbage Rose girls whipped up these cute little felt decorations in no time! Since felt doesn't fray all you have to do is cut and stitch! Sew cute!

Sweet Shoppe

The Sweet Shoppe Ornament Set is an adorable pattern that uses felt! I think it would be super cute to use some brighter colors for these ornaments! And you wouldn't even have to wait until Christmas to use them! Try decorating a candy buffet table for a party with these fun creations!

I found a precious FREE tutorial for these Bitty Booties on Heather Bailey's blog! An excellent project for our super-soft felts! If you know someone who's about to have a little one, these shoes would make the sweetest of gifts and are sure to make any mama smile! You can download the template and instructions here! Also, there's a Flickr group specifically for these booties where ladies from all over the globe share pictures of how they customized this pattern, be sure to browse through for some inspiration!
