I've been threatening to make a felt garland for a holiday for a while now... originally inspired by the multi-talented Molly from Purl Bee (that girl can do some serious things with felt I tell you), I had almost forgotten about my itch to make a garland o'felt until I saw this at Cluck Cluck Sew and there it was... I had to make a felt garland for our little Thanksgiving. So I grabbed a water bottle top, a Lipton Pure Leaf Iced Tea (love) top and a Vitamin water top (more love) and cut around them... with my Gingher dressmaker's sheers. The pain by the end of that cutting is kind of indescribable... anyone go that route before? It was oh, so very bad. And Rob refused to massage my thumb and pinky for some reason, which clearly made it worse.
Anyway, a few stolen moments throughout the tough work week (who would have imagined that group research projects on Shakespeare would encite such drama in a pack of ninth grade girls... hmm... there's irony there, I know) and it has been sewn together. It's kind of lovely.
... my fingers ache just looking at that last one. Felt was picked up at JoAnn's and I love that oatmeal colored one best. Big unveiling will be at Thanksgiving. Hope you are enjoying all of your preparations. Happy Monday friends!
