TIPsy Tuesday - Making Felt Embellishments




Felt shapes are very popular in scrapbooking embellishments.   You can do your own with your die cutter or punches and a needle and thread.

Here is how I did the little mitten:

I cut the mitten with the Cricut (using SCAL software but you could cut any image using a cartridge)



Then I took the negative space and used that as a pattern to draw my mitten on felt.  I flipped the pattern and the felt over drawing and cutting from the back side.





I cut it out with scissors and whip stitched around the edges.



It's easy to cut out your own felt shapes just use your die cutter to make a pattern for you.  I found the negative image to make the best pattern.  It is easier to trace inside an image rather than around the edge.

  2. Great wintery card! I love the papers and layout, and the way you've used your stamps on this. The little felt mitten is absolutely perfect, and thank you for the great tips on making embellishments. I never would have thought to use some of the cricut cuts as templates, but it makes perfect sense :)
