My Creative Space


What is it about felt food? I so enjoy trying to figure out how to make something from felt: the shape, the colours, the matching emboidery floss. And then there is the puzzle - how to make something look like the real thing, or at least enough so that you will recognize it!

This week I have been finishing up a few felt food items including some cucumber slices, fairy bread (which I started a couple of weeks ago) and lamingtons. I have also been working on some new felt food "designs". Design is a loose word for me, as I have a tendency to just start cutting the felt with nothing more than a notion in my head:) It is fun to see though how it turns out.

This week also marks the first sale from my new madeit shop! I can't tell you how exciting that was - I couldn't sleep I was so excited! Ironically it was two of my felt food pieces. So nice when something you really like also turns out to be something someone else really likes:)

I hope lots of good stuff is happening in your space today - visit here to see more creative spaces. Cyndy Pin It

It is a thrill when something you love making sells isn't it. I also make felt food and am slightly addicted to it. It really is so much fun to make. I love making my little High Tea sets the best -fiddly but so cute!
