Fun with Felt

Hi there!  I have a fun project to share today!  I had fun creating something a little different for me, so I hope you'll enjoy the finished product.  I've been seeing all of these adorable felt plushies everywhere, but I've never created any, so I decided to give it a go.  I used some of my favorite Sack It Dies from Taylored Expressions along with some fabulous TE Felt!!

I decided on using the Sack It - Crab, Sack It - Frog, Sack It - Chick and the Sack It - Lamb.  I thought these would be adorable little characters to start and could be a good range of colors.  With all but the frog, I also used the Stitched Circle Stacklets for the body.  For the crab, I used Flamingo Felt to die cut all of the pieces.

The frog was created using Split Pea and Mustard.  The eyes and mouth were created with Espresso.

For the lamb, I used Marshmallow along with Khaki and Cotton Candy.  The eyes, mouth and feet were created using Espresso.

My last little friend was the chick.  For the chick I used Mustard, Marshmallow and Carrot.  In case you were wondering, I didn't have any black felt, so for the chick and the crab's eyes and the crab's mouth, I used Marshmallow and then colored the pieces with a black Sharpie!  LOL  The things we crafters do in a pinch!  :)

All of these were stuffed with pieces of a plastic grocery bag and hot glued together.  The grocery bag makes a little crinkle sound when you squeeze them!  These were SO much fun to make and I will definitely make some more to add to the collection!  My kids have already made their claims on these!  LOL  I hope you've been inspired to get out your felt and create something!  Thanks for stopping by today and have a great day!
