With the new year here, I’ve got a suggestion for you. Actually first I have a statement: you aren’t using felt enough in your crafts. Now here’s the suggestion . . . you need to start using it more.
Because felt is a very cool craft supply! And I feel it’s very underappreciated. I think most people think of felt as something for kids’ crafts only, and don’t have an idea of what to make.
Why do I say that? That used to be me.
But what happened when I started using it is that I never stopped. Once I did a project with felt, I really got a feel for it, and the rest is history. Now I keep a large stack of felt in my craft stash in a rainbow of colors.
Felt is a perfect supply for beginners, so there isn’t much you need to know. My most important tip is simply to use sharp scissors to cut it. Besides that, you’ve got this.
