felt dollie

We made these sweet little felt people the other night. They are completely hand sewn, clothes doll and all. It went pretty fast actually. I love sewing by hand and especially with felt or wool. I think there will be more of these made in the future. They are a little addicting. Thanks Kate for the pattern.

"Collage Couture"

Today I went to a great collage class. I have been admiring Julie Nutting's artwork for several years in the Stampington magazines. Earlier this year she came out with her own book titled "Collage Couture". The book has lots of great ideas, but I am the type that needs to take a class and "make" the item - then I can take off with it. So here is what I made in class today. I LOVE it! It was so fun. I am a blog and youtube addict and should have a degree with all the art I have looked into and watched. I admire all the collaging and painting - but just could not do it myself - that is - until today! It was so much easier than it looks and I can't wait to try some more. It is hard to get a good photo of this without glare, because there are several coats of Mod Podge Hard Coat on it. It sure dries wonderfully and not smelly or sticky like the regular Mod Podge - it has the purple lable if you are ever looking for it.
