Quick and easy felt projects

Quick and easy felt projects can be very fast and give great results. I really love working with felt because it can be sewn or glued and looks great either way. Felt can be cut with scissors or a rotary blade. Another great thing about felt is it can be all natural and made from animal fur called wool felt or it can be made using recycled materials.Fast felt friends easy felt projects.JPG
I went a little crazy this time and made three super cute paper organizers.  Or maybe they are just felt clips?  I’m not quite sure what to call them other than adorble.  They each have a clothes pin on the back. This is Tommy Taco. He is a pretty cheesy guy.add stickles to felt taco.JPG

This yummy little slice of watermelon does not have a name. I could not quite figure out how to give it a face.Watermelon slice.JPG

And the there is Cali Cactus.  She is a little shy and very adorable but shy none the less.
