Felted Soap

I made more felted soap bars! I covered some of the ugly soap we made awhile ago that works just fine, but is a definite eyesore. These two bars look better!

Watercolor Cockroach

I used some watercolor pencils to make a Madagascar hissing cockroach. I drew then painted then drew a bit more. It looks kinda cute.

Geometric String Art WIP

I've started a string art piece! I'm using four colors of thread and doing a fun geometric star shape. Here is what it looks like so far.

Duvet Cover WIP

I was hoping to be finished with my duvet cover, but my top stitching isn't showing up! It is totally functional, my thick winter feather bed is inside now, but my decorative yellow top stitching is barely visible, mostly where there is still some tape left. I plan on using some embroidery thread (or maybe yarn) so it really pops. The other side will have some simple quilt ties.

Needle Felted Creatures

For Christmas I got the Crafternoon gals little needle felting kits. We finally got around to making them a few weeks ago and this is what they look like.

Needle Felted Creatures

I made a hamster with bulging eyes, Katie made a flat penguin and also a snowman with the extra felt, and Chelsea made a black cat. As you can see, we could use some practice, but the instructions were not that good. I don't know what I expected from a dollar store needle felting kit.
