Made in Felt Magazine

Attention felt fans! Have you seen Made in Felt?

This felt-themed magazine (sister mag to Made in Paper) came out this week...

... and it includes a project designed by me! Yay!

Long-time followers of my blog might remember that I used to sell large felt flower brooches that looked like this:

Well, know you can learn how to sew your own :)

You can make the corsages with a button in the centre...

... or with lots of sparkly seed beads:

When I made these for sale I used eco felt (made from recycled plastic bottles) and used vintage buttons for the centres, but you can use any felt or buttons you fancy. I also made smaller flowers (with fewer petals) and used them to decorate hair combs:

They're a lot of fun to make!

The magazine includes 33 different felt projects - some of these are specially designed for the magazine, and others are selected from craft books (like Stash Happy Felt, Zombie Felties and So Pretty! Felt) and magazines like Mollie Makes, so you might spot some projects you recognise but over 30 projects for £7.99 is great value, I think, even if you've already got a few of the projects. And it's a great way to sample projects from different craft books.

It also includes tips on sewing with felt, interviews with some felt-loving designers and some felt-themed shopping guides - I was delighted to see my teapot rosette brooches got a mention here:

Made in Felt is available now from WHSmiths and other newsagents in the UK. If you live outside the UK or can't find the magazine in a store near you you can buy it online here.

UPDATE: My large felt flower design is now available as a sewing pattern! Visit my shop to see all my printable PDF patterns:

Magazine looks fab! There is no chance that it will be stocked anywhere around these parts so I have ordered a copy to be delivered :-)
