My Love Affair with Felt

It started with Counting Fish that I first saw on the blog Counting Coconuts. My neighbor and I churned them out in about two nap times. They have buttons on the front and the corresponding numerical value stitched into the back. They also have washers in thier noses so the boys can use a magnetic fishing rod to catch them! Then, with the leftovers, we made some sea creature magnets for the refrigerator (jelly fish, sea horse, starfish, Nemo, angelfish and other tropical fish) and they turned out great! Felt is super easy to work with, even with beginner skills like mine. Here's a sneak peak at my newest project. I'm almost done with the cutting process and just need to work on the time consuming sewing/embellishing process. Can't wait to show you how it turns out!!

Love them! I need to get to the craft store and buy some more felt. I only have Christmas colors! Then I need to whip up some of these projects!

Love your magnets! I created some from a template I found on The Purl Bee and linked to your post in a round up of similar ideas!

Your alphabet book is pretty cute too! I have been thinking about how to put my ideas for an alphabet book together as well!
