felt and thread.

I've been trying to practice my embroidery skills. It's hard and very time consuming! My impatience has led me to incorporate felt into my work instead of filling certain areas (like hair) in with thread. :)



The mushroom baby took longer because I wanted to try to fill it in all with thread.



By the way, I am currently in love with Hagen Dazs ice cream bars! YUM!!! Plus, I'll probably be back this week because I have a couple of TAGS to do! :)

You are really good! Personally, I like the felt-incorporated embroidery. I think it gives it more texture and character. I'm just a sucker for a good applique! ☺

Those are adorable! Good job! I think it was smart to use the felt.

The multi-texture embroidery is very nice! I bought all the tools for felting, but haven't tried it yet, must do that!

I really like how you added the felting for the hair. It gives the piece more depth. You would never know you did it out of impatience. :)

I admire you for doing embroidered filling on the mushroom baby. Wow! And good call with the felt for the girl's hair — it's what I would've done too. ;)

Mmm...those ice cream bars are so delicious. The best is the plain vanilla with milk chocolate coating. Yum!

They look beautiful... I wanna try too! My favorite is the little mushroom guy (the one that took you the longest) hee hee!

From the moment the first Mercedes-Benz CLS four-door "coupe" was introduced to the public, other German luxury automakers hit the drafting board. According to the German auto experts at AutoBild, Audi is just over a year away from unleashing its own cleverly packaged sedan.
