My Ode To Felt....

Or, what I didn't show you at Christmas......  
When it seemed as if everyone here, here, here,  here , here and here, but me was making lovely felt things..... I actually was. Trying. I came up with an idea for a garland. I wanted to add some other things but life kept happening. There are spaces to add them next year. Or the year after. 
Anyway, behold, my felt tree garland. It's pretty long. I think I made about forty trees. It was simple but a bit time consuming. I used a nice wool blend felt bought at Joann. There are four pieces for each tree. Sew two together down the middle. Finger press those open and sew two two-piece units together down the middle. 
Done. 
Mostly.

Those are really sweet. I keep thinking I should make a garland of some sort for my mantle piece but I never get around to it.

super cute! I would love to see a larger photo of the whole thing. These are sort of like those paper ones that fan out! How big are they?

How cute! Great idea.

Everyone seems to be getting in on the "felt" train. And as cute as all the things are... I just can't seem to get "into" it. Hmmm. Oh well, I like seeing what ya'll have come up with!
