A sneak peek at my new addiction

I admit it. I'm a fickle crafter. I tend to jump from one obsession to another, though not before amassing a large number of supplies for each craft. When I was in college, we joked that a friend of mine went through boyfriends faster than paper towels. I have the same tendencies, though with crafts instead of men. (I'm sure my husband appreciates that...)

My latest fling is with felt, sequins, and seed beads. I love the flexibility of the felt, and the ease of sewing it. It's easy to cut into any shape you want, and you don't have to hem the edges. The nubby texture just begs to be touched, and it's a great combo with the smooth sparkle of a sequin or a bead. Yep, I'm in love. This blog entry is starting to sound strangely like a love letter. Creepy.

Anyways.... I've spent the last few days working on some projects with felt. I'll be adding them to my Etsy shop soon. In the meantime, here's a sneak peek of what I've been working on:

Ooooooo. Gorgeous colors. Isn't felt delicious! I can't pick just one medium or project, either. We're not flighty. We're versatile!

I can't wait to see them in your shop! I'm a sucker for things made out of felt. I've found myself in the craft shop with handfuls of it at times, but I put it back and head towards the beads. I have to have my priorities :)
