Another Magazine Kit

Karen introduced me to the new magazine, Mollie Makes, after over enthusiastically buying the first issue.  I helped her out by taking one of the extra copies.  Each copy comes with a cover kit, and I didn't want it to go to waste, so here's the first one made up.


There was a glitch with this one, the white felt had been left out of the the package, so I had to wait until my kind son bought me some home last week.  Having all I needed, it was a pleasant hour, hand sewing every thing into place.

I used running stitch around all the pieces and blanket stitch for the outer edge.  All I need now is an ipod to go inside!

This project reminded me how much fun it was to use felt, no fraying edges, and relaxing hand stitching to get a very pleasant end result.  I'll have to see what other felt projects I can find to do.

I saw a write up about that magazine on another blog a few days ago. It looks great - full of fun stuff to make. Knowing our shops here in Oz, I doubt if we'll see it on our shelves any time soon...
I love your two recent finishes - very cute! Yes, felt is terrific to work with isnt' it. I have only used it for embellishing so far, but one day I might get around to being a bit more creative with it.

Cough cough - where is your Churn Dash sample block? ;-)

So cute! I haven't worked with felt in a while but you know my Christmas decorations could use some sprucing up. Felt is probably just the ticket!

Well this is so cute! The magazine is worth it just for this.
