Made in Felt... issue 2!


Remember Made in Felt magazine?

Well, it wasn't exactly a magazine, more like one of those thick, occasionally-published "bookazines" you see popping up all over the place these days.

It was jam packed with felt-themed crafty goodness... and now a second issue has been published! Yay!


I was delighted to discover that this issue includes two projects from my book, Super-Cute Felt Animals. I know it sounds a bit weird when I say things like that but honestly I rarely know about these features until someone spots them and mentions them to me!


You can sew a friendly hedgehog or a pretty budgie / parakeet, with step by step tutorials for both. I stitched myself a brooch version of the budgie and I wear it a lot, pinned to my jacket or cardigan.

 

Obviously if you're my mum (hello mother!) you might rush out and buy this just because my work is featured in it, but for those of you not related to me there's lots to love about this magazine!


It's 130 pages long and full of felt-themed tutorials, crafty ideas and sewing tips. I especially love this monster...

 

... this cuckoo clock (from Makery, a lovely crafty book which I reviewed earlier this year)...

 

... and this fun teapot.

 

There are also some felt-themed shopping guides and some interviews with some talented designer/makers who work with felt, like Louise Evans (of Felt Mistress fame) (how awesome are those felt beetles???)...


... and the always inspiring Gretel Parker, who creates the most wonderful needlefelted sculptures.  


I picked up a copy of Made in Felt in my local WHSMITH but if you can't find a copy near you, it's available to order online.
