I love felt...and when I was first really getting into the fun stuff you can make with it, I came across Melissa's blog, Checkout Girl. I cannot believe the adorable stuff that she makes with felt! Her embroidery with felt is almost too cute. For Christmas one year I tried to make something sorta similar, and was wishing I had just purchased one of her creations. They are way better.
For instance...you know I love chickens. So how awesome is this?
Teehee!!! Check out the evolution of this little chicken creation here.
The applique that I tried was from this tutorial (which was featured on Sew Mama Sew) called, Little Pink House. Mine was ok, but hers is so cute.
And I just found this one....
Check out her blog and her etsy shop. Right now. And tell me that you can even come close to her embroidery and applique. The details that she gets into on faces and people, out of this world!
Melissa, thanks for sharing your talents and your process with us. So fun to see!
