Kunin Felt Embroidery Hoop Art

Sometimes I like to be a little unconventional!   This time it’s with a Valentine’s Day Card!  I’m participating in a Valentine’s Day DIY Card Swap!   So, for this Card Swap, I made an Embroidery Hoop Art that can be displayed using Kunin Felt!

Hoop2_Final

Materials Needed:
Embroidery Hoop (I used a 4 inch)
Pink and White Felt (Kunin Felt)
Scissors 
Beacon Felt Glue
Tulip Fabric Paint

Felt In Hoop

Directions:  

1.  I placed the felt in the hoop and tightened the screw.

2.  Once the fabric was pulled tight, I trimmed the extra felt.

Glue and Paint

3.  From the white felt, I cut a heart and the letters to spell “LOVE”.  

4.  Using Beacon Felt Glue, I glued them down.

5. Using Tulip Slick Fabric Paint, I added some details.

6.  Let dry and then it’s ready to be put in the mail to a special person!

Here is one that I made for the Designer Section Share The Heart Free Art Project at Creativation in Phoenix, AZ last month.  Pieces of Art with a Heart made by the CHA Designers placed art around the show and people could find it and keep it!  My friend Laura Kelly was the one to find mine!  For this one, I used Laura Kelly’s Lemonade Alphabet and Heart #5 dies from Sizzix.

Kunin Felt Love Banner

Disclosure:   This blog post contains one or more affiliate links.

It’s time for the Valentine’s Day Craft Lightning series!   And since I’m obsessed with banners lately, this was an easy one for me!  It really takes less than 15 minute and even the kids can help out with it.

Banner

Materials needed:
Sizzix Cutting Machine (I use a Big Shot)
Kunin Felt
Dies:

Felt Glue (I use Beacon’s)
Jute Rope
Clothespins (I like the medium sized ones)

Step 1:  Using the Big Shot machine and dies, I cut all of my pieces.  Lori Whitlock’s Banner die is my favorite die ever, especially with the banner craze that I have right now!!!!   I also love Laura Kelly’s Lemonade Alphabet!   The Sizzix Wavy Frame is so versatile!   I cut the frame out in two different felt colors.  

dies

Step 2:   Lay your design out.  At first, I wasn’t going to add the inside of the frame piece, but then I decide to.  I like it!  Once you have it laid out the way you want it, glue it all down.  I glued the frames down first and then added the letters.

Glue Time

Step 3:  Let it dry and then add it to your jute rope using clothes pins.  Then hang it up!  Another option is to cut small cuts into the top of your felt banner and then slide it onto the jute rope.  I like the clothespins, simply for the fact that I like to make banners for different occasions and I can just switch them out!  I love to use Command Strips to hang up my banners.   They are easy to remove and you can put them wherever you want!

clips and rope

I hope you like this adorable LOVE banner made from Kunin Felt.

Easter Egg Place Mat

Easter is right around the corner, as in this upcoming weekend!  Everyone will be sitting down to have an Easter meal with the family!  Why not brighten up the table with an Easter Egg Place Mat!   This one is made with Kunin Felt!
placemat
Materials needed:
Bright colored Felt (Kunin is my brand of choice!  I used Eco-fi Plus for the mat and ClassicFelt for the eggs and grass)
Scissors
Sewing Machine
Thread
felt
First, I cut several pieces of felt that were about 6in x 2in.  Then, I cut little strips to use as the decorations on the eggs.  I made some zigzag, some curvy and some straight.
eggs
Once I had them all laid out, I sewed the strips onto the 6in x 2 in pieces using my sewing machine.   Then, I cut out the egg shapes.  Once they were cut, I placed them on my Eco-fi Plus piece of Felt and then sewed them down.
grass and finish
With my green felt, I cut strips to use as grass.  I snipped the sides different lengths and then rounded the edges.  Using the sewing machine, I sewed down the grass.  I sewed a rectangle along the bottom of the grass, so that the fringe would move.  Once my eggs and grass were all sewn on, I did a decorative stitch around the outside of the mat.
parts of finish
This was a really simple project.  Perfect for beginners!   The kids will love it!
