July Scrap Happy-22

Or another felted landscape, using the scraps leftover from a felting evening class I attended 10 plus years ago, back in the day when there were evening classes.

Lots of green and blue and a splosh of yellow, begining to needlefelt.
Lots more yellow, a wobbly house and what I hope look like cedar trees.
Adding some stitches and two buttons which were in need of a home.
Pretty darned cute buttons

I’m enjoying my return to felting. I might even try wet felting again.

  1. Love the embroidered daisies Cathy

  2. What a sweet and serene landscape – nice work!

  3. Really clever adding the rabbit buttons. You obviously should do more. So clever the way you build up the picture.

  4. Looking great! Took me awhile to realize the buttons and the rabbits were the same 🙂

  5. I love this, it’s great, and those rabbits are just so cute 🙂

  6. Absolutely lovely. I can see you are really enjoying doing this kind of work.

  8. That is sooo cute, Cathy. The bunny buttons were perfect there. That’s a craft I have not tried…yet. 🙂

    • Plenty of time, winter will be with us! Says she sitting in a darkened room hiding from the sun. We’ve been told to pretend we’re Mediterranean for three days and have a siesta.

    you’re really getting good at this needle felting lark! and love how you added extra techniques, with the embroidered flowers and the bunny buttons!

  10. Love those little flowers you have added to the picture.

  11. I think this is one craft you should definitely consider taking up again. If that’s made from scraps, just think what you could do if you had a wider range of supplies. It’s a sweet, happy, atmospheric image, and I’d love to see more.

    • The tutor was running down her felting supplies so we were encouraged to take bits from a vast array of colours. She was taking up a new career. You’ll love this. Doing makeup for emergency service training practice of crash victims, burns victims etc to make it more realistic for them. She had just started at the local museum making up scary witch for Halloween. I’m not joking she was being paid to do as she put it gory face painting. I suppose film and TV need scary face painters too. Her long term goal was film work.
      Thank you though for this really encouraging comment. You’ll not be surprised to know I have a stash of Good stuff that I am reluctant to start using in case I mess up. It’s at least 8 years old. I must believe in myself more perhaps.

  12. How sweet! I love your stitched flowers and those bunny buttons!

  13. There’s always a reason we hold on to things – this project looks just right. I would never have visualised the end result from what you started with. Job well done !

  14. So cute! and very satisfying to be using leftovers from so long ago – I have some somewhere of about the same vintage, must dig it out.

  15. That is an adorable landscape. I am amazed, Cathy!!

  17. Lovely use of leftovers, your very talented
