Kinda cool right? I wouldn't normally pick yellow but I had 2 pieces of felt so I used them up. I think it looks pretty cool from the top. If I have time I might make a smaller one, I was lazy and just used the circle pattern from the ear bud pouch!
The next one I made is from A Spoonful of Sugar. You can find the tutorial here. That's a link to the tutorial page. There is some other cute stuff there!
Here are the other ones I want to make:
Cool 3D felt trees
These Quilt as you go patchwork trees
One of these cool trees
But I have a few other things that I want to make for gifts so I'm going to have to balance that out...somehow.. The constant battle between the "want" to make list and the "need" to make list.. I added to that list today by going to Joann's. I went to look for one thing, which I actually completely forgot about until after I left! And then decided I needed some Christmas fabric to make an early Christmas present. But I got a good deal. Did you guys know that you can buy the remnant amounts for 50% off the price, even if it's on sale? So if you see some cute fabric that you want and there is like a yard left on the bolt, ask for 1/2 yard and then what is left will be 1/2 the price. So if it's $2/yard you'd spend $1 for the 1/2 yard and then 50 cents for the other 1/2 yard, getting it all for $1.50. Just something to think about, it isn't very often though that you find the bolts with less than a yard on them.
Have you ladies heard of Mollie Makes Magazine? The first I ever saw or heard about it was on Jenna's Blog. I decided that I "needed' to have it. I looked for it at Joann's (because you can use a coupon on magazines there) but they didn't have it. I found the last copy at Barnes and Noble. It isn't cheap either, cost me $12. But I got a little kit to make covered buttons, don't know what the heck I'm going to do with those, but apparently I needed to have them. I also don't know if the 3 buttons made it worth the $12....
I'm starting up my "other" job again tomorrow. That's going to cut into the crafting time but I'll manage. It's 2 hours a day 2 days a week, so it isn't that bad. I don't know if I've mentioned before what I'll be doing but I'll be tutoring 3rd and 4th grade kids in reading. I did it in the spring and it was 7 hours on Saturday, so 2 hours after school will be like a cake walk. I do have some prep time and phone time but I get paid for all of that too. So, I hope you all have a great rest of the week and do some damage to your "lists"!
