Embellish Felt

Today's color inspiration comes courtesy of Embellish Magazine, with the added challenge of using felt. This was certainly a difficult one for me. First of all, the colors are not ones I would typically put together. Secondly, I have a weird thing with felt- I can't touch it! Not sure why, but for as long as I can remember, the feeling of felt really makes me uncomfortable- which posed a problem for this challenge. I ended up wearing a pair of leather gloves while I worked, and it was perfect! Here's what I came up with:

I machine-stitched the felt, and through trial and error figured out a really simple way to do it. I printed an image I liked onto computer paper, placed that on the felt, and sewed over it (see pic below). It was easy to trace the design, and once I flipped it over, it looked beautiful! I hope to use this technique again soon- it was a lot of fun!
