I wanted to make a project to show how the Spellbinder dies work with wool felt, so I decided on this project, I have seen a lot of hexagon projects and really like the look so this is what I came up with.
I used the Spellbinders Hexagon die the second smallest size. I think it took me about 15 minutes to cut them all out. After I cut them out I put them on a base of craft felt to see how big it would need to be, that is when I decided to use a dab of Fabri-Tac in the center of each hexagon and glued it to the base of felt so that I could still go around and hand sew them on the base.
Here is a close up of the hand stitching, I just did a running stitch all around through both the wool felt top and the craft felt bottom, it gives it a nice quilted look, I just love it. After all my stitching was done I cut away the extra bit of craft felt I had for the base and it was done.
Here it is on my table with a candle, not sure yet how I am going to use it but thought I would just show you how I plan on putting something on it. Oh how I love decorating for fall. The girls at my Ladies craft night last night said I have way too much patience for all that stitching, to me it is fun and calming. It probably took me at least 5 hours total to stitch it altogether but you could just glue it to a base of felt and not do the stitching.
Thanks so much for stopping by, hope your enjoying beautiful weather were you are at. My prayers continue to go up for those in Colorado, New Jersey and the Navy yard who have suffered great loss.
