I love felt.
Felt is soft and touchable.
Felt is so versatile and comes in so many colors.
Felt is easy and lovely and reminds me of snuggling under a cozy blanket by the fire.
My felt of choice is high-quality wool or wool-blend felt. They cut like a dream and can come in almost any color imaginable. They don’t fray or tear or pill like the craft felt you find in most craft stores. And I cut a lot.
I cut hearts and flowers and clouds and buntings. But my most favorite (and frequent) shapes to cut out are……raindrops. The fatter and chubbier the better. Why?
Because not only are they raindrops, but they can be flower petals. They can be leaves. There is something pleasantly appealing about that round shape narrowing to a point. Plus I can almost always manage to carve out a raindrop from even the tiniest of scraps.
One day I want to make a giant hoop art using nothing but these tiny drops of felt. Wouldn’t that be lovely?
