My Creative Space - For the love of felt



I LOVE fresh 'new' items in multicoloured bundles, think: pencils, paper, paints and my newly acquired wool felt! I have banned myself from buying new supplies until after we move, after the baby and when I get back into the swing of things.... yada yada.... but I did get a small bundle of 12 new colours in a wool blend to play with! It is a lot thinner than acrylic but I do love natural fibres and feel guilty using the nasty stuff, it's also more expensive of course but that's the reality of using the real deal!



We also made these at playgroup - cupcake wrappers and foam hearts threaded onto wool with those plastic kiddie needles :-) They could make nice little easter garlands in shades of yellow!

Oh and if you are feeling peckish - I have a recipe for some killer biscuits - Greek Almond.... mmmm.... *mouth watering*

More creative spaces here....

Oh I love kinder art! Sadly, my kids rarely spend time at the craft table..when the kinder teachers were clearing up at the end of last year all the kids had piles of beautiful craft, All i was to find from my little ones pile was his name tag - that's it! Love that bright bundle of felt...
