Since I've been busy making project bags
that means I've also been cutting out
lots of wool felt hearts.
I use them for the zipper pulls.
I like to add a bit of fun to them.
So this is a quick little tip I learned
from the awesome website WeeFolkArt.com
Talk about a plethora of wool felt info
and cool free patterns!!!
Anyhoo......I learned that when
you need to cut small items out of felt
you don't' want to use pins.
It distorts the felt and with some tiny pieces
it would be impossible to do anyways.
You just tape your pattern down with packing tape!
It's seriously genius!
The tape holds the pattern piece down
and when you are done cutting,
your felt just falls away because the pattern
shielded it from the sticky tape.
AND the more you use your patterns
the sturdier they become
from all the layers of tape.
So here is a peek at yesterday's sewing :)
Annie is holding a spool of thread.
How cute is that?
