project #7

I'm still so behind in my class, but loving every minute of it. This is my latest project. It's just about finished.

It's different things that I love represented by objects I made out of felt. I had so much fun making these. I think felt has become one of my favorite new mediums. It's so versatile and cheap. And all the fun colors!

I chose to make things that were easy enough for me to cut and sew. I'm sure you can guess what each represents....

Camp/boats/water. It's a daily part of my life and I love, love, love it. I can't wait to drive the boats again this summer and have camp filled with kids and staff again!

You can tell this is a camera, right?

I love me some TV, but you all know that already, don't you?!!

This is my favorite one. Can you guess? Yup, it's China and it's orphans. I practiced drawing for a long time to finally get a little face that seemed to represent those little orphan faces. Then I cut it out of felt and embroidered the face on. to work on my next project!

Loooove the felt project. I would love to make things like this. How cute would they be in the kids' rooms? If you ever want to teach a class. i would be your first student.
