I'm Lovin' Stitching Felt!




Hello! I am having so much fun with the Papertrey Ink stitching dies and felt! I bought a pack of every color of felt and splurged on quite a few of the stitching dies, and I just can't stop! 


As soon as I saw the Folk Flower stitching die, I knew I wanted to put it on the Stitched Primitive Heart.  I used DMC floss from my stash to stitch this. I just matched the colors best I could. I really like to use a color just a shade darker or lighter than the felt so that the stitching shows up a bit more.

These are the dies I used:


Here are all of the Papertrey Ink Felt colors I used for this:




These are really fun and relaxing to do. I love to work on this kind of thing while I'm watching TV with the hubby at night. I can't drag my stamping stuff back there, and my clay can only  be done in it's designated area, so it's nice to have a little stitching project to work on. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Happy week!

Kay :)

  1. Gorgeous work, Kay! So happy you have found another creative outlet just for you! I know you do most of your stamping now for your teams and while that is fun and fulfilling, it is also "work" in a sense. I predict that Papertrey is going to see an uptick in the sales of the felt/stitching die departments very soon. :) You do such a beautiful job on each new technique or craft you share. You've chosen some lovely colors to show of this beautiful folk heart! Keep enjoying yourself. I truly look forward to your posts. :) Hugs!!

  14. Kay, what a wonderful sewing project. Love the colors, and a good tip for using a lighter/darker thread for contrast. It's never to early to begin creating those sweet Christmas ornaments.
