You might have thought we’d gone a little bit cuckoo when you read the title of this Monday Makes, but we’re certain you’ll go cuckoo over Bugs and Fishes! This blog is authored by Laura, a wonderful lady with a love for all things felt. Whether you’re a beginner or a novice looking for some cute inspiration, you’ve got to check this out!
We’re not sure we’ve actually talked much about felt crafts before on our Monday Makes series, but there really is nobody better than Laura to get the ball rolling. She creates some adorable bits and pieces on her blog, and often shares the tutorials alongside them! They’re all free to view and the materials used can be bought at your local craft shop, making her projects very accessible. We’re particularly fond of these felt blackbirds, this gorgeous reindeer bauble, and these hot air balloon tape measures, which are both cute and functional!
Whilst felt is Laura’s primary craft, she also shares posts on several other crafts, including embroidery and cross-stitching. So if felt isn’t your thing, maybe you could check these posts out instead? We love this Never Stop Learning embroidery pattern, this Be Kind To Yourself pattern, and this Stop Faffing About & Just Get On With It cross-stitch sampler. It’s worth exploring through the tutorials section to see if you can find any others you may like!
Not only does Laura write this fabulous blog, she’s also released two books about creating felt items. If you’re into felt crafts, you should definitely think about taking a peek at them. Or if you’re a bit nosey and would like some lifestyle thrown in with the crafts, you can scroll through the homepage of the blog and look at Laura’s posts in chronological order. She talks a lot about what she’s been getting up to, as well as what she’s been making, which is very refreshing!
