Not only do I get to work with my favorite fabric ever felt, Kunin Felt but I also get to work with some of my very favorite designers and friends. Laura Kelly has the cutest dies with Sizzix and her collection of sea creatures are so fun. Since Shark Week is so popular she is putting together a whole lot of projects celebrating Shark Week! Her Shark die is darn cute and as summer also means travel with the kids I decided to design a travel felt board using a hoop. The depth of the hoop is perfect for a back pocket and can hold some of the other sea creatures too!
You will need:
Laura Kelly Sea Creature Dies with Sizzix
9" x 12" craft cuts Kunin Classicfelt, 2 Ocean Blue, 1 Lemon Yellow, 1 Smoke, 1 Pumpkin
1 yard white rick rack Expo International Inc.
1 yard white Peapod pom pom trim Expo International Inc.
Beacon Fabri-tac Adhesive
Dimensional fabric paints
Scissors, Big Shot and cutting pads
1. Insert one blue craft cut of felt between hoop pieces, tighten and trim off excess.
2. Glue second blue craft cut 1/3 of the way down from top of hoop along edge. Trim off excess creating a pocket.
3. Glue rick rack in pieces to front of hoop for waves as shown. Glue peapod trim around edge of hoop.
4. Die cut shark, shells and other sea creatures. Embellish with paint. Let dry.
Ta da! as Laura often says, the travelling felt board is done! Just store the extra sea creatures in the back and let the kids enjoy their own mini felt board.
Happy Shark Week :)
Thank you for coming by, much appreciated!
