Give Away: Felt for Embroidery

loveatfirststitchWhy embroider on a blend of wool and acrylic felt? Because it stitches like butter and, unlike cotton, it never frays. The Love at First Stitch project in Joyful Stitching is made with 3 simple felt shapes. Hand embroidery is the star here. It creates a bounty of flowers and decorates those simple felt shapes.giveaway3And now the the Give-Away part. You need a set of felt shapes to play with and to make your own composition. Leave a comment on my blog today and you may be the lucky winner of a bag of felt shapes (both positive and negative). I’ll announce the winner next Thursday.

  1. Thanks, Laura, for putting me on your mailing list. I love your work. It is so … joyful!

  2. I/m looking forward to the arrival of your new book; it’s on order so just a couple of months to wait

  3. Love, love, love embroidering on felt and I love, love, love your embroidered heart!

  4. This is timely – I’m working on a project now using felt and wool circles. I need to replace my stash!

  5. Felt shapes are fun to play with….especially after looking at all the creative ways you have taught us to use them. We all learn a lot from you!!

  6. There is no such thing as too many wool felt shapes..especially in such bright colors. Count me in.

  7. I had forgotten about the negative shapes until I read your post. I’ll have to go through my trash bag to see if there are any I can use since I have been cutting all sorts of shapes from my scrap felt. As much as I would like to be in the running for this give away, please take my name out of the running since I already won a give away but I did want to comment on your posting.

    • Thanks for mentioning that, Janet. I keep a list of the past winners and remove their numbers from the drawing of prizes. That way the give aways are spread out more.

  8. I like the wool/acrylic blend felt because the thickness seems to be more consistent than felted wool. Love looking at your projects.

  9. What a wonderful project. I am looking forward to receiving your book. Our quilt shop has it on order for me. Your felt pieces would be such fun to use. Thanks for the chance to win.

  10. This is another happy looking project, Laura. I am just starting to experiment with hand embroidery on felt so don’t have much of a supply yet but I’m building it up a little bit at a time. Your work is an inspiration and I am really enjoying starting to play.

  11. Your work is beautiful. I am going to have to try embroidering on felt. You have given me inspiration.

  12. I may have missed out on this give away since I was out of town and am not sophisticated enough to use a phone to check the internet blogs (not that I would have anyway). But I will leave a comment – just recently took up wool applique with embroidery and love the process. No needle turn necessary. Yeah! I saved a picture of your project as inspiration for the time when my stitching is good enough to try something more complex.

  13. Have fallen in love with embroidery all over again.
    Did alot when I was a child.

  14. I love your sense of play that is reflected in your artwork. Thank you for sharing and the inspiration.

  15. Love the stitching and designs! I have also discovered the pleasure of embroidering on wool – it is like stitching through butter!
