Slip On Coasters

Monday, March 22nd, 2010

I’m completely crushing on these coasters from Dimmalimm Home. A convenient way to protect your furniture without the hassle of asking people to use a coaster. Plus, they’re so pretty, you’re guests will be thrilled to use them. Just slip them on before the party and you’ve got instant decor as well!

These coasters are made of beautifully muted felt and come in either a Citrus pattern or Hibiscus style. Be sure to check out the Dimmalimm Home Shop, it’s well worth the visit.



Five Days of Felt: No.3

DIY_Martha_Stewart_Felt_Projects

Have I ever shared my obsession with Martha Stewart with all you before? Surly I must have. For those that know me, they know that I have every issue of every publication Martha Stewart has published since 1997 and my nick name in college was “Martha”. I fall short of being creepy (I hope) but it probably goes without saying that I completly and utterly adore the Martha Stewart brand. Thus, there is no possible way I could leave out some of my favorite MS felt crafts in this Five Days of Felt round-up. Enjoy!

From the top:
1.Possibly the sweetest Felt Slippers ever!
2.Quiet Book for the little ones in your life.
3.Snowflake-inspired Felt Coasters to protect those tables.
4.Inexpensive and easy Scalloped Tree Skirt.
5.Cheery Holly Corsage for a little added joyfulness.
6.Whimsical Tree Stump Trivet for hot pots!



Five Days of Felt: No.1

Happy Monday everyone! Hope you all had a fantastic winter weekend. I have been so in love with all the felt crafts I’ve been seeing lately so I thought I’d  start Five days of Felt, a whole week dedicated to this wonderful fabric!

First up are felt gift bows! I spotted Jessica’s amazing magazine gift bow tutorial on How About Orange and was so inspired! Her directions are simple and super easy to follow. I ended up using felt instead of magazines and the result was perfect! The only other difference was that I used a hot glue gun instead of glue dots.

I was also able to create a bow broach just by adding a pin-back (found at a fabric store) to the back. I adheared the pin-back with a dot of hot glue and then secured it with a few stiches of coordinating thread. For the how-to details head on over to How About Orange and enjoy!

Happy Monday to you all! Hope you had a nice and restful weekend. My husband an I were in search of some new plants and spent the better part of the weekend driving around and comparing prices. We ultimetly found some that will work so now is the diffucult part of actually planting them…. humph! This pillow is looking mighty fine right about now.

I spotted this Rosette Cluster Felt Pillow tutorial in Etsy’s How-To section featuring instructions from Anne Kyrrö Quinn’s book, Felt Furnishings

I’m in need of some new throw pillows and these might be the perfect fit for our living room. I’m loving that bright color and the rosette detail! Be sure to check out the full article here for complete directions.

These felt creations by Christine of SugarElf took my breath away! I came across an older item from The Sugar Elf Etsy shop via ffffound and had to see more. To my delight this felt mushroom was just the tip of the iceberg! I seriously had the most difficult time deciding which images to show. I choose to share just a few of her felt creations but she has so many more great items that you just have to see for yourself!
