Time To Be Creative... 38

Hi there! Welcome to the August MFT Design Team Creative Challenge! Just in case you are not familiar, the MFT Design Team Creative Challenge is a monthly feature, where we are challenged to explore our creative side using a specific theme, product, or technique.


This month, we are getting fuzzy with MFT felt!


I made this 12" x 12" mixed media quilt wall hanging featuring 4 out of the 24 pretty different colors of MFT felt along with many other awesome MFT products.

To create this hanging, I first made some inky muslin fabric using a variety of inks. Once dry, I cut, pieced and stitched them together to create the 8 colorful patches then the real fun began!
There are 8 squares embellished with die cut felt flowers, die cut items and stamped images. Three squares feature 3 different clock faces from Timeless. The background was stamped using Blu Raspberry ink along with the chicken wire stamp from Distressed Background Blocks then topped with a Sno Cone Rolled Rose and Jellybean Green Royal Leaves.


Two squares feature two kraft die cut butterflies ~ the bigger of the two has a Sweet Tooth Rolled Rose in the center. The background was stamped using Blu Raspberry ink along with the checkerboard stamp from Distressed Background Blocks.  

Two squares feature two kraft die cut hearts along with a Cotton Candy flower and Jellybean Green Royal Leaves. The background was stamped using Blu Raspberry ink along with the polka dot stamp from Distressed Background Blocks.

Last but not least is one square which features a kraft die cut bird made using a die from Die-namics Homespun Birdhouse along with a Sweet Tooth Rolled Rose and a Jellybean Green Royal Leaf. For the title, I turned to one of the sentiments in Timeless. I randomly stitched on lots of buttons.
Thanks so much for visiting! Please be sure to check out the MFT Blog for a list of all the designers who have fuzzy felt projects to share with you today.

Be Sweet ;)
