Felt Badges! Stitch, the Lorax, VW Bus and a Monster





 I made all of these for the Craftster.org felt badge swap :) It was such a fun little swap, that I really couldn't resist. They're all done with a combo of needle felting and embroidery. it was my first time using my needle felting tool and I think I'm hooked. It was way easier than I expected! I totally love how the stitch one turned out, and I've got to make one for myself now. You all know how I love Stitch...

Baby bird update: starting on Sunday, he started to be less and less interested in getting fed! He wouldn't fly down to me for a feeding AT ALL yesterday! He's now eating seeds and drinking water all by himself like a big bird and more interested in flying around the room playing keep-away. In his opinion, now that I'm not a source for food, all I do is try to catch him. I think he's afraid of me, which makes me a little sad, but that's really how it should be. He is a wild bird! So next Tuesday, he will be moved to a cage outside to transition into release! :D Things are going according to plan! Happy Thursday!

I came so close to joining the felt swap. I am kicking myself for not joining. I love every single badge I have seen. Your badges were my top favorites, especially the Volkswagen.

Thank you for keeping us updated on baby bird. I am so happy he's doing well. I was worried about him.
