A couple of months ago, Christin at National Nonwovens sent me a stack of their new Bamboo felt. You can see it pictured below with one of my bears who has noted "ooooooh, it's so soft!" and "Yum! what delicious colors, too!"
I placed the stack of felt where I could see it and wondered what I might make. I came up with an idea and only needed to give it a go. But then ....... my mother gave my daughter, Collette, a bag filled with crocheted jar lid covers that she had made. Collette wasn't sure she would use them so she passed them on to me. At first, I wasn't sure I could use them either as I didn't have any jars in need of lid covers. I put the bag aside.........not too far from the felt............and then, I looked at it and thought, "Hey, I think I could use those to make pincushions!" And the rest is, as they say.........history!The bag was filled with about a dozen colorful jar lid covers. I put one on a jar of buttons, and then turned the rest into pincushions. I used the Bamboo felt from NNW to make stuffed balls that would pop into the center of the jar lid covers. There's a little more to it than that but if you're interested, I could do a little tutorial.
