"Stash-Busting" Flat Felt Projects- Part 2 of 4


Trimming more of the felt into shape.


After stitching...


...and folding down the top cuff.


Containers for holding anything you like.


Stitching a felt 'window' onto the back side of one piece of flat felt...


...and folding it over into a decorative cuff.


The random colors and texture (from the silk additions)...


...make for containers that (I hope) will be useful for many different 'giftees'.


I don't know about you...

...but I can never have enough little containers for holding things!

I love to sequester my 'stuff' in an orderly manner...

...and I think these may be useful for others, as well.

During felting, the lengths of silk yarn often twisted or extruded a bit...

...providing a fun bit of texture for the container's exterior.

Next time: another riff on this idea.
