Folksy Daily Listing Challenge

I've decided to try the Folksy daily listing challenge for June. That means I have to try to make and list 30 new items in a month!

I'm quite slow at the actual making part, but I've got a few ideas so I hope I'll manage a respectable number of new items, if not the whole 30. I'm thinking of branching out from felt and trying some different materials, and maybe some ACEO's. I used to love making those for my (sadly missed) mail art site Nervousness.

Right time to roll up my sleeves, get the pencils out and work out some plans!

Some lovely people have included some of my things on their blogs:

Felt things!

Lately I've been sewing little things out of felt. It's a lovely material to work with, especially for me as I am not good at seams and such like, but I can make all sorts of shapes and sew them quite happily without worrying about fraying or putting the wrong sides together!

Here's what I made yesterday

I've also ordered a felting needle and some wool tops as I want to try needle felting. I'd like to make little black cats, but I may be being a bit ambitious as I've never tried needle felting before.
