Product Review: Patterned Felt Fabrics by Cynthia
Posted in Product Reviews on Wednesday the 12th July 2017 by Vicki Ormerod
I've recently been product testing Hard and Soft Felt Squares for Minerva Crafts and my major observation is if there were no limit to the day, to my time available to work with this product life would be so joyous, well life is full of more than this BUT - I have so many ideas and considerations that I still haven't gotten to!!!!
I've created a keepsake, trinket box out of the Hard Felt, with some embroidery for added surface design....
It's bright and cheery..... I then used the Soft Felt as a building block for a mixed media postcard - you can see the blue felt on the edges. This postcard represents Hope and Dreams, where as we move from one to the other a window opens while the other closes....
My most recent creation used both hard and soft Felt to make some studio decor using block lettering, some other fabric scraps and paper - decoupaging it to the lettering....
I haven't stopped yet though, I am assembling pieces using the hard felt to make a small book journal....I also plan on making some whimsical succulent type flowers/plants by cutting petal shapes and layering them on top of each other to create the actual succulent shape..... I believe my own creativity or ideas are my limit, I can make these items realistic or whimsical based upon the colour/design of the felt I choose!! The hard felt has a nice firmness or stiffness to it that makes it perfect for applications or crafts that you might want to construct a shape or design that holds...for that reason I used the hard felt when making my keepsake box, because it needed to maintain its shape on its own. While the soft felt I really could use in almost any application, especially if I used another product to decoupage over it or firmness didn't matter. I urge you to let your imagination go wild as you come up with your own ideas to make with these terrific felt squares!!! Have fun, I am.
