Farm Critters

The package I put together for my partner in the Invite Your Partner swap on Craftster was so large, I've blogged about it four times already!  Today is the fifth, and final, installment.

My partner, miknessevie, lives on a farm and they have lots of animals, so there were a lot of farm-animal-themed things on her Wist.  I made these two felt badges for her based on things I saw there.

This little lamb appears in stuffed-animal form on her Wist, but it occurred to me that I could feature just the face and make it into a 3" badge.  The ears crack me up!

I myself am a chicken lover, so when I saw a chicken badge on her Wist, I had to make it! This is based on one that includes a lot of zipper teeth (you can see it HERE ), but I simplified it to suit my own style of working with wool felt.

I THINK that's the last of the felt badges for a while!  (But come to think of it, I have received some wonderful badges in swaps, and I haven't mounted them all yet...when I do, I think I will have to do another post to show you the new display!)

Hi Leslie:

Your lamb is so cute and the rooster (I think so) is really nice, they are very beautifull for your friend, by the way you make me use my terrible English.

Wow, Leslie, you are a true artist. Every day I check both your blogs and am stunned by your creations! The details you put into each of your creations is incredible. I love your rooster and the lamb is adorable. Thank you so much for sharing your talents with us all.

You clearly know so much about the subject, you’ve covered so many bases.
