My Latest Obsession, Felt Badges

Monday, April 2, 2012

I've been seeing adorable felt badges on Pinterest and Etsy lately. I decided I needed to start my own collection so I opened up a Felt Badge swap over on Craftster!

I wanted to get a few practice badges under my belt before the swap starts so I put these little cuties together. They are quick and easy to stitch up and I love that they can be used for so many different things; magnets, brooches, clothespins, patches and more!!

I made these for a couple of the other moderators on Craftster.




























I made this one for Mr. Lime as a 'thank-you' for doing yard chores while I sat on my tuckus and made felt badges.
















They range in size from about 2" to 4.5". I made them using wool-blend felt and embroidery floss.

I'm really excited for the Felt Badge swap. There are already 50+ talented crafters joining the fun and I'm certain that the gallery will be epic!

Can't wait for my supplies to arrive and to get partners for this swap. I love the badges you have made, they are soooo sweet!

I haven't made any badges yet but these are just so cute. Question: where do you find your quality felt? Do you have an online source you would recommend? Thanks!

Thanks, Pam! I buy my felt on Etsy from a shop called Giant Dwarf. If you search for 'wool felt' or 'wool blend' felt you'll find loads of options! Have fun!!
