We had a busy week back from our vacation and we are celebrating Teacher Appreciation Week a week early so my focus has been at school and not crafting. Ugh!! However I want to share thie fun book with you. It is Felt for the Home by Kimberly Layton. 


This fun book is full of ten felt crafts to add some color and fun to your home. They are all made of felt and some require simple sewing and or embroidery stitches or are done glue. This book is for all levels of crafters. Hazel wants me to make the unicorn pillow for her. She loves it. I am loving the cacti. I was actually looking at the instructions and am thinking I might try making those with Hazel to teach her a bit more with stitches. Plus cacti and succulent are so in lately.

The projects range from pretty to whimsical and fun. There is something for everyone in this book plus working with felt is such an easy and inexpensive type of craft. I love the felt flowers on the Hello Wallhanging above. I know Hazel will want to try making some of those as well. 


I love how the projects are so colorful and really quite easy to do. I was thinking about making this banner for Hazel's bedroom. Most of it is done with glue so the most time consuming part will be cutting out the letters. There are patterns for the letters and clouds as well as for all the projects. Almost all are full size (except the unicorn only because it is bigger than the book). 

The instructions seem very easy to follow. I love how they always start with a shopping list and then give cutting instructions before giving the final instructions. These projects are meant to add color and decor to any home. Some are intended for the young and others are more adult themed. All are colorful and unique. 

The Cacti the supplies could be bought at Dollar Tree. The terra cotta pots and stones. The felt, embroidery floss and fiberfill can be purchased at a craft store. For the Dream On Banner Dollar Tree has the jute. There are so many different options. I hope you will check out this amazing book and get crafting!!
