A Couple “Little’s” and a Smack Down…

I have a new felt brooch to share with you. I used my tiny heart sizzix paddle punch that I got from my Mom for Christmas last year for the flower, some seed beads, rick rack and some new felt I got for Christmas this year (thanks Mom!). I think it turned out pretty cute!

Have you heard about this?Feltsmackdown

Over at My Life Under the Bus they are having a contest. It is based on this terrific book by Salley Mavor:

Well, I couldn’t help myself…I signed up. I’ve already made a sketch of what I want to do. I’ve also made the main “little” that will be in my piece. She’s tiny. I mean TINY! Her head is 10mm. Other than my beadwork, this is the smallest scale I have ever done! I loved making the clothes for her, very delicate and tiny embroidery! I used a very small applique needle and a single strand of embroidery floss for the embellishments. I’m not going to show the whole project until I get it all done, but I wanted to show my “little” off…so here she is:

Oh, she's darling!!!!
I've no talent as such . . . actually, I need to finish ALL my other crafties that are half done or bought to be done BEFORE I start another craft venue. BUT you INSPIRE me so much and you are so good at this!! May God watch over your crafty heart and lend His hand to yours. :) Oh, love the brooch, too!!! Very feminine.

Your brooch is so nice and look at your little person. I bought that book for my daughter but she has not made anything from it yet. You did a super job.
