  1. Hey Tania ...
    What are the chances of #1 being thrown out!? LOL
    Anyhoo ... all the way from sunny, mid-winter South Africa: just wanted to say I LOVE your felt stuff! I've worked w/ fabrics & felts in quilting for years, & love incorporating it in my scrapping. Also have 3 GORGEOUS GORGEOUS girlies for whom I LOVE embellishing clothes (esp!! when lengthening corduroy pants etc!! LOL)!!
    Thanks for a great post on AliE's.
    Hugs for sharing,
    Heidi

  4. I headed here from Ali's blog. Your tutorial is great - felt is so much fun! I remember making "cabin" badges at summer camp - back in the day we actually sewed them together.

    I'd love to win your class but I will be bookmarking your blog regardless and may sign up for the class if I don't win. I love to sew, prefer hand sewing because you can take it with you, and would love to incorporate more in my paper crafts. Thanks for offering this chance to win.
