The Cape Cod Collection

A different felt retailer on Etsy, Giant Dwarf, has gone out of the felt business in order to focus on her lovely wedding accessory line. If you were a customer of hers and want to get more of her ‘fancy felt’ – come to my Etsy shop. I’ve got all her colors plus 90 more. I can easily tell you which colors of mine match hers. They are the exact same material from the same manufacturer (she just changed the names).

My latest project for Jack’s room was super easy and c-h-e-a-p cheap.  I got a $5 lamp from IKEA (yes, $5 for the whole thing) and cut out polka dots of all different sizes from the left over felt from the Modern Baby Boy Collection that was used for last week’s safari wall art. I probably cut 80 circles out with my hand punches. (I could have used my Cuttlebug machine and Nestabilities dies, but this time I went old school.) To finish it up I then glued them onto the shade with plain ol’ tacky glue.

Emma wants one now, too. She already has a lamp with a plain white shade so I’m just going to glue the dots (pinks, greens and chocolate brown – Emma’s colors) to her existing shade.

It looks great along side the recycled the paper lanterns from Jack’s Baptism Party!

A month or so ago we moved into a new house and each kid now has their own room. (hurrah!) I am finishing up Jack’s room (he is one) and it really is coming along great. The last few details are being added. Yesterday’s project was making three little pictures to hang above his dresser. They are  felt (from the sweet emma jean Etsy shop, of course!) and only took me a few hours to do. Since they are framed behind glass I just glued the pieces, adding a few sewing embellishments where needed. The great thing about wool felt is you can use ordinary tacky glue and it won’t bleed through like it does with the synthetic felt you get from Michael’s and Hobby Lobby. And don’t forget there are over 120 colors to choose from! So your possibilities are limitless… Many of the colors I used came from my Modern Baby Boy Collection, a specially priced set of eight colors.

We recently hosted a party to celebrate the baptism of our baby boy. I had way too much fun planning this party and incorporating the theme (green and blue polka dots) into every detail I could think of.

A little O.C.D.? Yes. (But in a good way!)

Of course I came up with some clever uses for felt! I prepared a large dessert buffet (all homemade – yes… crazy, I know) – and made cupcake stands to create some height on the table and allow me to fit more food onto it as well. These are so easy and versatile. They really worked out well. Click here for a tutorial showing how to make them. You can use any combination of felt colors to match your party theme.

For the centerpiece of each table I cut out a 9″ circle of felt and set a plate piled high with homemade cookies onto the center of the circle. I then sprinkled paper confetti dots all over the table to add more color to them. Yes, the cookies have  blue and green nonpareil “polka dots”!

Even the straws had blue and green polka dots!

For the take-home favors, I made cupcakes and packaged them in a plastic cup with a cellophane bag and ribbon tie. I looked all over the internet for instructions after seeing this idea on Pinterest. Nobody said what size cellophane square they used or what baggie size so I had to wing it. Here is what I did:

You need 9 oz clear tumblers; gusseted clear cellophane baggies that measure approx. 9″h x 4″ x 2″ (I got a package of 50 in the candy making aisle at Michaels); lengths of grosgrain ribbon about 9″ long; decorative tags (optional) and decorative paper cupcake liners.

Bake the cupcakes in plain white cupcake liners and let them cool completely. Do not frost them yet.  Place a decorative liner into the bottom of each clear plastic cup. Mine had green and blue polka dots, of course! :) Insert a cooled, unfrosted cupcake into each cup/liner assembly. Now pipe your frosting onto the top of the cupcake, keeping it away from the edges a bit. Decorate the cupcakes with sprinkles or whatever extra bits you choose (or not). Now carefully insert the cup/cupcake into the bag (which is easier if you do not have “man-hands” like I do). Use a piece of ribbon to tie the baggie closed.

Attach a tag to the ribbon if you wish. I printed “thank you” dots onto cardstock, used a round punch to cut them out, then attached them to one side of the ribbon tie with these little metal brads I found in the scrapbooking aisle at Michaels. I used paper for the background polka dot on the tag but you could also use a coordinating felt color. 

The Peanut Butter Cup Cookies were the first things to disappear. I got much of my baking inspiration from the fabulous www.bakerella.com.

Here are links to many of the shops I purchased items from to make my vision a reality.
