We all know colors appear differently on various monitors and digital devices. An image on your iPad might look really different than it does on your laptop, and different altogether from how it looks on your computer monitor at work.

(Don’t worry – I won’t tell your boss you are shopping for felt while you should be finishing up that TPS report!)

If you need help, I’ve written up descriptions of all the colors of felt I sell (including the discontinued colors) so that you can have a better idea of what they look like in reality. I tried my best. Hope you think they are accurate. The link will take you to a PDF that you can download or print out for your reference. Of course the best way to see what all the colors are like in person is to get my swatch card set! 😉

On Thursday my little one turns 4! (omg!)

To celebrate, I’m having special deals available only on Facebook. If you do not “like” us on Facebook yet, go do it now and reap the benefits! 😉

There have been 5 daily Facebook deals so far, with two more coming. They can be combined together if you want to save on shipping. Also, they are all still in effect thru the 27th, so if you missed out on #1 you can still “claim” it. The way it works is you just send me a message and let me know what you want, along with your PayPal email address.  I then invoice you, and once paid, ship the goods.

All deals will expire the 28th so hop to it if you want some good deals on our felt and patterns!

My main Etsy shop “sweet emma jean” will be closed for about a week while we pack up everybody (and all the felt) and move to Boston. I will still be replying to convo’s and e-mails so if you have a question don’t hesitate to ask. Also, I will still be selling my felt food PDFs thru my “pop up” shop on Etsy : The Felt Shop. Be sure to ‘like’ us on Facebook or subscribe to us on Twitter so you will be the first to know when we reopen the main shop. Looking forward to doing business with you again soon. Wish us luck!

Just in time for Halloween… a super easy new pattern for you from sweet emma jean. Make your baby even more yummy with this super cute, comfortable to wear and easy to make CHIPWICH COSTUME!!!!! Get a copy of the pattern and all the felt you will need to make it in my Etsy shop.

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.

Let me know if you have any comments or questions!

My two year old loves pizza. Just loves it. Pretty much won’t eat anything else. So of course I had to make her a felt pizza play set! I’d be cruel if I didn’t, wouldn’t I? Get your pattern now in my etsy shop. Oh and did I mention that this is a very easy set to make? My niece Sienna, who is just 7 years old, helped me sew the samples for this set. S-E-V-E-N. Don’t forget, I also sell the felt to make it, too. You really have no excuses, people… (7!)

 

This is super huge. Check it out!! I don’t think it will be up for that long, as they like to rotate the front page’s featured treasuries, but here is a screen capture of it, if you miss out.
