Felt Mushroom House

A craft project I just finished:  this lovely little felt Mushroom House:

felt mushroom houseI saw these pictured on this wonderful blog, and the author was nice enough to post the pattern (which she created herself).

I haven’t had the time to do much needlework in recent years, and I had fun fiddling with the embroidery details on this.  I just used French knots, lazy daisies, and a straight-type stitch (don’t know the name).  It’s just made from felt, a bit of stuffing, and embroidery floss – all things I had around the house already.

Can’t you just imagine fairies coming to play amongst these at night?

  1. This is way too cute to stick pins in! 🙂

    I can’t believe you saw this, finished it, and considered it fun….. it looks very complicated and professional to me.
    I wish I had your skills!

    Thanks for being a part of TIMHT.

  2. Oh, how cute is that!!! I wish I could do things like this. I admire you so much for being able to craft something that adorable.

  3. Oh, that’s adorable! Make the little house too. I may have to get back into sewing and plastic canvas with all my domestic diva friends out there. :o) I’m feeling inspired again. I had quit stitching because of dual carpal tunnel but that’s all gone now. Surgery fixed that right up!
    Stay warm!

  4. How cute is that! I especially love the windows with flower boxes attached!
    Without my crafts, I think I would have gone mad years ago. Stitching is my therapy!

Thanks for taking the time to comment. I enjoy hearing your thoughts.
