Finally Felt



I have had these colorful pieces of German felt (thanks to FilzFelt) for months. I have actually gotten around to making felt photo albums with them. The cool thing is that the felt is so thick that no boards are necessary in the binding process. The result is a limp style binding. A cozy photo album to warm those cold winter nights!

My struggle was how to add a bit of fun to the cover. I thought about cutting out designs in a contrasting felt color to attach to the cover but this proved more difficult than I anticipated - the felt is 100% wool and VERY thick. So I decided to pull out the sewing machine and add a decorative stitch to the edge of the felt. I am so happy with the results!
