Fun with Felt!

Several days ago I got an overwhelming urge to make something out of felt so I sat and played a bit and came up with a card and gift set for a birthday!

First up is the card:

I drew the pattern myself, cut all the pieces from felt (since I'm not too serious into felt stuff, I just use the cheapo stuff from the craft store) and did a little stitching to make my own felt cupcake. The polka dots stamp and sentiment are both from Papertrey Ink. Here's a close shot so you can see the detail - I even put a tiny stem on the cherry!

For the gift part, I wanted to try this adorable Tea Light Cake a long time ago but never got around to it, so I decided to try making one out of felt. It's not very fancy, but I really like how it came out!

I just freehand cut the pieces to fit around the tea light and stitched everything together. The letters were all stitched freehand and I just rolled up little strips of pink felt to make the rosettes. Super easy, but (I think) super cute!

Challenges: I hope you like them and TFL!
