felting exchange again

Oh my, where did January go ?

This last of January I finally made the little felt piece
for the exchange
The theme of this one was the story of Vasalisa
(I didn't know that so had to look it up first)
Not easy to make something 
that has to exactly fit in a story ...
though it's better that most of the participants
chose a bigger size : 20 x 20 cm
(on the other hand : I really liked
the postcard size we had in previous years)

In the end I decided on Baba Yaga's house

I started with a bit of ready-made pre-felt and the background

Then the house and trees were made of little pieces of my own pre-felt

(against the light)

A lot of stitching along the edges, 
because the first bit of white pre-felt made it all quite fuzzy.

It was sent and received well.

A little over a week ago we had a birthday boy :

yes : 12 already ... time flies 

There were also some felted presents to be made
with which I had some helping hands

he was busy with number one,
so I could start on number two !

hmmmm ...
he "helped" with my sudoku too ...

Both presents are at their destination :
the red one in Rotterdam, the white one in England

(with a bit of "Liberty" that she can use well) 

And ...
more little owls !
(it's addictive)

tiny and tinier

These two have little feet too.

Ready for take-off ...
to the next month !

    The owls are very sweet, especially with feet...
