I'm must be nearing Fall...

I've got a felting project I'm getting ready for a class.  I came up with the idea of needle felting a Poetry Pillow.  I took a line from a famous poem, in this case, "Fog," by Carl Sandburg.  I used one of Billie's dusty purple felted mats to needle felt the top of the pillow, and I used a portion of Colleen's gray felted pieces to create the back. 

I haven't sewn it together yet...and I'm still looking at it, wondering if I should move the word "little" over to the right a bit.  It's good for me to get away from a project like this, and then when I look at it again, I see it with a fresh perspective.  The flat piece I was working on looks a little different now that it's puffed out by the pillow insert.


  1. The blank space to the right of "little" needs a bit of something, but I don't think you would need to move the whole word.

    I like this idea - very clever.

  2. What a fun idea! Maybe you could add some paw prints in the space Nancy mentioned?

  3. Little cat feet would be adorable.
