2008 Gift Tags

Do you remember last year's gift tags for my family? Here I go again.

Names were loosely embroidered with yarn onto wool-blend felt, then adhered into place with my felting machine. There are lots of unnecessary/ugly needle holes alongside each letter because I was too lazy to remove extra needles, but I'll do something about that later.

An extreme closeup of the back shows how yarn underneath connects letters.

So far so good and it was great fun. I'm not sure what I'll do next, but it'll be in the next post.

My 400th post is coming up in about 10 days. I will be having my first giveaway -- stay tuned!
