Needle Felted Picnic Blanket

Lacking detail but the shape is down.

A little snail.

This gnome home is still looking a bit rough but I like the idea.
I added a rainbow border and flower vines to the white stripes.

Had to add purple and yellow and blue blossoms too because  it has to be colorful.

Yes, I know my pictures aren't the best but I wanted to share my felting work in progress. My idea is to make this blanket as magical as possible. I found this wool blanket at a thrift store for 6$ and thought I could do something with it. I brought it home and looked at it for a few days and decided to just start felting a magical garden on it. I've just started this so it's a little bare but I'll keep posting about it and hope someone is actually interested. And maybe I should consider asking my husband to take some real photos with his real camera instead of use my phone :) Maybe someone has some helpful suggestions or ideas for this blanket? I'd really love to hear from you.
  Have a joyous day!

  2. Your blanket is gorgeous - what a wonderful idea.
    Maybe add more insects?
    A lady bird or butterfly?
    But then my girls are seriously into insects right now, so maybe not all families love them as much as we do!

    1. Thank you so much! I actually was thinking about adding some insects. My girls are very into them as well. It's nice to hear there are a few more of them out there. (:
