* felt organizer prototype

Posted on January 31st, 2006 by maitreya. Filed under Felting.

My craft desk drawer is a disaster area. I made this out of the thick felt I was looking for in a previous post. Anna from twelve22 came to the rescue with this felt she found for me. And here’s the big news: Anna is also the editor of a craft book project in the works! This is going to be my submission. Well, a better version anyway. This was mainly to test the structural properties of a box made of felt. It’s holding up well enough that I’m going to go ahead with the embellished version.


And another big announcement: tomorrow’s the launch for Whip Up, a new collaborative crafty blog. I’m as excited as anybody else since I can’t read the other contributers’ draft posts. I’m contributing a weekly-ish “Best Post Ever” where I find my favorite post on my favorite sites, plus I’ll throw in some other stuff here and there. I’m still reeling from being asked to be part of both of these projects since I don’t consider myself in the same league as most of the other contributers. Exciting!
