Felt crafts for Christmas

Few things say Christmas crafting as much as felt. Felt is a perfect medium for nearly every Christmas project.

Lest you doubt this AFC will be featuring free felt Christmas crafts and templates from the blogosphere for the next 25 days .

It’s felt bacon- it’s a Christmas ornament- it’s both!

Seremere’s Felt Bacon ornament is fast and easy. She even uses Liquid Smoke for the full bacon effect. I think I’ll stick to the pine smell but I LOVE the idea of smell-able felt food.

Here’s what you will need:

Materials

  • Red Felt
  • Color 2 Felt (White, Beige or Pink)
  • Red Thread
  • Thread that matches Color 2
  • Wire (about 18″ per decoration)
  • Ribbon (8″ per ornament)
  • Seremere’s Felt Bacon template available on her blog here: http://blog.seremeres.com/?p=149

Tools

  • Pins
  • Needle
  • Scissors

Optional:

  • Sewing Machine
  • Googly Eyes
  • Black Beads (for eyes)
  • Black Felt (for mouth)
  • Glue
  • Fiber Batting
  • Liquid Smoke (to give it a nice bacony smell)

My friend Heather Smith introduced me a couple of years ago to the most decadent dessert in the world: bacon dipped in warm chocolate sauce. (Don’t knock it till you’ve tried it.)
