But all this testing has resulted in a pile of felted swatches. What to do with these little pieces that I could not bear to just throw out. So, I’m on a quest to think of new ways to turn these into useful objects.
Use #1 – Business card holder!
Actually, I’m really stoked about this because I really do need some of these – my cards get strewn all over my purse/briefcase. And I’m constantly mixing up mine with the ones I get from other people. So I have two different colors to distinguish and may even get fancy with some needle felting “mine” and “theirs” on each.
I just took two swatches that were pretty close to being the same size, put them wrong sides together and ran a blanket stitch around three sides in a contrasting yarn. Easy and fast.
