F is for Fabric

And my sick obsession with it. I have LOTS of fabric. I keep buying more without finishing my last project. Maybe this is the thing I started with about abandoning projects or perhaps I am trying to pad every inch of my home with fabric bought at a fantastic discount. I am sure I don't have to tell you that fabric bought at a discount is automatically better than full price. I am excited about some of the projects lined up for this fabric. My husband has promised to make me a Gates of Hell and he is making himself a Kaftan. I am not one hundred percent sure if this is the kind of Kaftan, but they give you an idea of what he is going for. They are supposed to be finished by May 19th so I will bet back to you with photos.

F is also for Felt Fruit

One project that I have been wanting to make is felt fruit. Simplicity pattern 4464. I have the pattern and bought lots of felt, but sadly I have not found the time to get started. I also had trouble understanding the pattern. I am not a big sewer so had to read one part like 5 times before I understood what they wanted me to do. Maybe May will be felt fruit month here at Crafts From The Moon. What do you think?

Follow your craft,


  1. Replace fabric with yarn and scrapbook supplies and we are two of a kind! My husband just shakes his head at it all though and tells me he accepts me for all my crazy craftiness!

    I've never really worked with felt before. Is it just like sewing regular fabric?

  2. Not sure what felt fruit is, but I hope you are having fun with the Challenge!

  10. I'm a big fan of fabric too, especially if it has a cool pattern and is discounted. :) Haven't been able to sew much because of school but I can't wait to get back into it once summer starts.
