Falalala Felt: The Big Giveaway

December 15, 2010, 09:32 am  Posted by needlearts

It’s the holidays. What better time to go a little over the top? We’ve been in felt overload mode ourselves. And now we’re going big with three giveaways! That’s right, we’ve got three packages ready to go. Each one filled with felt and felt goodies from our friends at National Nonwovens. Every package contains:

-At least four yards of felt in various colors from National Nonwovens. There’s a green pack, a blue pack, and a brown pack. As a bonus, many of the colors included are pretty rare shades you won’t find in most craft stores.

-A National Nonwovens calendar and set of swatch cards. What better way to keep inspired and keep felting through the new year?

-A copy of Fa La La La Felt. You didn’t think we’d give you all this felt without a book of projects, did you?

To enter for a chance to win one package, leave a comment on this post by 11 p.m. EST on December 20th. Any post will do, but we’d love to hear about what you’re making for gifts—with or without felt! Three winners will be selected at random and announced on December 21st. Click here for the official rules: http://www.larkcrafts.com/uncategorized/sweepstakesrules/ We have our winners–congratulations to woolensails, kris, and cakefortwo! And a big, big thanks to everyone who shared what they’re making for the holidays. There is so much creativity below, and so many good ideas–from entire felt stockings to felt eggs and bacon to felt candy cane gift toppers!

Oh, and in case you missed our posts with other felt projects, here’s some helpful links:

    I had several friends with new babies this holiday season and I’m also meeting my boyfriend’s young niece and nephew for the first time so my holiday crafting has been focused on toys and sweaters for very young children. I am making an entire army of knitted toy robots (with glittery yarn and a few felt appliques for accents) — my biggest challenge right now is getting them all finished and stuffed by the time I head off on my Christmas visits!

    Catherine says:

    I’m making jewelry (of course!), decoupaged frames, and key fobs.

    As far as felt, I’ll be stitching up some zombies for my son and making wreaths like this one for my family Christmas gift exchanges:

    wendy@thecraftersapprentice says:

    I’m making so much stuff – cushions, bags, bean bags, book marks, picture frame, knitted teddy…. I’m starting to panic as it’s not all finished!

    Missie says:

    I love crafting with felt! I am actually making a few felt gnome ornaments for my co-workers. I have already finished my crocheted scarves for my sister and Dad and a crocheted mobile for my cousin’s new baby girl.

    Kristie says:

    Oh, great giveaway. I’ve made small things with craft felt before (barrettes, ornaments, wrist cuffs), and I’d really like some larger, better quality felt pieces to work with. Thanks for a chance to win some materials and inspiration!

    Tina @ Squirrel Acorns says:

    I love felt! It is so easy to work with. I stick with wool felt or partial wool felt though. The partial stuff is a great compromise between the quality and price of 100% wool felt. I’m currently making an applique tree skirt from the holiday issue of Fat Quarterly, and I want to make some bags for gifts, but time is running away from me, so not sure if I will get to it. Thanks for the giveaway!

    Mammamia23 says:

    How ironic to find this contest this morning! I was looking at the really lovely felted hats on etsy.com in their Project Runway competition and decided that it has been a long time since I attempted to make a blocked hat…well, to be perfectly honest, I only did doll hats in the past, but they inspired me to look up some suppliers of wool felt so I could get an idea of how much I would have to invest to try my hand at “real” hats! So to win this contest would put me one step closer to actually doing some hats!

    Amber F. says:

    I’m going to be sewing several gifts this year. I’m making sets of fabric storage baskets, quilted coasters, and some hand embroidered items.

    Angela says:

    Wow, look at all that pretty felt! Thank you for having this giveaway. I am making children hats for the kids in the family. Kids are so adorable in hats.

    Ashley L. says:

    I’m making crocheted cupcakes that can be used as ornaments, or just as a year-round display!

    Gerrie says:

    I made upcycled coasters from my fabric scraps. They have a felt base! I hoped to make some felted ornaments – still might do it after a trip back east for a funeral.

    Techmuse says:

    I’m making hand-made books–and I’d love to figure out how to incorporate felt into them.

    Susan says:

    I’ve got a beautiful afghan going for my sister for Christmas, then this weekend is going to be lots of yummy baking going on. I’ve even gotten a friend to help out with that! I’d love to win this felt package. I’ve got two stockings and a tree skirt in the works. I love putting those felt crafts together.

    Emilie Ahern says:

    I am busy making quilts and various quiet books for the babies in my family (and my OWN baby). I would LOVE to win this prize, since felt is something I think is adorable and versatile, but I haven’t yet delved into it much.



    Va says:

    Hope you get great responses to this giveaway. The link was problematic for me and I had to play with it a bit!

    The holidays have come and gone around here. I knitted up a storm, and made a great bracelet from Laura McCabe’s Master’s Book (http://www.amazon.com/Laura-McCabes-Embellished-Beadweaving-Lavished/dp/1600595146). Absolutley adore the series!!

    Colleen says:

    I have made coffee cozies, journal covers and felt ornaments! Would love to make some more felt presents. Thanks for such a great giveaway!

    Chris says:

    I am a college student – I am making this week after finals – a few shopping bags and pillowcases! thanks!

    sherri s. says:

    Felt is my favorite! (Nice wooly felt, not crappy craft store acrylic). I’m making a set of eight felt elephants, each with a letter on them to spell out my great-niece’s name (for her room, which has an elephant theme). I also make up a batch of little felt sewing kits to keep on hand for last-minute gifts. Thanks for the giveaway!

    Saganaga says:

    please enter me in your generous giveaway ! thanks !!!

    Erin N. says:

    I”m making knit hats. I am also looking really, really hard for some felt blueberries to put on one of the hats. Thanks for the contest!

    Pamela says:

    Allison4en6 says:

    I’m knitting up a storm for my Christmas gifts! Right now I am knitting my husband a fair isle robot hat!!

    mebekim says:

    I would like to make stockings for my family and if there is enough a new tree skirt. Thanks

    Altobarb says:

    I’m knitting and crocheting gifts–mostly scarves–don’t know why, but I’m obsessed with them lately. After the holidays, I will be working on a sculpture that includes felted balls the size of marbles.

    I love this book! I saw it first at the Handmade Spark giveaway but couldn’t enter because I write for them. I’ve been dying to try felt for some time and this great book would be the inspiration I need!

    Tabbie says:

    Thank you for the ideas!! I am in the process of crocheting and knitting for United Way. I could really use more fabrics to share with them. Happy Holidays to you!

    Alison M says:

    Wow! I’m so glad I found this site a few months ago! You all ROCK!

    I’m making a doll (with felt) for my niece… with a set of clothes. Just saw someone made cloth diapers (AIO) for a doll. Might have to add that to the list :-).

    Lisa says:

    I’m making aprons & Softies for my two little boys from the book, Softies. It’s been a hard year and I’m just now winding down and enjoying the music. Thanks for hosting. Love this site & all the cool projects.

    Stacy says:

    Just a little knitting this year!

    I am anxious to make an advent calendar with felt, I’ve seen several ideas online and I wonder if this book has one? I’ve also been making a lot of felt ornaments – so easy to work with!

    Lynn Karegeannes says:

    I made lots of matchbox Christmas ornaments before December – but have not had time to create since then!

    kris says:

    i’m making felt food(bacon, eggs, toast, cupcakes, fruit, veggies) for my 1 year old neice for christmas.
    its been a hard year with being unemployed so i hopped on over to the dollar store and made christmas AWESOME with felt and yarn!

    Edie53 says:

    what an adorable book! I can’t wait til it comes out as an eBook!

    Heidi Gagne says:

    I am doing quite a bit of embroidery, and I have finished making about a dozen felt mascot/ornaments for friends and family. That book is on my wish list!

    Lianna says:

    I LOVE working with felt and just checked this book out from the library-This is a FABULOUS book. I am creating the ornaments and the birds, hopefully before Christmas. Thanks for the opportunity to win!

    I’ve been making mostly knitted and baked goods this year since I’m so busy (also finishing a novel and just donated a cake for 300 to the Biscuit Brothers holiday event) but a couple of years ago I made an advent calendar out of felt. I made 24 ornaments with velcro dots on the backs and a big padded tree with the other sides of the dots. Very little-kid friendly.

    The book sounds awesome. WTG!

    Ruth says:

    I’m making zip pouches for my nearest and dearest, never made gifts with felt so would be thrilled to win this prize and try it out.

    [...] wanted to let you know that Lark Crafts is having a fun felt giveaway for the holidays, including the FaLaLaLa Felt book and lots of felt to make all the fun projects in [...]

    Sharon Orella says:

    The felted tree’s are very attractive and look like they woudl be fun to make. I hope you pick me…

    SewLindaAnn says:

    I’ve read so much about that book online I had to put it on my wish list. I’m making purses, dish towels, crocheted ornaments for mini-trees (part of the gift), and hopefully a couple of aprons and lap quilts. Thanks for the chance, I’d love to have all the felt – and the book.

    Susheela305 says:

    4 Yards and a book – I’d be in heaven! I’m making 100% cotton reversible grocery or tote bags, aprons, wine bottle bags, placemats and table runners, small purses AND the lovely felted “green bag edition” that was posted last week for the gift bag!

    Hayley Cox says:

    I LOVE felt. I’ve been using wool roving lately, both wet felting beads and needle felting interns. I’d love to needle felt something onto these :)

    Irishknitter1955 says:

    Multiple knitted moebius, shawls, mittens, hats, watercolor painted origami ornaments, mixed media collage (including felt flowers, leaves, etc.) are some of the handmades this year. To replenish supplies with new ideas would, indeed be a blessing. Thanks for the give away!

    Carlie says:

    I think Fa la la la Felt looks like a fun book! Please sing me up for the giveaway…thanks.

    Djsherline says:

    Oh honey — what am I **not** making! My husband says it’s like living in an Arts & Crafts cabin right now. This October I did my first canning ever, and I’ve been procrastinating about making popsicle/fudgicle soaps (this weekend for sure…I hope). Sachets are big again this year — even the guys want them now. A few kitchen towels, a hold-over from last year (I ordered way too many blanks). Purell cases. Beanbags. Purse-size sewing kits. A few pincushions. Aprons. My sewing, felting, and embroidery machines are starting to give off smoke! I am usually not this crafty, but I guess all of a sudden…I am! Felt-R-Us!!!!

    Laurie Fidler says:

    For me making art, either ceramics, gourds, journal design, or just messing about with jewelry and assorted crafts, it’s all about getting to that obsessive meditation where time stops, and creativity is the only sound. Felt is a softening of my creative arteries, kinda like clay- tactile and moldable, particularly enjoy the colors available. I like making containers and journal covers by using felt and assorted ephemera.

    Sewkatiedid says:

    Love anything that starts with Fa La La.

    Juli says:

    I am not making much this year. I guess I could use a new book for inspiration….

    bailee says:

    This was one of my holiday felt projects; I actually used a ton of felt in my holiday decor this year!


    I also used felt to make peppermint pillows, a garland, little mitten ornaments, and in my advent calendar. Felt is also great for making play foods as gifts for little kids.

    Purpleone says:

    Felting is at the top of my list for the new year! A fabric pack and book would be a giant leap in the right direction!

    What a sweet giveaway! I used felt this year to make brooches based on these garland flowers: http://www.bhg-digital.com/bhg/201012?pg=67#pg67 Then I attached them to purchased cardigans. So wuick and lvoely to make!

    Paula says:

    I am just learning felting so none of my homecrafted gifts this year will be felt projects. Those will be on the list for NEXT year. In the meantime, this Christmas I am stitching up various plastic canvas needlepoint gifts for friends and family, decorating a couple of wreaths for my in-laws and us, doing embroidered monogrammed handkerchiefs by hand for my father-in-law, and whipping up a latch hook wall hanging of orca whales for my BFF. I’m exhausted! LOL But this felting package would go far in helping me get ready for next year’s gift list!

    Tanya says:

    I have a pair of legwarmers that I ‘m knitting for my daughter, one is done, one more to do!

    Wormlynn says:

    For Thanks Giving this year I helped the two darling children I nanny to make felt Turkey magnets, they turned out so cool!

    justval says:

    Let’s see, this Christmas I still have on my to do list of making coasters out of old felted wool sweaters and several knitted handwarmers and knitted cowls that are unfinished. It has been bitterly cold so far in North Carolina so the gloves and cowls will be welcomed. Repurposed sweaters makes for a greener Christmas!

    Amber says:

    Jean says:

    I am not making alot this year but have many ideas and plans for the New Year. I try to do something after the holidays because it is so blah and not too much to look forward too for at least 2 months. So I will get busy and do some quilty things, felty things and hopefully some knitting. Big hopes just hope to see them through. Sure do love felt though and I keep looking at the book and thinking I should get it. Maybe I will sneak it into the house if I do not win.

    Karla B. says:

    I’ve been so busy the past few months with 2 daughters getting married that I can hardly believe Christmas is already upon us. With our limited budget, I’ve been trying to find ways to make nice gifts that don’t cost an arm and a leg. So as a last minute gift, I am taking felt snowflakes and dipping them into melted glycerin soap (the kind you can get from the craft store that is microwaveable.) I have to get them done over the next couple of days, so I can’t comment on how great they look YET (or how many times I will have to dip them), but I think they will make a nice gift for someone’s guest bathroom.

    Cakefortwo says:

    I’ve personally, been super busy making stockings for everyone in my family for the first time this year! everybody wants something different, haha. My dad’s getting a stocking very similar in design to the “leg lamp” from “a christmas story” because it’s his favorite christmas movie… my mum’s getting a granny-square one in her favorite colors, my boyfriend is getting a “redshirt” star-trek one… my brother, (an avid World of Warcraft player…) is getting a black stocking with the horde symbol in blood red, and my Grandpa (long-story-short) has some Jewish symbols on them :-3 I have yet to decide on mine, haha, but it will probably be a Granny-hex pattern i’m dying to make from Ravelry.com… <3

    Maegan Zigarevich says:

    What am I making for gifts this Holiday Season…well, I have made some Epsom Salt Luminaries from jars, they came out marvelous, I put a tea candle in each one. I also made some Pie in a Jar, I froze them and will put them in felt bags to give them away…loved the idea!! I would love to win this giveaway. I live in Ecuador but my mother lives in the US and I know she would love the book and the felt (and will probably bring them to me when she visits in March, so I will be getting everything if I win!1 :).

    I’m too late for the giveaway I suspect, but wow – what a cute felting book! :-)

    I precisely desired to thank you so much again. I’m not certain what I would have worked on in the absence of those recommendations shown by you regarding my field. It was actually the depressing concern in my opinion, but encountering your well-written avenue you managed that forced me to jump over joy. Now i’m grateful for your assistance and believe you are aware of a great job you have been carrying out instructing most people all through a web site. More than likely you have never encountered all of us.

    Hello my friend! I want to say that this article is amazing, nice written and include almost all vital infos. I’d like to see extra posts like this.

    You actually make it appear really easy along with your presentation however I in finding this topic to be actually one thing which I think I would by no means understand. It seems too complex and very extensive for me. I’m taking a look ahead to your subsequent put up, I’ll attempt to get the dangle of it!
