Design Wall – mini

I have been sewing and generally playing with fabric downstairs. It's great fun until Tuesday decides to mix up my design to suit her tastes! I took an extra piece of foam core board and some flannel I had and whipped up this:


Tuesday squeals and runs over to it when she gets downstairs.


It's all very exciting.


I'm excited to use this for the felt letters I thrifted back in the day. Oh wait maybe you shouldn't click that link – unfinished quilt alert!

  1. fun!! Must make one for the boys…. maybe it will minimise the destruction in the front room a little?? 🙂

  2. And weren’t you worried several months ago that she wouldn’t be artsy? I think she is slowly proving you wrong! 🙂

  3. She is such a little doll! I watched the little video of her “reading” the other day. I could just eat her up! I love that she helps you with the fabric. too cute.

  4. look at her hair! it’s getting thicker…and curly-ish!

  5. Love it! I remember all of those felt boards that were popular back when we were kids…same idea, but perfect for a little one!

  6. And they always had them at church! I have memories of Jesus walking with his disciples 🙂
    I think we have a flannel board, a birthday party maybe? Way too many tiny pieces though…

  7. Ok so I was stressing for no reason – just wait you’ll do it too!

  8. I know I do think it will be a bit curly!

  9. Yes, I think I’ve seen that set!

  10. Awww this is adorable. Like mother, like daughter. How is the fabric sticking to the flannel? I want to make a “pin the hat on the monster” for my daughter’s upcoming birthday. The velcro I have isn’t really sticking to the felt. Suggestions?

  11. Because flannel has a “tooth” to it, it just sticks – nothing needed. Regular, flannel or even deco weight fabric should stick up on it just fine. the only think that won’t is something slippery like plastic. Sounds like cute game – good luck!

  12. Soooo… I can’t use felt? I have a ton of felt and was hoping to use it. I was hoping to make the board and hats out of felt. Will a little bit of flannel on the back of each hat work? Forgive me if I’m being annoying :-/

  13. Felt will stick great, really anything but shiney or slick stuff, you shouldn’t have to back it. You can make the board out of felt – flannel is just a cheaper option. And you’re not annoying at all! 🙂
