One Farm. Finished.

Just squeezing in there before the end of the month, I've finished the felt farm.

The barn in the background

I love how it turned out and I'll definitely be returning to Bugga Bugs for more patterns (mmm..felt food..) - the instructions are excellent: clear and detailed with plenty of photos.

The barn unfolded to show the inside

And I was able to use up lots of little scraps of felt. The finished farm cube measures just about seven inches square. To be honest, Little E is probably still a bit too little to play with it (it has buttons and elastic holding it together); so it will be going on a high shelf for a while I think. "Mmm," said The Small One when she heard this. "I think I could probably do with a felt farm.."

Psst! Don't forget: Storytelling Sunday next week, the first Sunday in February. Have a think and come up with a tale to tell. No layout, craft project or added extras required. Just you and a few words...

Julie Kirk said...

Cute! And, it's possible it will last until Little E's Very Big E - James's Mum just gave us a felt hare she made in a similar project ot yours, when James was LittleJ. Still perfectly intact and now stowed away in my collector's tray. Must take a photo for you.

:-)

p.s: How funny you remember seeing the book on my blog! Of all the annuals in all the carboot sales ...

This is so lovely Sian. I checked out the shop where you bought the pattern and they are very tempting. It is great to see the finished farm and achieved your goal to finish by the end of the month.

I see you've been busy despite being ill. It's wonderful and can quite understand why TSO is interested in having one - perhaps a joint project?
Hope you had a fab time yesterday with Mel. JJ x

Ruth said...

Is there no end to your talent, woman?! It's beautiful and who can blame the SO for having her eye on it?

Annie xx TheFeltFairy said...

Gosh Sian that is amazing! The animals are so sweet and the farmer - well what a handsome chappie!!

Tinkertaylor said...

Adorable ......want one

Deb @ PaperTurtle said...

Oh my gosh, how cute is that!?!? My favorite is that sweet little pig. :o) Adorable pattern, and your work is beautiful, Sian. I'm sure little E will love playing with this for hours!

What a work of art that is Sian, lucky Little E.
Seems like there are now two horseys in your family!

Amanda said...

LOL I can see The Small One perusing the Bubba Bugs site and putting her order in. Can't wait to see more of your felt creations. I'm sure Little E will love it.

Karen said...

Well what can I say Sian? That is one cute farm. Little E is such a lucky boy to have someone like you to make him lovely presents. xxx

alexa said...

Gorgeous! Many years of happy play to come, methinks. Hoping you do a scrap-page about it, so that in years to come Little E, when he's a Big E, will be able to share it with his own little ones and tell them the story of Auntie Sian's dedication and love in the midst of trials and tribulations of her own ... :)

Jennifer said...

I am sure that this will be enjoyed and treasured for years to come. :)

Cheri said...

totally cute - looks like a LOT of work though!

Kristin said...

These are the cutest little felt farm animals, love em' thanks for sharing them.

laurie said...

Kirsty.a said...

That is quite adorable, Little E will love it

Sandra said...

oh this is so so cute .. I can see it will be well loved, and played with time, and time again.

humel said...

And it's even cuter in real life :-) That gingham sets it off perfectly! Gosh, if I'd made it I'd be struggling to part with it.... (Though if I'd made it, it quite possibly wouldn't be so beautiful and thus would be easier to part with!!)

Scrappi Sandi said...

LOL at Mels comment above!!

What a gorgeous gift...you made a fabulous job of it!!

Lizzie said...

Yay for the Felt Farm! It's so lovely and I would like it... perhaps I should make my own.
Little E. will be very happy to have such a wonderful gift (and his mummy will be even happier, I would imagine, since she will understand how much love and hard work went into it!). I bet Little E. will still have this when there is a Little E (or A.B.C) of his own one day...

Cheryl said...

wow that is so cute Sian it is gorgeeous love it x

Ginger said...

I think every little one should have one of these! So pretty Sian.

Amy said...

I can only sigh - it is beautiful Sian :-)

Oh that is so cute. Hmmm, wonder if a certain almost 4 year old I know would like it. Need to send my niece to your blog to check it out. My words are already for Sunday's post, just need to find a couple of pics for it. :)

Giselle said...
