Make it. Spring Phrases DIY with Blooming Felt

Today, I have a really cute DIY to brighten up your day. These spring phrases are a great way to jazz up a blank wall or to fill in a gap in your art wall. 

You will need: Two sheets of felt (one bright and one grey/white) a template (You can download the ones I made for free at Hello Spring and Bunny Love) some freezer paper, an Iron, a pencil, a craft knife, thread, a sewing machine with a darning foot (embroidery foot), a trouser hanger and super sharp tiny scissors.

Take your template and trace it onto a sheet of freezer paper, then iron it on to your coloured sheet of felt. Use a craft knife to cut around the lines that you have drawn.  Don't press too hard you only want to cut the paper, not the felt. Then you can peel away the 'inside' part of your design.

Place your grey or white felt underneath your coloured sheet and pin it in place, or if your like me be brave and wing it with no pins, I'm such a rebel!  Sew all the way around all of the paper pieces.

Next you get to peel all of your remaining freezer paper pieces away to reveal your stitched design. 

Take your sharp scissors and cut out all of the fabric that is outside the letters (the parts that were covered in paper when you were sewing.)

There you have it, a fun, bright addition to your wall.  Perfect for adding a pop of colour to any space. You can totally customise this to make it say anything you like, in any colour you like.

What phrases would you make, and what colours?? Blooming Felt have LOADS of colours to choose from, Let us know in the comments which one you would choose.
