wool anchor

A couples weeks ago, we celebrated the impending arrival of the soon-to-be newest addition to the Martha TV Craft Dept at a sweet baby shower in Jersey City. I have spent the past 8.5 months sitting next to Kirsten, anticipating baby boy's birth, and he is now just 2 weeks away from breathing air! Yay!
For the little guy, I felted a blue anchor in a wool baby blankie. I drew the shape onto the corner of the blanket and started felting the outline, filling inward. It went pretty fast and came out super cute. 

Dani made the most adorable sailor-themed cookies for the shower, so I wasn't alone in throwing down the anchor! I think we are all just so excited to meet the little man!! 


  1. This is beautiful! Do you recommend or could you provide any felting tutorials? Thanks!!

  2. hi Elizabeth
    here are some felting tips:
    -work on a thick piece of foam.
    -Helpful to have a single needle for tacking and detail work and a multi-needle tool for securing large areas.
    - remember wool fibers on wool fabric.
    -Clover makes great felting tools.

    you should try it, it is so much easier than it looks!!

  3. Right here is the right website for everyone who would like to find out about this topic.
    You realize a whole lot its almost hard to argue with you (not that I personally
    will need to…HaHa). You definitely put a fresh spin on a topic that has been written about
    for many years. Excellent stuff, just excellent!
