Really nice job. Now I am really inspired to take this class.

I tried some pennant felt and had a lot of trouble cutting it. How did you cut it? Did you use an exacto? I am beginning to wonder if mine was too thick.

Hi, I did use an exacto knife, but switched partway thru to a craft one with a fine blade (pen style, rather than the larger flat blade.) It allowed my to turn around the paisley petals with more control. I spent about 2-3 evenings on each stencil, taking my time. No sense in rushing it and making a mistake.

Beautiful job! Where did you find the pennant felt? I can't seem to find it anywhere.

I could not find any here in Canada, so ordered it directly from Alabama Chanin online. It was well worth it, as I was able to cut out 3 large stencils from the one piece of felt, plus a bit left over for some 'accent' pieces.

Thanks! Since I recently found some at a fabric store here in New York so I bought a few yards.
