Felt Fin Fun!

Like most crafters, I’m on Pinterest a lot, and not just for the hella dank memes. I’ve been clicking around some of the neato felt embroidery I’ve seen pinned lately, and decided to make a fun felt stuffie from a tracing of one of my longboard fins.

Certified DANK

Acrylic felt is pretty cheap, and if you can find the type made from recycled soda bottles, extra eco-hippie-surfer cred points for you. I also used basic embroidery thread and some poly stuffing. All can be found at any local craft store.

My supplies

Tracing the fin template

I went crazy cutting out shapes to sew on

Makin’ flowers

Adding in detail

Chain stitching the vines

I even added beads!

Blanket stitching the two sides together

I didn’t overstuff

I crocheted the edge and added a hang loop

Finished edge

Completed Stuffie!

So this is purely for fun, so I’m going to put it on the cool felt Lei I made for TikiMan a while back. It’s like a funky fresh headpiece:

Can you dig it???

I can see myself making a few of these little felt stuffies for kicks, especially in the afternoons since it’s been so freakin’ hot here. I mean, I did find an image on Pinterest that sums up Florida surfing perfectly…..

Do you think the wax is still good???
