Craft Celebrities

Do you even have the slightest idea of what this post title means? *chuckles* I'm talking about the most portrayed things/animals/shapes in craft world, in sewing, felting, embroidery, paper craft, and a whole lot more. During my oh-so-unprofessional research I have come up into this list, do correct me if you think I'm wrong and/or you have additions to the list.
  1. Owls
  2. Flowers (daisies as numero uno, roses come close..)
  3. Cupcakes
  4. Matryoshkas
  5. Birds
  6. Skulls
  7. Mushrooms
  8. Other forest friends (a tie between fawns, bears, hedgehogs, foxes and rabbits)
  9. Red riding hood
  10. Robots
  11. Monsters (oh, the cute one, if you were wondering)
  12. ..(please add to the list)

By the way, this A-listers here are made about a week ago. Since I really have a big trouble on cutting felt with a pattern (anyone has tips?) I made this entirely with the scissors taking charge. I'd love to share the pattern with you guys, but I really don't have one. Should I make one? I haven't put anything on their backs too, should it be clippies or pins?

ps. See that lovely little hut on Baby G's frame? It's from here.


  1. don't forget gnomes and bird cages, they are everywhere :D

  2. You're right! Gnomes and birdcages! Can't get too many of them! Thank you for reminding!

  8. Very cute!! Yes, panda bears too!

  10. Yep. Agree with that list. A lot of the things on there are really twee. And what about Teapots?

  11. Alice along with pots and teacups and cards and hats are on the rise for sure, but can they beat the long run Owls and matryoshkas?

    Doily and laces, thank Christy, that reminds me about buttons too!

    Pears and apples!! I missed them on my list!
