I have always thought I would like to make one of these for a future baby's room. What a great tactile experience and a focal point for what will otherwise be a rather neutral room! Maybe I should get started now... Grosgrain: Felt Balls Rug for Baby's Nursery (good sourcing info for wool roving)
DIY Woven Danish Heart Baskets. I really love this craft - cheap, easy, pretty homemade, and a great end result! These are made out of felt but you can use construction paper. For the entire tutorial go to Radmegan in Words and Pictures here. She has more color combinations and a very clear video on her site (that I just watched that makes everything crystal clear on the weaving).
DIY..to see the little video of how to do it..see where it says "blog" and click there..simple video of how they stitch this pattern together!! could use all kinds of material..leather, denim.etc...heck even add an insole!!
