I popped over to see a friend of mine for a cup of tea and on the wall in her hallway, I saw an impressive piece of art that she had made purely out of coloured felt balls. (I'll see if she has an image of it that she's willing to let me upload.*)
Now, this friend is no craft-monster - she's cool with impeccable taste and she really knows her colours. So with that revelation tucked away I saw this little project and it sparked a burst of ideas. At last, a craft project that's sure to impress, and it looks really easy to do.
* here you go... Isn't this great?
