Felt Raindrop (and Fireball!) Pattern

So it turns out that there are no fireball crafts out there on the world wide internets. None that I could find! And as we know, when you discover that a craft hasn't yet been made, you have to create it and fill the gap. (Let's call this the Crafty Rules 34 & 35 of the internet - If it exists, there is a craft of it. No exceptions. If no craft is found, a craft of it will be made.)

In that spirit, I present you with my latest felt pattern, a raindrop, that is also a fireball! How cute is that fireball? I've added a small amount of stuffing and plan to wear it on a necklace.

I turned my raindrop into an ornament by adding a string for hanging. This raindrop can also be combined with last week's Felt Cloud Pattern to create one awesomely cool mobile!

For more raindrop craft inspiration, you might also want to check out this cute raindrop pin by A Morning Cup of Jo. For the knitters, I also recommend this knitted mustachioed raindrop, or this crochet amigirumi Water Sprite/Raindrop pattern.

Despite the fact that it's still snowing outside, next week's Felt Pattern Friday will feature more springtime cuteness. Perhaps a bumblebee? Stay tuned to find out!


  1. If you craft it - they will come... :D The fireball is very cute, you filled the hole well!

  2. Cute!

    Sometimes I do the whole 'Really? How is there no X tutorial on the internet? That's just not right!' Apparently, I've been lapse in crafting responsibilities to fill those voids... :-)

  3. Congrats on inventing the fireball craft! This will be a great necklace and I love your clouds and raindrops in the post below :)
