Felt Felt Felt

I have caught a felty bug.

The little sweetie above is from Suyika on Etsy.

In August I’m going to a felting course at The Sheep Shop and I’m getting more and more interested in felting as the weeks go on. I am tempted to take another course before then actually.

Little felted objects keep catching my eye and I have been looking today at things I could make.

I’m not sure what the correct terminology is for sewing from felt rather than felting; if that makes any sense. Im still on a felt learning curve.

The felting course is from fluffy felt that you use special needles for.
Where as today I’ve been looking at sewing from shop brought felt sheets – if that describes it more?

And I thought I would share with you my virtual window shopping finds while I was getting inspiration.

Firstly I came across this talented lady’s blog Bugs and Fishes .
Laura hand cuts & sews all of her beautiful pieces and has been featured in lots of the crafty publications.

Her blog is a great peruse, a mixture of her lovely work, day to day goings on and some wonderful free templates.

I would really like to have a look at Laura’s book:

And her next book is out in the Autumn:

This one I particularly like the look of.

Looking through Laura’s blog further I discovered she also sells her work, so I hot footed it over to her website. Lupin Handmade.

At this point Window Shopping turned into Actual Shopping. But you will have to wait and see what, I’m on a limited budget this month so I had to restrict myself- though Laura’s work is extremely reasonable.

But I will however show you some of Laura’s website goodies.

I adore this Forget-me-not brooch but it looks like so did lots of other people as its sold out.

This little chap is a cutie too.

I can highly recommend if your Window Shopping or Actual shopping checking Laura’s sites out.

Leading on from this I did my usual Etsy searching and was amazed by the next lady’s Poppies.

This again looks like a completely different felt technique.

Roltinica, Felted Flowers and Accessories is run by a Russian Lady. Again some lovely products the poppy was my favourite.

This wasn’t how my search started although beautiful I’m not going to be making Poppies as good as that!

What I had in mind was more a mobile and tadah … What do you think to this lovely.

Super cute isn’t it.
It’s from Felt N Joy in sunny California.

How do people hand sew this well?! Note to my hands: Hands consider yourselves officially told off for lack participation in such projects.

I’m wondering if I could make a Hundred Acre Farm Animal mobile from felt? – watch this space.

Have fun Window Shopping.
