Fond of Felt?
Exploring the shops on etsy has introduced me to all the fascinating ways contemporary artisans are using an old material, felt. I love that objects that are usually hard and solid, like vases and bowls, are now made of something soft and light. I have begun to use felted wool beads in my necklaces, handmade by others, but if I get the time...I am going to learn how to felt (right after I learn how to make risotto)!
My newest etsy treasury (I've Never FELT Like This Before) features just a small sampling of creative, colorful felt creations.
