Hooray for felt!

November 13, 2007 at 11:54 pm 5 comments

I am loving wool felt right now– the mottled look of it, the feel, and how easy it is to work with. I’d really like to make something useful with it. When I buy it, I’m thinking, “Wallet? Journal cover? Tote bag?” … but I keep ending up with little monsters…

Don’t call me practical.

Well, this guy does make me smile when I spot him grinning up at me. He reminds me of the time I spent in Japan, where cute little monsters abound. I think I was inspired by Domo-kun, a mascot who I often saw on TV in Japan and who I am now seeing in shops all over the place here in the U.S.

Next time, a change purse!

    Can I ask where you get your wool felt from? I love using 100% wool felt ….

    Hi RachealRabbit– I bought my wool at JoAnn’s, but unfortunately their color selection isn’t great. They do carry 100% wool, as well as several other combinations of wool and polyester, but often the color you want isn’t available in the combination you want (or at all). I’ve had my eye on the wool felt at colonialcrafts.com, but haven’t ordered any yet.

    Here’s the link:
