These baked goodies are really made out of felt and the descriptions suggest they be used as pin cushions. But they might be too yummy-looking and too good-looking to stick a bunch of pins in!
You’ll find these wonderful little creations at Tutto Bello. All the creations in the shop are unique and made from original patterns. Start a veritable bakery on your shelf and make your friends drool!
If you like wool and you like jewelry, you might like these:
You can find all of the above woolly, bobbly jewelry at Ollies Woollies.
Even though some people might think that wool is itchy and scratchy, fulled products are usually pretty soft. (I know from experience!) According to crafter/shop owner Catherine Svensson, this is no exception! There is no wire in any of her work, either — just pure wool, so nothing will poke you.
I really like the branch-like look of many of the necklaces — it makes for a showstopper piece of jewelry and a conversation starter. There are also lots of flower motifs. And lots of big, bright colorful things. So if you’re a fan of any of the above, do check it out.
I’ve seen lots of nice wet felted things, from scarves to hats to jewelry, but I’ve never quite seen anything like this:
What absolutely amazing work! You’ll find these totally unique items at Feltasy. The work is intricate and it’s obvious a lot of love and care was put into all these items.
If you really want to be blown away, though, go check out the other Feltasy site at www.feltasy.com. There, you’ll find even more goodies, including wall hangings, bags, jewelry and this totally amazing felt dress.
Consider these little pieces of art that you can wear:
You can find these stunning accessories at waterrose’s shop on Etsy. The cuffs are made with wool felt, sometimes hand-dyed (as is the case with the cuff at the very top). Each is an amazing piece of needlework, a celebration of all the different embroidery stitches that can be done. The felt makes a great canvas for the work.
As an added bonus, sometimes the pieces feature other items made by fellow Etsy sellers. Yay for good karma!
Cuffs aren’t the only things available in the shop; you can get rings too. But if you’re looking for a unique accessory, you won’t go wrong here for sure.
Awwww, they’re cute, aren’t they?
These fuzzy animals are the work of Marjji on Etsy. They’re all made from a combination of upcycled and new wool. There are many variations on the hedgehog, cat and mouse if you want your animal to have a different pattern than say, houndstooth. All of them are totally adorable.
I saw this on Etsy and immediately started singing in my head, “He’s got the whole world in his hands … ”
This is from Cozy Cottage Creations. Both wet felting and needlefelting techniques were used to make this globe, which is pretty amazing in its detail. The clouds are a nice touch! If you want the world in your hands, you’ll have to wait a little bit, as these Earths are made to order only!
There are other lovely felt goodies around the store, from trinket boxes to bowls to things you can use to decorate your house, and even huggable things. Take a look:
Maybe in a perfect world, we would be living on idyllic streets with colorful houses and perfectly manicured bushes and dainty flowers. It might look something like this:
(The houses are available for sale too!)
If you have a hankering for creating your mini village, check out Foxgloves, where you can find this landscape and other felted goodness!
You’ll find brooches, collectibles, jewelry, magnets and even a few art prints. Custom orders are also available.
Maybe you’ll be feeling one of these:
If you really think about it, needlefelting is probably a great way to relieve some stress. You take a tool that holds a bunch of needles and you stab, stab, stab at wool until it bends to your will and makes shapes and whatnot.
(Well, of course, it’s stress-relieving until you poke yourself by accident. Ouch!)
If you still believe that stabbing wool is a stress reliever, then Michelle of Sunfleur must be the most relaxed person on Earth! Check out her felty goods:
You’ll also find some hangable art/one-of-a-kind ACEOs in the shop, like this awesome piece:
There are all kinds of wonderful goodies in the shop. You’ll find beaded jewelry. Some hats. Accessories. Watercolor paintings.
Even the felt items run the gamut, from the aforementioned critters to pins to earrings to magnets.
Michelle is a talented artist indeed, and it’s nice to see her work across different mediums.
Sometimes you just need a place to put all your important things. You know, like money, keys, cell phone, makeup, mirror, etc. Otherwise, everything just kind of lays around and then you leave the house and you forget something really important!
If you’re in the market for a cute container for said important things, you may want to check a couple of these out:
Unfortunately, the bottom pouch has already ben snapped up and reserved by someone, but you can still check out the rest of the felty goodness at Black Mustard.
Joline is the gal behind Black Mustard. She knits, then fulls (or felts, if you’re more familiar with that term) her pouches. Then, she meticulously needle felts the motifs on her pouches.
Each piece is one of a kind, and while she can re-create a piece, it of course won’t look exactly the same. She does take custom orders, too!
All things fuzzy and animal-like are always welcome here:
It’s a jacabunny from Squidge. (Now, to be quite honest, I don’t know exactly what a jacabunny is. It’s kind of a cross between a bunny and a pig (because of the button nose) to me. But it’s danged cute, nonetheless.)
Many of these jacabunnies inhabit Kit’s world. Many different colors and sizes. The orange one in the photo happens to be a baby jacabunny. They’re all handmade and carefully needle felted, with the buttons and details sewn on.
If you’re looking for a sweet little creature to keep you company, you can’t go wrong here.
And there are other felt goodies in the shop too!
I have extolled the virtues of needle, thread, fabric and felt before, and these fun items only reinforce my love of that combo:
These super-cute accessories can be found at fabulous fabulous!.
The main draw is all the brightly colored sewn goodies in the store. They range from the totally functional — iPod cozies, laptop cozies, patterned totes and even some stockings you can stock up on for next Christmas — to the plain ol’ fun — plush toys, mini monsters, even a wee non-pointy cactus.
You’ll also find crocheted hats and lots of felt-embellished tees and onesies.
Or maybe you just want that awesome-looking owl pillow above, which must have taken all kinds of time to cut those multiple pieces. The craftsmanship looks pretty sweet.
I have an uncle who hunts big game, and he’s got a bunch of animal trophies around his rather enormous house in Idaho. Animal heads kind of freak me out.
But here is a less scary (and positively hysterical) version of the deer on the wall:
It’s just so much cuter and more cuddly, don’t you think?
Said deer is hand sewn from an original pattern by Girl Savage. Yes, there’s nothing like having fun with felt! Especially when it gets sewn into some colorful and unusual animals like pachyderms and jackalopes:
If you’re looking for a great decoration for your desk at home or the office, it’s worth a look. Because you know people would start talking if you had a jackalope on your desk. Especially a yellow one.
These aren’t your ordinary hats!
It’s truly “art for your head,” as is termed by Rachel at Dreamwoven. She is the artist behind these totally unique and show-stopping creations. They’re so pretty that you might not want to wear them outside, lest it rain or blow off your head or get stolen off your head!
Rachel is also a member of the Etsy Fiber Arts Street Team (EtsyFAST), and is quite a fiber artist indeed. She crochets, fulls, works with felt, does some needle felting, and a variety of those techniques are used in her work.
In addition to the aforementioned hats, you can also find some clothing, gloves and other accessories. Rachel also has a satellite shop in which she sells supplies, and you can check that out at Dreamwoven supplies.
Needle, felt and thread combined to bring you these goodies:
These creations can be found at Loose String. You will find some wonderfully embellished and detailed pincushions, pouches and ornaments. Everything is hand-stitched and super colorful!
The pincushions in particular are mini works of art, featuring everything from tea cups to flowers to elephants (no Fantasia flashbacks, now!) to abstract art to birds. And as the descriptions say, they also make great paperweights, because quite frankly, you almost don’t want to ruin the artistic flair with a bunch of pushpins.
Needle felted jewelry, seen on Etsy:
And by far, one of the coolest pieces of felt jewelry I have ever seen, partly because it is a homage to my favorite video game series of all-time:
All these super-creative goodies are the work of fiber artist Made by Moxie. The shop’s tagline is “needle felted art for the people,” and there is definitely no shortage that here. You’ll find jewelry (in addition to the cuffs, the rings are pretty unique, including a carrot ring and a ring shaped like a round bomb), felt finger puppet creatures and wallets. It’s a wide range of work, all colorful and fuzzy.
There are also needle felting kits for sale, in case you feel inspired to create your own needle-y goodness.
