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.
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!
Felted pottery has never looked so cool:
All these pieces can be found at Valerie’s Gallery. Many of the bowls, vases and lidded jars in Valerie’s shop are crocheted with wool and then felted (or fulled, if you prefer that term) for their final fuzziness. Some are also wet-felted. A few pieces, such as those above, also combine needle felting with the regular process to produce 3-D embellishments.
The detail in the house scene is really nice, and the other pieces in the shop that have extra decorations give the bowls nice texture. I like how things such as the grapes and the flowers pop out of the bowls. The pieces with the patterns crocheted into the bowls are also well-done.
If you’ve got some potpourri or dried flowers or even just some decorative rocks, these would be nice resting places for those things. Or use a lidded jar as a candy jar. Much more fun than just a glass bowl.
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.
Maybe you like flowers. Indoors. Some nice vases and cut flowers.
But maybe something is preventing you from being able to have vases and flowers in your home. Maybe you’re allergic. Or you have wily, crazy animals (like cats) that like to knock over breakable things. Or maybe you just don’t have the table or shelf space for a big glass or ceramic vase. Or your flowers keep dying. Etc.
Well, how about these nifty solutions?
This felted (OK, more like fulled) goodness is from Pottery in the Round. If you’re unfamiliar with knitting, the term “in the round” means to knit in a seamless circle. So, pots + knitting in the round = Pottery in the Round.
The shop features a variety of pot and vase styles, from simple pots to vases with handles to vases with lids. And there are many flowers, too, to fill your wool pots.
It’s a great way to add some color to your decor, and it won’t break … unless of course, a cat gets a hold of it and thinks it’s a toy it can scratch to death.
