Felt/Silk Scarves

These scarves are wet felted through silk using carded wool and tuffs of fleece. They are approximately 7 inches wide by 65-75 inches long. They can be made to color preferences or ask what I have in a color way at present. i.e. send a photo of a jacket you want scarf to go with. Or I would like green silk with orange and red felt. Or What do you have in greens now? (Captions show if you hover the little hand over the photo or are printed under the enlarged photo if you click on the thumbnail photo)

These shawls are wet felted through silk using carded wool and tuffs of fleece. The hypotenuse of these shawls are aprox. 62 inches. The other two sides are aprox. 38 inches. They include a closure pin with matching tuffs of fleece felted to the pin. I've sold many of these as Hip Scarves to belly dancers.

    Hanging Vases and Planters

    (inspired by Gigig's glass wall pockets)I originally made one to keep flowers from falling over in my craft booth, but people kept wanting to buy it.So... These Vases are wet felted over repurposed glass bottles and stainless wire using my hand dyed wool and mohair.Washable(do not soak with other dishes. Felt collects food bits) Use a bottle brush. Make sure the felt is dry before hanging on dry wall.


    Planters were added after meeting Hannah Todd and her wonderful succulents.Shipping with succulents happens only when there is no chance of freezing here in Maine. I have shipped planters without plants ready for you to plant.Check out her page!

    Pictorial vases

    I found myself not wanting to make more vases and people wanting vases. So I gave myself the fun of making some of them pictorial. The process is more interesting for myself. The result is these vases with flowers, birds, leaves,and trees.The time spent making there is way more than $5.00 such a deal for you!

    felted necklaces and crowns

    These are small projects that I often do as demonstrations. The leaves and flower petals are felted onto the choker cable and the flower centers are embroidered on. The choker has a magnetic closure. The crowns are made from left over felt from other projects cut into beads. These are strung onto ribbion with more ribbions added for streamers.

    Ribbions allow for sizing crowns

    Felt Pins and Hanging Hearts

    These pins came about because I wanted to add something more to some of my hats. My pin hard ware supplier for my shawls sent me a smaller size pin. Oh, and I agreed to do a small valentines show. More stone pins coming and also will be adding flowers.


    Hanging Hearts and Stars

    These hanging hearts were made seasonally. But customers requested them, so now I make the year around. I also added Stars in the same style. They use my hand dyed and felted wool. ribbon, beads, lace, and little bells.


    Hairy Heart Cards

    These cards got their name from my daughter who in early grade school glued my dyed fleece to heart shaped paper and her class mates called them Hairy Hearts. I felt the wool and cut it into heart shapes and keep the water color paper rectangular. Blank note cards for when you have love and caring to send.($7.00ea.)


    Ornements

    This is my Christmas/Solstice product for deaorating. I make four styles: Small ($8.00),Tassled , Mohair on top, and Victorian, mohair and cotton lace bow on bottom. Each is different. To keep the price at $12.00, I can't photo every one, size the photos, and write the html. So I provide group photos. In email, please give a description of colors of desired ball after one of the above style choice Thanks.

    Felt and Wire Ornements

    After years of felting over wire to make the hangers for my handing vases and planters, I tried making a product from just the wet felted wire. I'm having fun with these little products. I foresee more wire shapes in my future.
