Made from Felt

All these wonderful pieces are from the etsy shop of Rey art. Her description are included as it is all so interesting. I can't decide what piece is my favorite. Good thing I don't have to...

These sweet little hearts were wetfelted by me, then cut, blanket-stitched and stuffed. A natural fibre twine was added for hanging. It can be used in a number of ways - as an ornament, hung on a doorknob, tied around a winebottle or gift wrapping, hung in a wreath, or any way your crafty mind can come up with.

the red against the turquoise is beautiful

This necklace was made using needlefelted beads in three shades of red Australian merino wool. The bead are of varying sizes and are randomly strung together on a black satin ribbon for a playful look. Very light, and a definite eye-catcher. The length of the beaded section is 21 inches.


Part of the Wildflower series, this brooch was handfelted using Australian Merino wool in a combination of black, gray and white (tussah silk blend.) It measures roughly 5 inches in width. Made with 4 layers of fluttery petals, and has been handstitched to a brooch pin.

This necklace was made using handfelted beads in black and gray, and gunmetal chain. It measures roughly 77cm in length (30 inches) and closes with a gunmetal lobster clasp. I used Australian merino wool in the needlefelting process, and I love the contrast of it against the metal chain.

Made using the softest white, light gray, dark gray, and an anthracite colored Australian merino wool, this necklace is lush and light! Needlefelted beads were strung onto a black satin ribbon to create this piece. Can be worn short or long, depending on which way the ribbon is tied. The beaded section measures 17.5 inches in length.

10 cute handfelted acorns in 4 deliciously cool shades of blue. The acorn caps were gathered by me during one of my nature walks in the woods close by, and the bodies were needlefelted and then glued on. Would look lovely as a simple decoration, scattered between white or silver Christmas ornaments for a festive and modern centrepiece, attached to a gift bow or even to use in your crafting.

Thanks for this. I always close my blog before i look at yours, and then cannot post a comment! Funny, i had found her shop and saw the acorns, but did not see the hearts. I have listed mine, deciding to do them in groups for more economical shipping. love, a
