All things Felt

I was so delighted to come across this felt pillow tutorial from Anne Kyrrö Quinn's new book, Felt Furnishing.  She uses simple technique of gathering and folding to create these Rosette clusters; and with bright orange felt material, it's calling out chic and stylish to any home decor.  Not to mention, it's economical.

Felt is widely used in home decor as well as accessories.  Because of its durability and versatility, they can be used in various forms.  For instance, you can even make them into slippers.  Purl bee put together this easy tutorial with downloadable slippers template for anyone with no prior sewing skills.  You can go to Purl bee blog for the full instruction on how to make this felt slippers.

This brings to mind another talented designer that I'd love to introduce to you, Heather Keiko. Coquese just added her gorgeous jewelry line to our jewelry collections! She's an Australian textile designer who utilises her repetitive layering skills and loves for subtle details to create unique and yet playful jewelry.  Each of her creation brings out the true beauty of the material that she uses.  One of my favorite is the loop necklace in ivory.  Each loop is hand cut in different length and sewn together with the finest German wool felt.  Then, it's threaded together with stainless steel wire cable and finished with a silver chain.  This piece creates a bold statement of creativity and compliments to whoever wears it.
