Felt like...


...felting again. I started this project last winter and somehow never got to finish it. It's supposed to become a felt basket like this one (see also for tutorial). I already made a couple, more colorful ones. The inspiration for the flowers, I got from the book "Les Ateliers du jour. Laine cardée. Créations pour toute l'année", a lovely book with beautiful, inspiring projects, one for every month as the title suggests. Ccil, the author, also designed a bunch of gorgeous stuffed animals for the store "Le Pain d'Epices", which are available as kits (a bit pricey, maybe, but oh so cute and fun to make!). I mentioned this store in an earlier post already, and what a store it is! They carry the most amazing selection of traditional toys - the kind of things we or our parents grew up with, as well as more recent toys (but never the ugly plastic stuff!), supplies for making bears, art kits for children, wooden toys, supplies to built doll houses (into the smallest details possible), everything you need for felting etc.. Again, "Le Pain d' Epices" is one of these stores, where I find it really hard to leave without buying anything. But you probably already guessed that... I don't even remember how I ended up there, but I do remember I got really hooked to the needles ever since and I do have a huge collection of carded wool in all colors imaginable by now ...
