Felt and Wool

Lately I've had a bit of an obsession with 100% hand dyed wool and wool felt. The hand dyed wool is available from Gladstone Fabrics and is amazingly soft and beautiful with a huge range of gorgeous colours. I've been making some ipod and mobile phone purses with felt and embellishing with felt, buttons and wool fabric.

Soon I will have some very groovy badges, I will be selling mobile phone purses that come with your choice of badge (from the Pod Collective Market Place shop).
This week has been a very creative one for me, making new things and planning new products, and in anticipation of my online shop which should be up and running fairly soon, just working on the design now.
I also made another purse/wallet from a book 'The Poky Little Puppy'. My friend Jacqui was telling me about her fave page in the book so I was lucky to find a copy of the book at Bindaree, our local op shop for the bargain price of 10c! We seriously have the best op shop ever here!
The best things about this week have been spending Tuesday morning at Gladstone Marina with all the Prep kids. Having lunch with two lovely ladies at Chattin Cafe but wishing another lovely lady could have been there too. I've been enjoying the beautiful weather we have been having at the moment, perfect to sit on the front porch with a coffee or a green tea (and trying not to have the cake too) in the sun (and avoiding the magpie that is a bit too friendly and wants whatever I have got on my plate).

Here a some rough photos of some of my felt and wool purses and a couple of previews of some of the badge designs I'm getting made.
