This is absolutely charming. I looked at it a long time on line and then finally decided to spring for it, and it's just lovely. Your workmanship and attention to detail is really admirable. Thank you!

About

The history of Scissaroo

I love wool! Every time a see someone in a beautiful wool sweater, I think about shrinking it down to make wool felt...okay, maybe not every time. ;)

My love with wool began a couple years ago when I saw an adorable penny rug at an antique store. It wasn't an antique penny rug, but was still cute, and its image was filed away in my head. About a year later, I started thinking about that rug and did some research online. I really liked what I saw! I loved the history of the penny rug, and I liked that I can carry on the tradition of reusing scraps to make something beautiful to decorate my home. I got some wool felt scraps and made a penny rug potholder. It wasn't very pretty, but I learned from it, and made a bunch more penny rugs.

Since then, it has been exciting to try and find new things to make. I get inspiration from things around me, often tearing out pages of magazines, or in one case, cutting up a cat litter bag for the design on it. I also get inspiration from nature and my love of animals.

I try to use reclaimed materials whenever I can. I scour thrift shops, garage sales, and any other place I can think of to find materials. I even have family members on the lookout for materials. My relatively un-crafty husband can pick out a wool sweater by feel! I like to think that I taught him this skill, but I think he developed it on his own to get us out of thrift stores in a reasonable amount of time.

I love working with wool felt. I am constantly developing new ideas for items, so check back often! Thanks!

If you live in the twin cities area, you can find my items for sale at Doodle Bird Design + Gifts in Minneapolis.
