Announcement   Needle felting brings raw wool to life in the form of natural and safe wool sculptures, toys, jewelry and other unique creations. It can take thousands of stabs and hours of work to make creations of of wool but each one has a life of its own and will bring joy for years to come.

My name is Melissa otherwise known as "a hippie with a minivan" and I am mom to four children. I have always loved the fibre arts but found my calling with a needle and raw wool. Though some of my creations are more for decoration or to wear, most of of them are made with children's play in mind and using a childs imagination.

Please remember that most of my creations are made on order and there might be a delay depending on workload. If there are longer delays than normal, I will contact and give options.

Looking to save on shipping multiple items at once? Contact me for an exact shipping quote. Any overpaid shipping will be refunded.

Thank you for stopping by. I am sure that you will find something that you love!

About

Making people smile one creation at a time.

I have always loved the Fibre arts. From sewing and quilting to crochet and knitting, it have long been attracted to it all, but needle felting and spinning are my true passions. There is something about making raw wool into something, and being able to sculpt with wool that just amazes me.

My creatures and characters are original and many times I start felting without knowing what the result will be. Their personalities arise when I start creating their faces or the scenery that will be around them and they inspire me. My love of natural parenting, including breastfeeding and babywearing, have also come to life within my creatures. I spend hours felting each creation and love the small details. I use mostly merino wool because I love the softness.

Though many of my needle felts are decorations, many are made with play in mind. Some are however a bit more fragile than others. Each creation begs to be touched and to be handled and cherished, and hopefully, be allowed to come alive in a child’s (or inner child’s) imagination.

I hope you love my creations as much as I do!


Thank you!

Shop policies

Last updated on April 9, 2014
Welcome to my little space on Etsy! I have a passion in the fibre arts and have a special place in my heart for needle felting. I love creating something out or raw materials like wool and seeing personalities and details emerge that I hadn't even planned for.

My role as a mom of four often shines through my work because my family is such an important part of my life and I believe that childhood is such a magical time.

I love to create items that will be cherished and that have a function. Even if that function is to bring a smile or bring out someone's inner child.
