Feezle Bops by Amy Kelly
I started my shop as a way to share my interests with other artists and possibly make a sale in the mean time. I am inspired by all different mediums form oil paints to bronze and felt. Etsy has provided the type of eclectic community that I feel supports and inspires artists like myself.
I started needle felting after taking a class on wet felting and trying to make something from the left over wool I had. I made a few tiny horses for my nieces and then kind of forgot about felting until the Spring of 2014. I very suddenly lost my best friend, a jack russell terrier named Bosley. For over ten years it had been just me and Boz against the world, and when I lost him I was more than devastated and heartbroken. I wanted something tangible I could remember him by, a way that he could always be with me. So I began to needle felt again and I made a tiny Boz to hold in my hand and take with me always. Felting was a very meditative way to cope with my loss. I started making little stress balls with funny faces, their anxious expressions help me relieve my own anxiety. My friends loved them and wanted some for themselves. So I made more and asked them what these little creatures should be called...and that's how Feezle Bops was born. After that i just kept needle felting all kinds of things, because not only did it make me happy, I was able to bring joy to others. My three little nieces are a constant inspiration and my biggest fans, along with my dad. Their ideas for custom work are always surprising and fun...a deer, a giraffe, a shrimp?! Making custom items is probably my most rewarding work. When I make a miniature of someone's dog I put just as much heart into it as I did when I made my mini Boz. To make a symbol of that unconditional love is something that really makes all the hours and hours of work worth it.
