About

Handmade, upcycled felted wool handbags, accessories and plush

I have loved to make things since I was a child and I'm still inspired by the creativity behind all handmade crafts. I especially love sewing and needlecrafts and have more recently become interested in felting, in particular knitted felting. I have very little experience knitting, so I use eco-friendly recycled wool sweaters, mostly thrift shop finds, for my felted creations.
In the felting process, the wool sweaters are shrunk with heat, water and agitation to create soft and cozy, thick and durable fabric. The felted sweater is then cut apart and sewn into a new, one of a kind handbag, accessory or home accent.
All my handbags are lined. Most are interfaced for extra shape and durability. Stress points, such as handles, are double stitched. For handbags with flat bottoms, I add a stiff plastic canvas between the wool and the lining for extra stability.
I love working with found cashmere sweaters to create plush, stuffed animals. The cashmere makes a wonderfully soft and luxurious feeling soft toy.
All items are handmade by me with love and attention to detail.
