About

A passion for recycled felt and brass zippers!!

This obsession with recycled wool sweater and coat felt started about five years ago. I had read an article about fulling wool sweaters and how this "felt" could be used in crafty projects.
One idea led to the other and I was incorporating brass zipper in all my brooches.
It took a lot of trial and error to develop this new felt and zipper idea ... in the meantime I also developed some new tutorials for making felt rope and felt beads from recycled sweaters.
I also enjoy making charming pincushions that are filled with handmade wool flowers and pieces from vintage doilies.

    I am mostly self taught.... since a very young age I learned the basics from my mother , this included crocheting, knitting, embroidery and sewing. I discovered the art of making felt from recycled sweaters and I have made this my passion.
