Felting


Felt is a non-woven cloth that is produced by matting, condensing and pressing woollen fibres.

I came across some beautiful felt cupcakes after taking part at the Christmas fair and carol service run by Emmanuel Evangelical Church and organised by Angie Ng.  It is always a really lovely event and many thanks goes out to Angie Ng and her team.

On my stall I had decided to offer some of my art work and cards for sale.  I will be adding these to my website, over the next few weeks.


There were many talented people that had stalls and the one that specifically caught my eye was a young lady called Veron and her Cupcakes by Design.   The cupcakes were beautiful, not your traditional cupcakes, even though they looked good enough to eat they were fat and guilt free.  Veron had lovely designs and they were also scented.  Seeing her designs made me want to try my hand at felting and it seems to be getting quite popular, with several magazines featuring designs and how to recreate yourself

I encourage you to give her blog a visit and see the designs for yourself.  She is in the process of updating and adding some new deigns, so do leave a word of encouragement.


Also on my tour of pinterest I found some interesting designs - (Click on the images to find out more)

 If you want to give it a go yourself there are lots of tutorials available, check out Living Felts or many of the others that will come out in the search results on youtube.  Blessings!
