Inspirational Felting Videos

So, this blog is getting a bit thin isn't it?! I've been unwell, and not up for blogging much at all, so sorry, but thats just how things go; but I'm getting better so wanted to come back and make sure I didn't just let this all go. I have been felting still, and I'll show you what I've been up to soon. Until then I have been thinking about doing this post for a long time and want to finally post it up. A list of online felting videos; amazing, inspirational, and fun ones, not just the bog-standard "this is how you felt" youtube vids. So here goes:

In at #6 - Mongolian Felt Making

In at #5 - Pure Felt wall art by Diane Schepers

PURE FELT: wall art & architectural wall felts by Dianne Schepers [HD] from Pure Felt on Vimeo.

In at #4 - Bita Ghezelayagh - Feltmaking in Iran

In at #3 - Diana Nagorna - The History of One Dress

Up at #2 - Irene van der Wolf - Kunstwolf - Upwolfing

So here we have my favourite at #1 - On Gentle Threads (About Feltmaking) - Judit Pocs

This one cannot be embedded so here is the link: (and thanks to Deborah from Felters Journey for posting this one a few months ago)

I hope you all enjoy watching these, maybe there are some you have not seen before; and if you know of any that are just as good as these please please let me know, post a link in the comments and I'll check them out!

Happy Felting!

Felted Cat Mats {tested by a cat}

So my friend kindly allowed me to use her cat Chin Chin as a model for the first cat mat! This mat is shown on the floor, but it can be used anywhere; it is particularly good for your cat's favourite sleeping spot on your sofa or bed to save from cat hair and clawing. 
 At first Chin Chin wasn't too sure about the mat...
 then, she started to warm to it...
 and then attack/play with it...
  and then she really fell in love with it::
 In the end it was really hard to get the mat back off her! I'll have to donate it to her as a thank you once I've made more!
So from September I will be taking orders for these improved cat mats - if you want one in time for Christmas get in touch - they will be £30 + P&P (add £6 to that if you want it to be personalised with the name of the pet!) and made to order; I'm happy to post abroad if you need to, and can gift wrap for a little extra. Comment, email or facebook me if you are interested! xxx
