The Felted Rainbow

Ever since my sudden matryoshka doll frenzy I have been enjoying playing around with felt quite a bit.  I love the way it is such an instant material - you cut it and it's ready for sewing with no hems or fraying to complicate things. 

Last week, with the intention of perhaps treating myself to a new stash, I indulged in some window-shopping on Folksy.  I was delighted to stumble across the Felted Rainbow shop.   They are a UK based supplier of felt made from...recycled plastic bottles!  Colourful, felty and eco-friendly, oooh!

I ordered a pick-your-own-colours pack of ten sheets and a nano second later I had an exciting looking package kerplunk through the letterbox...

Ooh!  You can see the impatiently ripped paper, ahem..!

I chose a selection of pinks and blues and yellows, my photos really don't do the colours justice, but they still look pretty yummy...

Can't wait to get started with this stuff!

They have a Flickr group which I am sure I will soon be adding to very soon!

Ah a lovely dose of colour to get me through a rainy evening, hope it has perked you up too :)


  1. Gorgeous! I love felt... and those colours...yummy.
    What are you going to make with them I wonder!


  2. I'm not sure my last comment went through so I may be repeating myself! I have fallen in love with felt too, I may have to give one of your dolls a go once I have fulfilled my corsage needs - still not exhausted :-)
