Shop Update - New Stuffs!!

Great news y'all!!  I've got a few new goodies in store for you!  My fav of all is the scrumptious Hand Over Dyed fabric!  It is SO GORGEOUS!!  When I first got into doll making, this is the felt I used to make my Pocket Pixies, Woodland and Sweet Stufflings, Gingerbelles, etc.  I have wanted to offer this felt in my Etsy shop forever and let me tell you, nothing compares to it!  I have hand chosen 42 beautiful colours, which I know you'll love and they're available in 8.5 x 13 inch sheets.
Aren't they stunning!!??  Just one problem though...  unfortunately, I've become so allergic to them that I have to wear a double mask while working with them :(  Oh, I can't tell you how upset I am about this!!  I had so many plans!!  So, I will only be selling what I have on hand and when they're gone, that'll be it, I won't be able to stock anymore.  Because of this, I'm selling them for a steal - $5.00 a sheet which is just barely covering the cost of them.
Here's a look at the swatch card.  Because the fabric is hand dyed, each sheet will have slight or noticeable colour variations.  It is also great for wool appliqué, penny rugs and rug hooking.

Below are a few examples of the things I've made with this wool in the past.

Hope you'll pop in and visit my shop before they're all sold out!
Have a lovely weekend!

  1. Shelly, are you allergic to all wool felt, or just this particular brand? That would be tragic indeed if you can no longer work with felt. Hope this is not the case,

    warmly,

    1. Hi Beth, thanks for your note! I'm only allergic to this particular one, thankfully!! I don't know what it is about it, but it affects my breathing and makes my lungs and esophagus prickle. It's such a shame as I just love it soooo much!! Oh well, what do you do? At least I can still work with the merino wool :) Hope you're keeping well! :)

  2. You poor thing! I can totally relate. I can't wear any animal fur so wool, cashmere, etc. are a no go for me, plus I have severe, anaphylactic level food allergies. I highly recommend you keep some liquid Children's Benadryl on hand for when you have these symptoms again. It'll stop the reaction immediately. The more you expose yourself to your allergens, the more allergic you become and the worse your future reactions will be. That tickle in your throat is a sign that your throat/lymph nodes are irritated/possibly swelling and it could lead to anaphylaxis.

  3. I'm sorry to hear that you also have allergies Angie, they can be so life altering!! And it's so true, my allergies have definitely gotten worse over the last few years! Thanks for the tip about the Children's Benadryl, that's a great idea! I wear a mask when I have to be in the same room with the felt and that does seem to help.
