UK Special...

Apologies once again for the gap in posts. The snow foiled me again! But hopefully now we're back! And to celebrate, a little guide to my favourite UK based crafters. All these English, Scottish, Irish and Welsh lovelies can be found on etsy and folksy, and they all use my fab favourite fabric- felt! Go forth and shop! You can find my own felt creations here...

1) Siansburys
Siansburys' sock creations are comic genius. Every last one of them has a character and a story, and her specials, such as this Jimi Hendrix monkey are inspired!

Mixko is a mixed bag of glamourous gorgeousness. jewellry, accessories, lampshades, and each one amazing! They have also had work in the V&A, MOMA and other prestigious galleries. Fab!

3) FeltMeUp Designs
Needlefelted gloriousness! These beautiful birdies from FeltMeUp Designs are amazing. Stunning in their detail and amazing imagination. The look on this little Kingfisher's face is so cute!

4) Lupin
Lupin is an inspiration to all felt floozies likemyself. She not only creates the most beatiful brooches, headbands and pincushions, she posts free tutorials, hosts the most popular craft blog in the UK and has just given up her day job to persue crafting full time. Amazing!

5) ElinartThis Elinart pincushion is a little piece of art. It is modelled on lichen and is just beautiful! Perfect to adorn any art studio.

6) British Cream Tea
British Cream Tea's shop is a wonderous place. Full to brimming of fabulous felt sculptures detailes in fabric and stitch every aspect of traditional british fabulousness. Her food sculptures are incredible too!

7)Karen Hilton Designs

Karen Hilton's stunning cushions are fast becoming a cult classic. I am saving up for one of these sets of three to adorn my living room!

8)Laura Fallulah
LauraFallulah's lovely lavender sachet would look fab anywhere in the home, and her gorgeous label looks fab on it too!
