Amy is the felt maker behind The Greedy Crocodile on Etsy and on DaWanda too. I follow Amy’s Flickr stream from my phone and so was really taken with these Shetland Ponies when they popped up in her collection. Really stunning work, don’t you agree?! After a few conversations I was delighted to hear that Amy had used some of my wool to make this little fella… how awesome is that?! Of course it meant that I just had to share thsi with you.
Please do check out Amy’s work and buy a piece for yourself.
Thank you for sharing!
‘That’s so cute’, I said.
‘It’s your Massam Fleece I am using as the hair’, Kristina replied.
Wow… have you seen how much work is involved here…
Firstly you must wash the fleece and wait for it to dry. This can take a week or so, dependiong on how much you have and how much Lanoline there is. Then you would have to separate the locks and individually root them into the scalp of the doll. That’s a lot of time and dedication.
Thank you so much for sharing Kristina… She is beautiful!

Susan is one of my customer’s from the Exeter WSD guild’s fleece day on Saturday. She didn’t want to be photographed up close, but did want me to show off her knitting… fair enough and thank you! I spied Susan early on, wondering if the cardi was indeed made in colourway ‘Berry’ and it was great to discover that it was!
Susan was up the night before finishing off, so that she could show me… that’s a dedicated knitter for you!
It was lovely to see how the colours pooled and repeated… it was also very hard to see where one skein joined another, which is tricky when using hand dyed batches. Susan was very proud and so was I… it’s always great to see how my fluff knits up. Thank you Susan!
It’s also great to see how customers wear the fluff they spin or knit with… for example Susan wore her cardigan with a matching top and darker trousers… even her necklace complimented the greens. I loved her style… it really made the knitting sing. I think that’s important when you spend hours on something…

I’ve long admired Melanie’s work over at http://www.etsy.com/shop/feltmeupdesigns and was absolutely thrilled to have her join me as a customer… I think I did a little dance around the stockroom, when I saw the first order come through! So as you can imagine I squeed with delight to see these photos tagged to my personal and business facebook page this week…
These little cuties… owl babies have proved very popular at a store called Pippin’s in Edinburgh. I can see why… I just want to eat them up they are so cute!
Melanie used my Gingersnap handdyed Teeswater fleece to create the fluffy, feather texture and I love that each little baby owl has turned out so unique.
Thank you for sharing Mel and keep adding those photos to the facebook page so that more customers can find you.
Aren’t these fab? I love the softness of texture… cute stuff!
