As well as splashing out on fun extras like charms and ribbon, I've been stocking up on all my "everyday" supplies like packaging and thread and - of course - lots and lots of felt. A lovely courier brought me this little lot on Monday...... and after months of looking a little empty one of my supplies cupboards now looks like this:
(Please excuse the terrible blurry photo - the cupboard is in a dark corner of a dark room and my camera is a bit rubbish!)
I've been investigating a few new suppliers, too, and ordering some different types of felt to expand my stash a little. I know I already have quite a bit of felt, but I'm a total fusspot when it comes to choosing just the right colour for a project and love having a choice of shades and thicknesses to choose from.
A range I've wanted to try for ages and finally got around to ordering is Kunin Ecospun felt - made from 100% post-consumer recycled plastic bottles. I'm delighted with the colour choices available - lots of variety for a synthetic felt... ... what a pleasure it was to open that parcel! Some of the colours are interestingly mottled, blends of two or three colours, which I've not really encountered before:
Plus Kunin also make a sweet selection of printed felt, which is really lovely quality and frankly adorable: Ooh, thinking of printed felt I also recently treated myself to some patterned felt from Muer on Etsy (patterned felt is always a "treat" as it's so fancy and likely to get used in small decorative snippets only for the most special of projects) .... .... I and may have to snap up some of their delighful gingham print felt as well!
