New Felt Colours!

I've got some exciting news today - after much making of colour charts, photographing of colours and website tinkering, there are lots of new felt colours now available from my felt shop!

I've got five "new" shades of wool blend felt - emerald green, moss, mint green, midnight and ruby red:
The eagle eyed felt lovers amongst you may have spotted some of these colours in my colour packs, but this is the first time they've been available as part of my "pick your own colours" listings thanks to this shiny new colour chart featuring all 65 colours:

PLUS, I've got a whole new range of felt colours - 35 shades of acrylic felt.

I know synthetic felt can be a bit rubbish but this felt is great quality, I use it in a lot of my projects. It's stiffer than the wool blend felt so it's great for designs that need a bit of structure, and it cuts very "clean" with little fraying or fluffing at the edges so it's perfect for cutting out tiny pieces. There are also some very interesting colours in the range, like the neon pink and mustard.

One of my long term plans is to develop a range of patterns, and as part of this plan I really wanted to have all the materials I use available on my website instead of having all the fuss of putting together kits ... The patterns themselves are still on the "to do" list (waiting for when I can magically find the time!) but in the meantime expect to see these new shades popping up in lots of tutorials here on the blog :)

Rainbow packs of all 35 colours will be available from all my shops (they're currently listed on my website and in my Etsy shop) but the "pick and mix" selections will only be available on my website.
