haute ideas in felt: a malleable material

I love felting, it is so fun to create objects from a sustainable material that end up having a wonderful tactile softness to them. Wonderful felt resources and artists can be found at Fiber Arts, a main page for the craft. Claudy Jongstra my personal favorite, creates glorious rugs and wearable felt fashion for top designers. Other top favorites include Hut Up, Elfenz Artes, Meken Art, and Wild Turkey Felt Makers. The versatility of felt as a malleable material like clay, allows you to make anything you can imagine from whimsical childrens puppets to handbags.
