You may have noticed that all of my recent projects have had the same basic color scheme. It’s not that I’m lazy—I just don’t have a choice! Though, to this day, I swear that I only ordered a couple of yards, it would seem that I accidentally ordered an entire bolt of charcoal gray eco-felt for my holiday gift crafting. That’s right, a whole bolt. A bolt that had to be carried home by subway, and that now must be stored in my tiny Brooklyn apartment. So, please forgive my monotone while I work feverishly to get it the heck out of my coat closet.
I’ve already made laptop cases, iPad cases, catnip mousies, scissor labels, and wallets, but now I’m at a loss. What would YOU make with an unholy amount of gray felt?
#1 – this is the cutest photo ever.
#2 – I posted on twitter, but might as well leave here as well. I feel like I see a lot of felt fascinators on Etsy – Giant Dwarf is the seller that comes to mind (http://etsy.me/gdLUfz) but maybe something hair related? wouldn't use much I guess… but hey it's a start!! :)
Told ya. Goat coats. So they can all form a sports team. Or my plan B is still sound…
You're absolutely right. I must make fascinators. Must.
Haha. Goat coats are tempting. Also, plan B.
A deerstalker hat, so you can look like Sherlock Holmes.
You know, I was just thinking that grey felt would make some pretty adorable kitty-shaped hats.
Felt…..skirts….straight leg pants for winter. Hats. LOTS of hats skirts & pants………& a vest….one for you, one for hubby…..a fitted jacket….pincushions….long johns…hats.
A cover-bag in which to keep a giant bolt of felt.
Any way you can do a simple weave rug with it? Or make blankets to donate?
A rug is a good idea–no idea if the felt would stand up to foot traffic, but it certainly won't hurt anything to try it out.
