I got something very special for me in my mailbox yesterday! Copies of German felt magazine FUN! And guess what – My “Little red riding hood” nuno felted hood-shawl is on the cover!

And finally a beautifully written article about me and my felt by Sonja Scheungrab
The magazine features many talented felt makers from over the world and I really felt honoured to be featured among them. FUN is a very well done magazine, professional and of high quality. It’s a pleasure to look at and read it – there are many interesting articles that focus on artists and how they came there where they are now. I wish that one day this magazine was published in English as well.

From scrap

I am sure that every feltmaker has bags or boxes full of scrap of felt from previous projects.  These are like caskets of treasures. There’s no doubt felt has a great potential for being a sustainable textile. One of the aspects of its sustainability is of course its raw nature – it keeps the number of textile processing steps at the minimum, involves renewable materials and eco-friendly “making”. The other aspect of felt being green is that you can use all the scrap, no matter how small it could be, until the last thread, the last fibre. You can felt it in, felt it on, sew it or even use for stuffing.

I’ve recently used some of my handmade felt scraps to create these textile cuffs by sewing felt and other fabric scraps by hand.
