I thought it was high time to show you some of my recent Etsy purchases. I adore these turquoise textile earrings made by Hagar from Israel. In her shop Gilgulim she sells colourful and original fiber jewellery. Check it out!
I have quite a collection of earrings and decided I needed this lovely flower dish from Swedish shop Annabell Ceramic to keep them in!
Although I do not often wear brooches, I couldn’t resist this Quilt Block Brooch from Pannikin, an Australian shop. They are having a closing down sale now, so be quick if you want to snap up some cuteness!
And finally, I bought this adorable sock kangaroo for our new little niece in the Netherlands. It was made by Marlene from Lost Socks Home, another Australian shop, full of gorgeous sock animals.
Last week I made this table topper or trivet. I cut the diamond shapes from woolen sweaters that I had felted in the washing machine and stitched them together using a small zig zag. This pattern is known among quilters as ‘baby blocks’ – very effective, isn’t it?
Yesterday I made a smaller version that is now for sale in my Etsy shop. Here is a detail:
The back is made from a piece of felt from another sweater:
It would look great under a vase or a bowl – a perfect house-warming gift. It can also be used as a mouse pad.
I have a lot of felt left, so am going to try and make some more ‘trivets’ (strange word…). There are some more quilt blocks that I think would look very good in felt!
