Needle felted characters, animals and keepsakes, all handmade by myself.
I started an Etsy shop because…
I had a very hard time at my job and was forced to leave due to anxiety/depression. Christmas came around and no job equalled no money for prezzies! So, I’m fairly imaginative and artistic and decided to make gifts that year. I scrolled through lots of crafts and eventually came across needle felting (never heard of it before) and fell in love with a “how to needle felt your own totoro” video on YouTube. Everyone was so delighted with their gifts that I decided to try and sell them. I would like to also say that, needle felting has helped me overcome my anxiety and depression, and I highly recommend hobbies to anyone feeling the same.
I feel inspired by…
Adorable fuzzy creatures
And cult characters
My motto is “I’ll attempt to felt anything” (I once felted someone’s cat that had passed away and actually used some of the cats fur! I also made a bumble bee guinea pig).
When I’m working on Etsy, I like to listen to…
Day time TV and it’s pretty much always Channel 4!
What will you have for sale at Etsy Made Local?
