The Vessel Project - "Felt Tool Belt"

This Vessel Project is the "Felt Tool Belt". What a great concept and twist on what our felt can do! Dwight Lowe, a recent graduate from Humber College developed this concept that really surprised us.




Do-it-yourself, craftsmen, handymen or women, this is the perfect companion for all your tools, bits and bobs for while you are working around the house or on the job. Dwight Lowe used our remnant felt in an unexpected way to make this neat tool belt. It features several compartments for your hammer, tape measure, screws, gloves and most importantly your beverage of choice! The Tool Belt can be strapped onto your belt with handy loops at the back and when not in use it can be flatpacked away. A vessel that can keep your tools close at hand and organized this is a fully functional toolbelt that is made from felt.



Materials Used
- Remnant Felt
- Yarn
- Thread

The Vessel Project - "3-Way-Bag"

This is a contemporary take on a felt bag by Neda Bina, a recent graduate from Humber College, and another student involved in The Vessel Project!



Neda has created a truly versatile bag from our scrap felt. Using a little bit of creativity and intuition she has created a bag for everyone and all of the things we carry. This bag features three front pockets divided by the different coloured felt. It includes an additional and detachable cell phone pocket within the bag and an interchangeable strap. This strap is adjustable for use as a handbag, a messenger bag or a backpack! We are truly impressed by the ingenuity and execution of this vessel. This bag is functional and naturally stylish. All the things we love and more at The Felt Store!


Materials Used
- Remnant Felt
- Bronze Snaps
- Bronze Hooks

The Vessel Project - "Wine Holder"

The Vessel Project continues with another student feature. This time from, Telma Ferreira, a recent graduate from Humber College, with her fantastic wine rack! Rack ‘em and stack ‘em! This duo-tone wine rack is perfect for your favourite bottles of vino. We are starting to see lots of felt wine racks out there but Telma takes the concept a few steps further by implementing the idea of symmetry with the shape of her wine rack and the double hand-stitched details which add to the structure of the vessel as well as an aesthetically pleasing contoured shape and contrast of colour. This wine rack is a contemporary view on a traditional vessel that is naturally stylish! Don’t hide your bottles of wine, Telma shows them off in her naturally stylish wine rack, perfect for display. Lay the wine rack down or have it stand upright, no matter what your wine bottles will safely be tucked into this beautiful vessel.
