Felt & Fashion!

Hii Readers!

It's been a short week for us here at The Felt Store head office, so you can imagine the bitter sweet feeling that comes with a short week. While working my way around the internet to see what's been going on the world wide web I noticed for the past couple of months that two wonderful worlds have been colliding and it's become more and more prominent. The textile world (specifically of course felt and wool) and fashion/jewellery :). As most of you know Pinterest is my inspiration go to site, it just leads to so many other avenues and websites that I wouldn't be able to find on my own. Which lead to my "Ah Ha" moment for this post! So many crafters/bloggers/diy-ers have such amazing products or tutorials on how to make your own clothes or jewellery that have our favourite material. Here's another wonderful list of my favourite things :) 

1) Felt Chevron Necklace 

I am just in love with this necklace! The colour combo is just right, the use of popular chevron pattern as an inspiration, and the length of the chain. Everything is just perfect! (if any of you want to go ahead and make this for all means I won't stop you :p) Hehehe. but it's definitely something that is do-able to make on your own.

2) Tri Colour Patch Coat

Oh heeyy fashionista! I am loving the colour blocking patchwork and the oh so bright and bold colours! This coat is such an eye catcher! There is no way anyone can go wrong with owning this. Not sure how much of a DIY coat this is...but definitely something to use as inspiration!

3) Stylish Collar

This diy collar is proof of why I love pinterest! There is no way I would have been able to find something like this on my own! It's such a unique look to add to a ordinary top. And love that this image has step by step instructions ;)

4) Felt Statement Necklace

Statement necklaces are still going strong in the fashion world! However this blogger takes it to the next level by making it out of felt! And guess how the idea came about!? She was initially using that pattern for table decorations. Add a few gold or coloured beads into the spaces to add a more finished look.

So hopefully these ideas inspired you and got your creative juices flowing! Just goes to show you if you look at things from a different perspective you can come up with such fascinating and unique looks. If you've created something similar to what you've seen here than share them with us! I am always on the look out for fun felt things.
