Feature of the Week: Felt Banana Split Pouch Workshop

Hey everyone, 

Can I just say it's always so awesome to connect and talk with our customers! we always end up finding out such fascinating things that they do with our felt and it's just such a nice feeling to get to know you guys just a little better. 

A week back I got a chance to speak to one awesome customer who shared with me that our premium felt she had ordered was being used for a workshop to make felt pouches. Better yet, they were going to be banana split pouches! And here I am all excited until she tells me that Paul Frank (yes, the Paul Frank) will be hosting the event (ahhhhh) and to just put the cherry on top of this conversation she then tells me that Paul Frank himself had told her to use our felt! Our felt! It's like we're unofficially, sort of Paul Frank certified. Maybe? Kinda? loll both ways I wish I was there creating my own felt pouch because these kids did a fantastic job and our customer who works for Fashion Camp - Design Create Sew did an amazing job hosting! She was nice enough to allow us to use pictures so feast your eye's on some awesome felt pencil pouches.
