Back to Etsy-spelunking…
I’ve fallen in love with fairyfox, a Singapore-based crafter who works entirely in felt. Yes, that soft, fuzzy non-woven cloth made of pressed fibers. Julie transforms this mundane, multi-colored medium into gorgeous, detailed toys—from toolboxes to miniature vegetable gardens, from bread baskets to casserole pots. (I’m partial to her play food.)
I browsed her Etsy shop with such awe. It does not, however, sell crafted items, but patterns and DIY kits, complete with pre-cut felt, thread, hot glue, and ribbon. All one needs is a needle. I see a weekend project coming on!
She also offers the most darling free step-by-step tutorials on her blog.
