I <3 Felt Wednesdays - *cycled

So, we have a new guilty pleasure in our household. We’ve found one show on new channel U that has us glued to the set each week. It’s called Junk Raiders: 2 freecyclers have been teamed up with 4 traditional construction and design professionals.  There’s a demanding client, who wants a barren warehouse turned into a sleek modern luxury loft appartment, on a budget of $5000. Reality tv melt-downs guaranteed.

It is possible that this is the epitome of trashy tv!

However, freecycling is a laudable pursuit, as are upcycling and recycling. So this week’s I <3 Felt Showcase features items made from upcycled or recycled materials. Remember, Reduce, Reuse, Recycle!

I <3 Felt - Summer days

Well, it’s been a while, but I’m going to try and get back on track with Wednesday Felt Showcases, where I show you some of the lovely work that is for sale by other talented makers on Felt.co.nz.

Given the lovely sunshine we’ve been seeing recently, I felt it was time for a celebration of summer.  I found all these items by searching for the keyword “summer”, and then I found myself being drawn to a whole lot of sunny yellow!

I <3 Felt - and it's A Craft Affair

I guess it’s no secret. I <3 handmade. And this weekend I’ll be making that love public at A Craft Affair in Christchurch.

This week I feature some of my fellow sellers at A Craft Affair. Many are from Christchurch and Canterbury, and then there are few from further afield (like me). A Craft Affair has taken over the mantle of Craft2.0 in Christchurch, so all the sellers are handpicked and everything there is guaranteed to be amazing.

Do come along and say hello, and check out all the lovely handmade wares, such as those below, on offer this Sunday, 11am till 3pm, at Our City O-Tautahi, corner of Worcester Boulevard and Oxford Terrace, Christchurch.

Wednesday Felt Showcase – 06 Jan 10

Hello! It’s been a wee while, I was busy in the lead up to Christmas, and then I went away on a lovely holiday for 2 weeks. I really enjoyed myself road-tripping around the South Island with the hubbie. We saw some amazing things, including rare hoiho/yellow-eyed penguins coming in to shore for the night across a petrified forest! It doesn’t get much more magical than that.

I’m back home now, and raring to go for the new year. I haven’t made anything new for the shops yet, but I have been checking out what’s available from other lovely sellers on Felt.co.nz. Somehow I haven’t got around to making dinner yet tonight, so this showcase is dedicated to food-inspired craft!
