EDIT: Just a note… April will cover oversea’s shipping! What a sweetheart. So everyone has a chance to enter!
Several weeks ago we had a new sponsor quietly join our Wee Folk Art family. We are so pleased, to introduce them now. It is Felt-o-rama. If you have never been to the site, you are in for a real treat. I’ll let the owner, April, tell you a little more about Felt-o-rama in her own words.
A few years ago, I was in search of felt for my own craft projects. I just couldn’t find a source for a wide variety of felt in fresh and vibrant colors. I knew that other crafters out there must be yearning for the same beautiful felt and Felt-o-rama was born! Felt is the ultimate ‘blank canvas’ with a texture like no other and is such a pleasure to work with.
Currently, we carry 5 varieties of felt (Bamboo Felt, Recycled Eco-Felt, Wool Blend Felt, Woven Felted Wool, and 3mm Wool Felt) in a total of over 100 colors. In addition, we have a fantastic collection of felt-centric craft patterns and books, needle felting and embroidery supplies, and felt embellishments.
There is such an inspirational world of felt crafters out there and our blog has an extensive collection of links to felt tutorials. It’s definitely worth bookmarking for an endless list of projects for gifts, toys, home décor, accessories, and much more!
I am delighted April decided to start Felt-o-rama. I’ve been using her recycled-Eco Felt, which is lovely to work with, and I’ve just recently purchased some of her woven felted wool that I’m anxious to use. It is so soft and the colors are lovely.
April is offering our readers a wonderful giveaway. 2 lucky winners can have their choice of:

Or Woolpets Needle Felting Kit – There are 7 kits to chose from. Three are pictured below and the product description is for the owl.
This charming owl kit is designed for those with some experience needle felting but adventuresome craft folks won’t have difficulty. Step by step instructions include photographs for each step.
There is enough wool roving in the kit for two owls. Each owl is approximately 2.5″ long.
Each kit contains:

You will also need wire cutters or scissors and a small pair of pliers along with a sponge or foam pad to work on. We recommend the Woolpets Needle Felting Foam Pad. Since the kit contains a sharp needle, children under the age of ten should have adult supervision.
