|Featured Artist - Dutch Felt Art|
I've known Monique for a short while now and our paths cross quite a lot in cyberspace. I've always admired what she does, particularly as she uses natural materials.
She uses the wet felting technique which is pretty intensive. She says working with fibers is like painting and makes life natural and beautiful.
Her items smell of lavender and cedar as she uses essential cedar and lavender oil in her studio to keep moths away. It's a natural way and smells lovely. A sachet of fresh lavender straight from the French Provence will be included in your parcel. How lovely!
Here are some of my favorite items from her collection.
This baby bottle warmer is made using the wet felting method. Lovely pink and purple dots are felted together. 100% baby soft merino wool is used. This keeps your bottle eiter warm or cold.
Lovely pink, orange and red baby soft merino wool has been wet felted into a lovely bag. Merino wool is very soft and featherlight. The bag is approx 16 wide and 16 cm high. That's 6.3"
This teapot cosy is seamless out of soft and warm merino roving with mulberry silk. After that the appliques have been needle felted on to it.
Beautiful earth coloured scarf / wrap
