This week we are feeling decidedly felt, so we thought we would share with you some of the felt decorations that are on sale in the shop. Made by the lovely Jacquie, these delightful designs have been gracing the shop walls and cupboards for quite a while now, and selling regularly to customers who fall in love with her quirky, homemade styles and folksy designs. Ranging from dinky little felt birds on sticks to large hanging cushions, the felt creations are all embroidered and decorated with buttons and ribbons, in bright colours and soft pastels. Perfect for giving as gifts or to brighten up your home, our favourite designs are the fabulous flowers.
Funky patterned flowers and funny little birds on sticks are ideal for putting just about anywhere around the house to brighten up a dull corner. We’ve got ours in vintage jugs and flower pots on the window sill. Or you could add one to your pen holder for a spot of crafty brightness at work.
These hearts are simply gorgeous, and perfect for giving to someone you love. We think the wreath of mini white hearts would make an ideal wedding gift, or how about the dinky little hearts with beads for a new baby. Hang them on your kitchen cupboards or on the drawers of your bedroom to remind you of the ones you love.
The quirky little felt houses have a real Scandinavian vibe we think and would make a fantastic house warming present for anyone who has just moved home – students off to university come September would certainly appreciate a little homely warmth to take with them to their halls of residence. Or these cheery hanging cushions in vibrant colours would do the trick too. Covered with beading and embroidered with happy words, they are just right for hanging off bedposts or on wardrobes to inspire you first thing in the morning.
Are you a fan of felt? Would you like us to stock felts in the shop? Maybe you like to make Christmas decorations with it or other little crafty bits and bobs – the fabulous thing about felt is that it doesn’t need hemming, so it’s perfect for quick makes. If you are a felty crafter and would like to see various colours of felt on the shevles of Emporia, let us know! Leave a comment below or pop into the shop and tell us in person – we always love a visitor – and if enough people tell us they need it in their lives, we’ll get it in!
