    I visited Foxglove Felts and found that Carol is a very talented woman living in Manchester, United Kingdom. I love her Sari Silk Flower Brooches–they are so unique.

  14. Ashley Fryer says:

    I loved seeing how she made the felt coasters. That is so clever.

  15. Terri Herman says:

    I love the way classes integrate so many things! I love the way it is tied to literacy, history, design, etc.

  16. I learned how felt making can be linked to the school curriculum which I love as an art major who has two kids aged 3 and 4. There needs to be more projects like this in school. I’ll def. be passing this on to other moms.

    These pieces are beautiful. I’d absolutely love to win as I’ve wanted to learn how to do this for a long time. I loved the precious photo of the little sheep and yorkie on the blog. And the purses and scarves and other items are quite lovely. So much talent. Thank you for the chance to win and I really enjoyed looking at the blog!

    I was really amazed at how many steps there were to making the felted squares. The dove one is very pretty though!
