FuzzyFish...

HA! Over the next few weeks, you may notice an increase in blog posts and Flickr photos involving FELT... The FuzzyFish is born... an online 'etsy' shop dedicated to the joy and colour of that medium many of us love - FELT! mmmmmm x
Of course it had to join the FISHY empire so the name FuzzyFish was an immediate choice - a 'Fish' shop with an ironic edge (never take yourself too seriously, that is my motto)

Of course, after hours of photography, editing, felt in and out of boxes, swatch book making, listing each individual size and colour.... I am hating felt right now.
I am wondering if i took large fourth helping of Nigella's Chocolate Cake without really needing it and this could be 'theee' slice that makes me sick?


The FuzzyFish Felt shop is not going to make my fortune, i know. Tis a competetive market and many people prefer wool / wool blend felt to my 100% acrylic. But this is my felt of choice - i love it! I love the colours and i love the fabric to work with, it is a dream. And, as i buy it by the van load anyway, it seemed odd not to have an etsy shop to sell it all in too?
MMMmmmm, fuzzy, felty dreams in 24 techni-colours ... i'll introduce the new colours all separately in later blog posts ... not because I am attempting a 'hard sell' but honestly because the colours look sooooo good i love the colour fix of seeing them all on screen.

Oh, Luscious Neon fix - 80's revival - i want to play x


P.s. I owe my little Sister a huge thankyou for:
Handing me rolls of felt in the 'photographic studio' (!!)
Organising the colours and the stock control system
Making the Swatch books
Cutting all those little Fishes out
Being good company even though she had a stinking rotten cold
Working on a new shop Banner (on it's way...)
I now declare the *new* Felt shop officially......... open x

Congratulations on the birth of fuzzyfish! I used to make my own felt by boiling shetland wool, but that was when I first graduated and then I realised life is too short! So I'm off to check out your selections mmmmmm

Good luck with the new shop! I do love felt, no matter what the fiber content is. I guess it just brings out the child in me.

KirstyFish said...

Oh ladies - I'm having a group hug **** you could feel my fatigue here!!!
Pouch - acid pink owls screams yes to me! I didn't buy much Punk pink because i thought it wouldn't be popular (and i've already used loads - gulp)
