Welcome to “Share the Love”, where I’m rounding up some artists and craftspeople who sell their wares directly to their customers. With the economy what it is I want to spend my money with individuals and small businesses whenever possible and I thought perhaps you, my readers, would be looking for ways to support the little guy as we start thinking about Christmas presents. None of these posts are sponsored, I’ve just invited these folks to show you their fabulous products and tell you how you can buy them.
Meet Autumn. She is a stay-at-home mother to three young children. When she is not felting, she keeps busy by homeschooling her kindergartner, striving to live a green life, gardening, and dreams of one day living on a farm with sheep of her very own.
Needle felting is a labor intensive process of taking wool roving and poking it hundreds of times to form it into the desired shape. Each item takes many hours to create. A self-proclaimed perfectionist, Autumn will work tirelessly on your item until it is exactly what you desire. Using wool from a local sheep farm, Autumn creates unique, one-of-a-kind items. No two orders are exactly alike. HeartFelt offers beautiful, affordable creations, that make perfect gifts for the person who has everything.
Before you scroll down, be ready to be completely enchanted, because Autumn’s work is breathtaking! First, a nativity I’ve fallen in love with:
Then, a beautiful felted doll – the perfect gift for a new mother at Christmas:
Then, felted soap – something special to tuck into a stocking or bring to a gift exchange.
Prices start at around $5 for small gifts such as dryer balls or felted soap, and up to $50 or more for detailed large orders such as mobiles or nativity sets. Autumn can felt almost anything you can dream up, so feel free to get creative!
