Felt It. Love It. Treasure It.
With a father, whose a home decorator & carpenter,
and a mother, whose a fashion designer & custom dressmaker,
I have been surrounded by thousands of extraordinary creative designs since birth!
I also have a passion to design unique items & I wish I'm just as creative as they are!
When I am not busy with my 2 lovely kids,
I love to spend some quiet time to work on my felted creations (wet & needle felting).
I love that I can create anything I can imagine.
Besides, I can support my LOCAL sheep farms right at where I live too.
Here, this is how I begin my FELTasticFashion felted cakes & fashion accessories projects.
Wool is the main material I use for most of my felted creations.
They are natural & eco-friendly & you can treasure forever.
I hope you will enjoy my creations as much as I do!
Have you felt my love for felting yet?!
Plus, my significant other Jonathan who supports everything!
