Eco Christmas Stockings

Written by Vicky on December 29, 2008 – 3:05 pm -

Christmas is almost a distant memory for another year but before we pack away our tinsel and baubles can I share a little Christmas project with you?

I couldn’t show these before because they were part of my nieces’ and nephew’s prezzies. I was giving them money this year but still wanted to personalise something for them. Can you guess who is the Mighty Boosh follower, the giraffe lover, the zombie fan and the girlie girl who loves pink and glitter?

I haven’t worked with felt very much at all before but when I do I find it lovely to use, its so forgiving. This particular felt is also kind to the environment because its made from recycled plastic bottles. I’m reluctant to buy wool felt without knowing the history to it (specifically the treatment of the sheep) but with this ‘Ecospun’ felt there are no animal by-products and no new use of oil (plastic) in the fibres.

I found out about Ecospun from the fantastic ‘Crafting a Green World’ blog and bought mine from Craft Felt UK. I don’t think their prices are much higher than other felt I’ve seen in the shops or on craft market stalls and their delivery was super speedy!

    They look fab hon – I bet they loved them. It would be worth seeing what else could be done with the felt (I’m thinking melting it….)
    Happy new year to all xxx

    Sadly Craft Felt UK now seems to have become a completely different shop called ‘Self Adhesive Felt Store’ and they don’t seem to sell the ecospun felt any more.
