Fall is in the air, my friends! That is to say...I am officially wearing a sweater because it is actually chilly out and not because I only own cardigans! There is something about this seasonal change that always gives me a little creative boost. The laziness and slowness of summer officially give way to an inner desire to become Martha Stewart. So enough with these metaphors! Let's get to the good stuff and make cute things out of felt!!!
1.) Wool iPhone Sleeve
I wasn't joking about the felt thing! These take only a few minutes to make and super customizable, so get creative, yo!

I’ve seen some bad crafty pieces in my time (Regretsy anyone?), but this is definitely not one of them. This Portland-based artist deserves a medal for the meticulous work she puts into her gorgeous crochet pieces.

To see more of her amazing yarn works, check out the artist's website: JoHamiltonArt. Read More
