felt placemats

The weather in the northeast has made me turn to my coziest comfortable winter items.  I adore felt.  I love the feel, weight and all the items that can be made from it.

Felting is the process that turns woven fibers into a matted, condensed fabric we call felt.  The fibers can either be natural like wool, or synthetic like acrylic.  Felt is used in construction, art, crafts, clothing, personal accessories and home accessories.  Here are some of my favorite felt objects:

Felt hats are always a popular felt item and this purple/lavender one is particularly sporty! Ignore the fact that they call it a men’s hat.  I don’t know too many men who would wear it!  $34.49.


This Felt hat from Nordstrom is $38.00 also comes in black and taupe.


For a tote or handbag, felt is a lightweight but sturdy material.  I love this grey felt tote bag from Italy.  It’s not too large, 13 ¼” x 16” x 3 ½” not including the handles.  It is handmade and available in other colors.  $93.00.


Pack and Smooch makes felt covers for iPads, iPhones, and all kinds of laptops.  They are high quality and appealing. The tablet case pictured here is $94.00.  See the choices at https://www.etsy.com.


Lavievert makes a handmade gray felt 13” MacBook Air case for $10.99.


This Felt clog in pink looks comfy.  $59.00.


And of course there are cozy and fun felt slippers:

These English felt slippers for adults and kids are divine for the right person!

For kids:  $40.00

Felt makes a wonderful medium for crafts:

Felted Animal Studio makes all kinds of animal figurines for $45.00 – $65.00.  They also offer custom cat figurines for $40.00.


Felt items for the house:

Small felted bowls – A set of 3 is $32.00, each bowl is  3” x 3”.


Individual bowls are $18.00 each and are 3” x 3.5”.


I love using felt trivets because they are lightweight and indestructible

A 9” diameter trivet is $15.00.   There are eighteen colors to choose from or order a mixed set – a set of 4 trivets is $45.00.


This multi-colored felt trivet is 9” x 8.5” and $12.81. This site accepts custom orders.


I love this green felt placemat.  It also comes in grey.  It is 12.5” in diameter and $9.00.


These felt placemats are made from organic wool.  They are $42.00 each but the more you order the more she will discount. A set of four would be $150.00. They are all roughly 12” in diameter.  Each one is handmade so there might be a slight size variance.


I love this felt kitty planter.  It is $24.00.  It will hold a 2” pot.  It also comes in a puppy version and a red one with a white heart.  There are 28 colors to choose from.
