Aww, who could resist falling in love with this sleepy wee guy? This dreamy, creamy coloured Ted is made with soft 'n' snuggly acrylic yarn and wears an in-built stripy retro jumper which is pure wool.  He's got a soft flocked brown nose and lovely soulful glass disk eyes (as these are not safety/button style eyes, he'd be a great friend for a slightly older child or the young at heart). Meet Ted and his friends in the BaldMoose range on Felt now: https://baldmoose.felt.co.nz  #toys #crochet #crochettoy #teddybear #kiwicraftsmanship #nzhandmade #newzealand #aotearoa #feltnz #buynzmade #gifts
McChesney-Kelly Adams is new to Felt this fortnight, and we love her portrait of the great Carrie Fisher as Princess Leia. Doesn't it just capture her strength of character perfectly?  This original drawing is done in watercolour, graphite pencil and ink pen on textured paper, and is available now on Felt: mkaartist.felt.co.nz  #starwars #princessleia #fanart #scifiart #originalart #nzartist #nzart #newzealand #aotearoa #feltnz #freshonfelt #buynzmade
As we become more and more mindful of our plastic use, it's great to see solutions like these turning up to help us cut out the single use plastic!  Beeswax-soaked fabric is a food and drink covering method that goes back to medieval times, and it's extremely effective. Just warm the wrap in your hands slightly if it's a cold day and then smooth it over the container you're covering, using its natural stickiness to adhere it firmly to the sides. If you want to make it super-secure you can add a cord around the outside, but for home use the wrap alone will stay in place just fine. You can also use them as sandwich wraps, as they stick to themselves very well. Cleaning's a doddle too - wipe with warm (not hot) water and a wee bit of dishsoap if you think it needs it.  These lovelies are by Mind Your Beezwax: https://felt.co.nz/listing/371883/  #beeswaxwraps #plasticfreejuly #ditchtheplastic #plasticfreesolutions #homeandliving #ecoliving #nzhandmade #newzealand #aotearoa #feltnz #finditonfelt #buynzmade
"I love wood! But mainly recycled and reclaimed wood. That’s because I also love trees and I don't like to see them being chopped down! I am also rather fond of the old school chisel. In fact, I think I might have a chisel problem as the last count had 180 hanging from the wall around the workshop!"

In winter, it's very obvious that many New Zealand homes are not built to keep the heat in well. If you notice heat escaping under your doors a draught excluder can be a simple and economical way to make a big difference. We love this simple and stylish draught excluder from White Circle, in striped navy and natural pure linen, with a heavyweight filling to effectively block out the cold and keep your home cosy.  Check it out on Felt now: https://felt.co.nz/listing/372363  #winter #warmhome #cosyhome #draughtexcluder #linen #nzhandmade #newzealand #aotearoa #feltnz #finditonfelt #buynzmade
"I think buying things that are made locally is more important now than ever before, we need to support the people in the community around us and buck the trend of cheap mass production on the other side of the world. Items that are handmade have depth, character and tell a story that large scale production can’t replicate."

"I think my main philosophy is to try and create items that stand the test of time whilst having as small an impact as possible. We seem to have moved into a disposable world where items aren't expected to have a long life span and usually end up as landfill. I really want to step away from that mentality. I love giving wood a new life after many years of service as a church beam and making an item that will be treasured for another lifetime."

Rosa of Dean's Workshop is a mama, illustrator and second-generation woodworker. She says: "I have a Steiner background so naturally wanted my son to have wholesome toys that encourage imaginative play. Once I made him a couple of wooden toys, I was hooked. All toys are made with untreated timber and painted in non-toxic, kid safe colours." Awesome!

Joe Wright of Bearwood Workshop handcrafts his beautiful wooden homewares and sculpture – all made from sustainable and recycled New Zealand native timber – from a little tractor shed in Glendhu Bay overlooking Lake Wanaka. After years of working as a designer in many different disciplines, running his own consultancy and clocking up the air miles with large corporations as clients, he decided to shed it all and go back to his roots. His days are now spent following his passion: designing and making simple, beautiful, sustainable items that will stand the test of time.

There's nothing like the snuggle-factor of pure vintage New Zealand wool in winter, and it's also the perfect thing to keep hot water bottles safely covered for the kids - or you! Felt maker Adventures of Alex O & Co has a truly gorgeous range of hottie covers decorated with all sorts of cute characters (and equally snuggly and cute cushion covers too!) so we reckon they're the perfect way to stay cosy until the end of the colder months. :-) #staycosy #hotwaterbottlecovers #hotwaterbottles #purenzwool #purewool #wool #winter #winterwarmers #nzhandmade #newzealand #aotearoa #feltnz #buynzmade #retailtherapy #gifts
