Featured Seller of the Day 10/17/2009

Today's featured seller of the day is knitter that makes beautiful felted pieces! Her shop is called:

Knit and Felted Goods From the Foot of Pikes Peak

Gretchen is a Colorado artist who draws her inspiration from the beauty of the mountains that surround her. Here is a perfect example:

Bird's Nest Felted Bowl

This beautifully simple knit bowl was felted into the simple form of a birds nest. The added detail of the felted eggs adds the perfect pop of color, but the best part is the felted yarn strands. They make the piece more organic and add touch of realism to the bowl.

This next piece seems to draw it's colors straight from the mountains themselves.

Purple Felted Drawstring Pouch - Small

This pouch is both useful and beautiful. It seems to steal it's heathered purple color directly from the rocky mountains. Think "purple mountain's majesty" is just a line from a song? Then you have never seen them in person!

And one last piece, to get you in the mood for fall.

Pumpkin Seeds Bowl No. 2

This lovely orange bowl is filled with felted pumpkin seeds, mimicking the inside of a hollowed out pumpkin. The pumpkin seeds are so realistic, that they look like you could reach in and pick them up! A perfect catch-all to give your home a touch of fall!

Tomorrow I will be featuring a two person Etsy team. ::Hint - They make very unique jewelry!::

  3. I love your felted bowls! You can almost feel the textural quality of the work - and your choice of colors is wonderful.

    A fellow Etsian,
