Some Little Shabby Felted Books

Thought I might share some new little felted books
I have been creating.
The first two have been ordered by two separate

This one -

and this one for the second Karen

I also have an extra felted and collaged book for sale
if anyone is interested.

This book is made using an image from Dawn at

Dawn has some of the most beautiful images for free
download to use in your projects - thank you again for sharing
these with us!

This little booklet measuring 6.5" x 9.5" has been embellished
with several layers of lace, new and vintage, French applique,

guipure lace, lace motifs, chiffon and buttons.

and, naturally some recycled and pin-tucked cotton.

Each page has been embellished with laces, tuile and trims.

It could be used as a keepsake for those favourite fabric samples,
precious broches, pins and needles or anything you
treasure enough to keep in it -
even special thoughts and sayings!
such as this one

Contact me by email at
if you are interested.

  25. Hi,Suzy
    Thank you for stopping by my blog~

  26. I've been sitting here enjoying reading your last few posts that I hadn't read yet Suzy, and first I have to tell you that the picture of your Sally Holmes rose made my mouth gape open. That is amazing! I have got to see if that rose will grow here. I don't think it will, but I will research it, because it is beautiful.
    And speaking of beautiful!!! Your felted books for the Karen's are stunning. All of your work is, and how I wish I could do fabric collage as beautifully.
    I see you received so many lovely gifts for Christmas. The doll that Dorthe sent is such a pretty girl. What a long way she had to travel...but I imagine she is so happy to be living with you now :)
    It is always a gift to be able to come by and be inspired by you dear Suzy.
    Have a lovely week my sweet friend.
    hugs from here...

  31. Suzy- when I look at your sweet creations- I can't help but think that you must have the most magnificent studio or craft room. Have you ever shared those photos-- I'd love to take a peek into your special space--
