Crafty Wonderland Preview

Oh, just some stuff's I've been whipping up. The pictures aren't great... I just wanted to take some quick shots before I send them off to new homes (hopefully.)

(I am very good at self-shot portraits, obviously. But the top of the hat looks as you would imagine it should.)

The long-awaited sequel to my needle-felted squid hat. Octopus!

One time, I made a recycled sweater owl hat. The results were hilarious.

I actually really love this hat and will probably make more.

I'll honestly be surprised if this sells because it's so confusing when it's not on. But it's cute! I'm selling it with a plastic darning needle so people can relace the lace however they please.

Flattering :-P

I dyed this! It's cashmere and silk. Nomnomnomnom.

Sooo... one more time, that's the Doug Fir, on E Burnside, in the basement, Oct 11th, 11-4. It will be awesome. You don't even have to look at my booth, just come buy pretty goodies and make stuff at the DIY table. But if you DO look at my booth, feel free to bring cookies :-)

(A sidenote: The best booth-draw-er-inner ever award goes to Fly Designs at OFFF, for having FRESH BAKED WHITE CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES in their booth. They brought a little toaster oven and were baking 'em fresh all day. Nothing has ever smelled more delicious (at least, not in a barn.))


  1. Oh my goodness, that octopus hat is a thing of glory! *covets*

  2. I adore that octopus hat. I wish I could go to Crafty Wonderland.

  3. yay! octopus hat! make one in a child size and i will give you handspun yarn! (clearly you should make up tons more of those needle felt-y hats since we all seem to be helpless in their presence. surely TSA will let you take felting needles on the plane...just assure them you will limit your terrorist activities to animal fiber and crafty goodness...)

  4. I think I will start making more... I have to charge a bunch 'cause they take a long time, though, and that makes me sad kinda. Also I need a big leather glove so I don't stab myself through the finger again. But if your kiddo wants one I imagine a trade could be arranged.... ;-)

    (How the heck big are kid's heads, anyway? This is why I don't often make kid's heads- I'd have no idea what size to call it. People ask and I just say "Too small for adult"-sized.)

  5. I want those hair clips! They're awesome.

  6. You are so talented, miss alex! Just love that octopus hat!!

  7. That octopus hat is really something! I can imagine that it took sooper long!

  8. L-O-V-E-L-O-V-E-L-O-V-E the octopus hat.

    Looks like I'm not alone here . . .

  9. I tried to look up the octopus hat pattern, but couldn't find it. Is it for sale? It's amazing!

    1. Thank you :-) It's needlefelted, so unfortunately there's not really a good way to write a pattern for it (or if there is, I don't know it, haha.) Needlefelting is a lot like painting with wool, kinda just takes trial and error!
