I have a soft spot for felt crafts, pun only intended a little. So of course when I discovered UK etsy shop Lupin from brilliant felt crafter Laura Howard, of course I got click happy.
The brooches are darling of course, but I really swooned over this abstract felt mobile made of 160 individually hand cut pieces of the fuzzy fabric. Well, they’re supposed to be abstract; but I see peacock features or mod olives or crazy pink eggs, sunny side up.
Each disc is two-sided, so each strand looks consistently beautiful as it dangles and sways in the spring breeze from a nearby open window.
It’s a lucky baby that gets to grow up daydreaming about these ethereal shapes. Who says that mobiles have to be figurative anyway? City kids no sooner know what a sheep or a duck is than a double helix strand. -Liz
