my fabric store now carries ecospun felt. it's made from 100% post-consumer recycled plastic bottles. i was drawn to the mossy green, so bought a few squares to try. it's more stiff than other types of felt, but not horridly so. i made a batch of various gnomies with some, & found that i like it less than wool, but vastly better than the poly variety.
i looked into the box of gnomes & discovered this group quietly discussing something, & waiting for the remainder of their fellowship to arrive.
whilst they were not paying attention, this little guy ran off with their ring. isn't he precious? i crack me up.
ps ~ happy birthday pom!
