Happiness is Making Squishable Baby Wool!

I must say, I love dyeing and sewing the stuff.  It makes me happy.

I was just finishing my Newsletter appreciation giveaway prize today – thinking – man, if I could just bath myself in this bamboo – I would.  Haha!  It’s so squishy soft.

In all seriousness, I really love to make a good product that other people like.  It really does make me happy.  I just wanted to take this opportunity to share some of my happiness with you.

This is some of the wool/bamboo that I have made and given away over the summer.

Now, I am happily concocting a grand giveaway for my 1 year blog-o-versary in February 2014!  Do you have any ideas on what I should giveaway?  Should it be wool?  Or should it be something else?  A sheepskin good for those ECers out there?  A wrap or sling?  What do you think?

  1. you made all those???? you are pretty talented Lisa…wow…I wish I could be that talented. I’d turn it into a brown ball.

    • Hey Karen,

      I am sure it wouldn’t turn into a brown ball. It’s just where your interests lie, you know? If you have no interest, why even bother doing it? It’s a waste of time and energy. Put time elsewhere, like organizing. I’m totally defunct at organizing and wish i could be more organized.

      I don’t have time to be organized. Hahaa!

      Thanks for stopping by and for your comments!

  3. Wait..I knew you hand dyed. But did you say you make the fabric? I want to touch it. It looks so buttery soft! Does it have a lot of stretch?!

    I’d say do a bundle of fabric for the giveaway…you know me! I’m a textile lover!

    • Nah. No fabric making for me – although that would be awesome. I couldn’t even imagine what I would need to knit my own wool. That would be major coolness though.

      The fabric does have stretch – but it’s not the annoying knit type of stretch. I can work with it easily. The stretch really helps with longevity – you know.

      Plus, the wool is all felted up – which helps in the sewing stretchy fabrics department. 🙂

      Thanks so much for stopping by, AMY!

  4. So CUTE! Wow, such talent!

    Perhaps you could do a nursing cover for world breast feed week (for next year). Or how about a matching “something” for mommy and baby / mommy and daughter?
