“The best tutorial ever, I didn’t want it to finish. Was almost like I was sitting with Magi in her garden listening to the surroundings and life going on - thanks so much for the tips and tricks.”
-Caroline P., New Zealand (Whimsy Houses Tutorial)
“I simply cannot say enough about my experience with Magi. I contacted her about a custom order and the process could not have gone more smoothly. Her communication was great (sending progress photos along the way) and the resulting product was more than what I had hoped for. Magi is extremely talented. Her attention to detail is top notch. But most importantly, she truly cares about making her customers happy. I look forward to working with Magi again in the near future. Probably the best experience I’ve had on Etsy.
Thank you, Magi!!”

“I feel so lucky to have found Magi's work when I stumbled upon it on Instagram. She was totally on board with my vision for felted worms and totally nailed this commission/custom work. Lowly and Slimey are so much larger than I thought they'd be and are super quality. They honestly could be props for film or tv. It's uncanny how great she is at recreating the details and capturing the spirit of animated characters. I'm in love with feltwork now — but especially hers.”

felting/fiber Book reviews
If you’ve ever wondered about how to wash locks in order to preserve the lock structure without ending up with a clump stuck together and frizzy ends after pulling them apart, read this post!
This post is a follow-up to my previous post on stovetop immersion dyeing. This method is great for someone who does not feel comfortable using dyes in the kitchen, or is unable to keep a close eye on their dye-pot, or wants to avoid the smell of dyeing (yeah, there’s a smell).
If you enjoy processing your own fleece, or are interested in doing so, read this review.
The first fleece in the Livestock Convervancy’s fleece passport, and listed critical on the conservation status, is this American landrace breed.
Since I’ve been playing around with various fleeces for over a year now, I decided to write a series of posts on the various ones I’ve tested out. A bit about the sheep, the fleece, how it takes dye, and how it felts. This one is on Racka.
