My Favorite Felting Tools

This is one of my favorite felting tools. A plastic oil drip tray with hard pool cover bubble wrap clipped on. Tray is a super surface for fulling, holds the water in place to keep your wool wet while working. 95cm x 65cm, Look at auto supply stores for them.

After posting this photo on facebook, we received all sorts of wonderful suggestions for other similar tools.  Here are a few of the comments:

Tanya Perry-Dunham I use a plastic,nubby boot tray! Which is about the size of oil pan you pictured and available for just a few dollars everywhere in America.

Pam Silva Black heavy duty boot trays from Walmart(in the rug section)also work really well for this and they have built in textured bottom for rubbing felt on. (usa)

Carol Jensen I use the plastic trays that are in the bottom of dog crates. They come in different sizes and can be found online on pet supply websites. Search for dog crate replacement tray. (usa)

Sensational Stripe & Colour Sequences for Fashion & Interiors Workshop

Creating Sensational Stripes and Colour Sequences for Fashion & Interiors is a 2, 2.5 or 3 day felting workshop by Nancy Ballesteros (Perth , Western Australia). Unravel the mystery of stripe sequences while taking your colour knowledge to the next level. Everyone loves a good stripe, but if you have ever tried to create one you realize it’s harder than it seems. We will design sensational stripes using guidelines based on the Fibonacci Sequence Principles (NO maths is involved!) as well as understanding how to apply relevant colour theory while enjoying hands-on colour play. Our final compositions in felt can have multiple applications from homewares to wearables or simply give yourself time to explore sampling.  Click here for scheduled workshops or inquiries to

Celebrating 30th Years of Colour!

How time flies when you are having fun! Treetops was only a vague dream 30 years ago. In 1987, disillusioned and uninspired with a budding career in geology, Nancy gave birth to the dream of making a living from her love of textiles. Now, 30 years later, one-step at a time, and a whole lot of perseverance, Treetops Colour Harmonies can be found around the world. Thank you to everyone for their love and support!. How lucky to put colour and happiness into the lives of others on a daily basis.
