BTRT Patterns (on Etsy)

Thursday, 1 May 2008
It is my pleasure to introduce you to The Felted Sheep. The Felted Sheep is the shop front for
Kelsey, a wahm of one son whose birth lead his mother into a love affair with wool!

Since Corbin’s birth, Kelsey has discover cloth diapering and then wool, which she now spins,
knits, dyes and felts for herself and for others. She loves the beauty and versatility of the fiber ~
and having fallen head over heels myself in the last little while, I totally understand! Kelsey creates lovely bags, totes and purses as well as scarves and other wearables. She also sells roving and yarn which she has dyed in gorgeous colorways.

Kelsey was inspired by the many talented WAHMs on Hyena Cart to start her own business and
develop her talents with confidence. This confidence received a boost recently through
participation in a local fiber festival.

Being a WAHM (work at home mom) gives her the flexibility to pursue her creative urges on her
own schedule and that of her family, which Kelsey truly enjoys. Like many artists she is still
challenged by the business aspects, particularly pricing and earning a wage consistent with a
living and the work put into her art.

The Felted Sheep benefits from Kelsey’s strong desire to develop her skills and learn new ones.
She loves her faithful spinning wheel but plans to tackle the drop spindle this summer and work
more on her wet felting technique.

A busy mom needs to dream, and when asked where she would love to travel, Kelsey notes that
she is drawn to Europe~ the art, history, age and the landscapes themselves.

Please take some time to visit The Felted Sheep on Hyena Cart and Etsy.
