It Felt So Convenient

Everything you see in this photo (excepting the lady-Lucy Sparrow) was made from felt! The candy bars, the gum, the beer the newspaper, are all stitched up with wooly felt.
Welcome to Lucy Sparrow’s pop-up convenience store!

There are also felt biscuits, felt tv dinners, felt magazines, a selection of felt fruits and veg, even a felt cash register.  Even this is felt ↓

You can buy anything from the shop, just like a regular corner store but you’ll have to go to  London to do so.
I love this project! You can read about it in The Guardian (which is where I found these photos by Rosie Hallam/Barcroft Media) or watch a very entertaining short video abut it HERE.

The Knit Cafe has an upcoming felt-making workshop, so you can start your own corner store.  Our felt class is not applique and hand stitching like Ms Sparrows work.  It is Needle Felting!!
