About feltitnyc

I am a SAHM of one 4-year-old daughter and an inner city high school teacher currently on child care leave. I have always loved to make things, even as a small child. I have especially loved working with fibers and textiles. For many years, cross-stitch was a pastime that I enjoyed. When I moved to NYC, my students learned how to crochet in an after school program and I became fascinated by the range of fibers that were available. I am just learning how to crochet now. At the time, I had chosen to take up knitting rather than crochet and was able to teach many of those same students the art of knitting. That process took on a entirely new perspective when a couple of the students wished to learn how to sew. It renewed my passion for sewing that I had originally inherited from my mother, the quilter. The tissue cozies began as graduation gifts for my students to take to college. Something that I had handmade with a specific meaningful image for each student. The students and parents liked them so much that I was encouraged to extend the project. So, here I am... experimenting, stitching, and creating new designs, structures, and crafts for myself, for my friends and family, and now for others through my etsy shop.

TAD #2: Tree with Leaves on Pink Baby Bodysuit

I love to stitch the trees.  They never come out the same and get me in the right frame of mind to prepare for spring.   http://www.etsy.com/listing/92062184/tree-on-hot-pink-on-short-sleeve-light
