The hunt for the elusive light turquoise felt

January 26, 2012 at 10:29 am 4 comments

Apparently you can have too much of a good thing because I have finally exhausted all my local supplies of light turquoise felt. I’ve also contacted numerous felt factories and suppliers both here in Australia and overseas – and come up with nothing. So if you happen to be in a shop somewhere that happens to sell felt by the metre/yard and they happen to have something resembling light turquoise felt, please let me know. Otherwise, there’ll be no more whale cushions. And I have two people waiting for whale cushions with their fingers crossed…

    […] the finished cushion. It’s on some of the bright turquoise fabric I bought when I was on my epic hunt for the elusive light turquoise felt. While I initially thought I might go with eye-popping red lettering, I decided to go with navy in […]
