Flower Power

Last year, I started a flower pin business called Felt Happy. It was created by my desire to recycle vintage wool sweaters. Over the years, I had collected sweaters that were accidentally shrunk in the wash (according to my husband), missing a few buttons or just worn from wear. I did a little research on felting (shrinking wool to a more dense fiber) and Felt Happy was born. To my surprise, these Felt Happy flower pins have really started selling...mostly, in the store because I have not mastered the art of marketing on Etsy yet. Who knew that a little flower pin would become so popular!
