This felted creature is apparently called an oeufling, and they're what happens to lost Easter Eggs. If you're not buying it, take it up with everyeskimo; s/he makes them.
You remember how Justin Timberlake brought sexy back? Your mileage may vary on musical tastes, but we can all agree that was at least financially successful for Mr. Timberlake and, well, I'd like to take a stab at bringing something back, too.
Of course, the trouble with bringing something back is that not only is it subjective, but there are so many worthy candidates. Think about it; rack your brains for all the things you deeply and truly loved that aren't around/getting as much play as they deserve, and pick the one you think is most important. It's like Sophie's Choice: The Material Version.
So it was after some time spent deep in thought (meaning, about as long as it took to nuke a burrito in the microwave) that I decided there was only one true candidate for Being Brought Back: felt.
Now, before you start arguing, Internets, think about it; when was the last time you owned anything made out of felt? Wool, cotton, fleece, maybe even a few poly blends, but I'm willing to bet that felt isn't really represented in your wardrobe. I'll admit that it isn't in mine, and that's sad, because felt is an awesome fabric.
Don't believe me? Let me show my work.
First up, there's this darling carnation fascinator, which I think is pretty dang neat. I particularly like the way the lace was incorporated for added texture.
Confession Time: I am a sucker for cutwork stuff. So it probably comes as no surprise that I fell more than just a little for this felt headband.
I've said it before and I'll say it again; I never realized how much of a market there was out there for owl-themed head gear. Consider this owl fascinator as more added proof.
I like the "simple yet not really all that simple" construction of this fascinator. Yeah, it's just circles, but the layering of the circles is what makes it more complicated than previously thought.
And just because I like to contrast "simple" with "holy cheech, that had to take a while to make," here's a truly fabulous fascinator made of felt:
See? I told you it was fabulous.
Well, I believe that helped make my case for bringing felt back. And on that note, I'll see you next week!
