gill pinkney’s charming felt creations

You can’t help but smile when you see Gill Pinkney’s handiwork. Colorful, quirky, and brimming with charm, her lovingly crafted wonders are made from wool, felt, buttons, beads, and a fanciful imagination.

Gill’s a wet felt artist and designer based in Whitley Bay, a seaside town on the northeast coast of England. She makes a variety of products, including jewelry, wall hangings, bags, scarves, framed pictures, dolls, and seasonal ornaments.

Her birds, bunnies and grinning cats are adorable, while her fairies and mermaids are lovely and whimsical.

I also love her landscapes and seascapes. What gorgeous colors, lines and textures! Who can resist her rows of tidy houses, her flowers, her trees? Her hand embroidered finishing details are exquisite, too. Such a distinctive style. 🙂

So beautiful!

Gill’s work can be found in several galleries in Northumberland, Newcastle and Yorkshire, and she also exhibits in various craft fairs and other events in Northeast England.

Her work can also be purchased online via her Etsy Shop. The best way to learn about new pieces is to follow her Facebook page or Instagram.

  1. Oh, I just adore felting, for whatever reason. The sheer fuzziness of the items just make them something you want to hold. And these aren’t expensive, so it’s giving me fewer excuses to learn how to do this myself! Oh, dear…!

  2. Wow, what an artist. I would love to make things at her level, what a wonderful gift she has. I have started needle felting this year and so far I can only master round shapes but I am having fun learning and experimenting. Always love reading your Tuesday posts…thank you.
