Jill Nuckles, founder of Little Felt Factory, creates whimsical keepsakes, purses, ornaments and giftware. Each piece is unique and makes the perfect gift to put a smile on someone’s face! She also makes felting kits that contain all the instructions and materials you need to make your very own felted piece.
