Here are a few of our favorite floral shades to get you in the spirit.

Felt Friday – Color of the Year(ish) Edition

10 Jan

Every year Pantone selects a color of the year, a color they expect to influence everything from art to home decor in the coming year.

This years selection is…18-3224 Radiant Orchid.

Every year  American Felt and Craft selects the felt color most closely matching the Pantone color of the year.

This year was a toughie.

Orchid Inspired Felt Colors

Left to right: Forget me not, Orchid, Lavender, Sweet Pea felt sheets.

After staring at our selection of purples for a while I have come to the conclusion Radiant Orchid is a combo of all of these shades.

So we will call this a “Color of the year – Inspired Felt Friday”

Which color do you think most invokes the Color of the Year?

Lavender and Forget Me Not felt sheets From American Felt and Craft

Forget me not and Lavender felt sheets from American Felt and Craft.

Radiant Orchid is  “An enchanting harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones, Radiant Orchid inspires confidence and emanates great joy, love and health. It is a captivating purple, one that draws you in with its beguiling charm.” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®.”

Forget Me Not Felt Sheets from American Felt and Craft

Forget Me Not – a deep toned lavender blue felt reminiscent of forget me nots and hydrangeas in bloom.

“This multifaceted hue is seductive when combined with red and pairs well with its sister shades of lavender, purple and pink.” -Pantone

Lavender Felt Sheets From American Felt and Craft

Lavender – a lovely pale purple felt.

” Radiant Orchid re-energizes almost any color palette and provides a unifying element for diverse spaces.” – Pantone

Sweet Pea Colored Felt Sheets from American Felt and Craft

Sweet Pea – Somewhere between purple and pink

“(Radiant Orchid is…) a dazzling attention-getter” – Pantone

Felt Friday- Goodbye Fall

22 Nov

Next week is Thanksgiving week here in the United States and that means the official send off of fall and welcome to winter. But before we move on the jubilant colors of winter and the Christmas season grab a warm mug of something wonderful and lets stop and take a fond look back at the colors of Fall.

If you’ve never experienced the phenomenon known as leaf peeping it’s worth a spot on your bucket list. Truly one of the most beautiful sights in all of nature.

It’s easy to get lost in the reds, auburns, shades of yellow and cream but perhaps the most surprising are the deep blues and blacks.  If only all veggies were this colorful.

Happy Felt Friday!  DUN DUN DUN DUN – DUN DUN DUN DUN…DUN!

Ok admittedly the Jaws theme doesn’t work through text but please hum it silently to yourself as you read the following for the full effect.

 This week I thought I would pay homage to the The Discovery Channel’s Shark Week. If you aren’t familiar Shark week – It is only  the longest-running cable television programming event in history and broadcast in over 72 countries,  Plus it has sharks so it’s pretty much just sheer awesome. So enjoy shark week American Felt and Craft style. *brace yourself for simulated felt violence.

Here you are enjoying your Summer Vacation.

Felt Friday – Easter Eye Candy

15 Mar

One of the best things about Easter time is all the amazing colors!

Christmas, Halloween, 4th of July and Valentines Day all have 2 – maybe 3 colors associated with them. But not Easter- it throws the entire color palette at you.Blues, pinks, purples and greens – everywhere you look color pops out to remind you warmer days have arrived.  

Easter Candy is a great example of this  – no other holiday could present a sweeter palette. This felt Friday celebrate your spring sweet tooth with Easter candy inspired felt palettes.
