I am Charlize, I live in Cape Town, South Africa.
I make one of a kind (OOAK) needle felted alpaca's and other animals. I bought my first felting kit in 2011. In 2016 we visited a alpaca farm and I just fell in love with these fluffy creatures! There I bought myself some raw alpaca fleece, got home, washed it, hand carded it and started felting my very first alpaca.
Besides alpaca’s, I also love making teddy bears: I either needle felt them or I use mohair, sometimes I even combine the two. There is just something very special about using natural fibers.
As you get to know me, you will see that I will try just about anything when it comes to arts and crafts. I have a motto, and I hope to inspire you to live by this motto as well: If someone else can do it, then so can I!
I try not to limit myself by thinking “I will not be able to do it” or “I am not talented enough.”I believe that if you put your mind to it, you can do anything and succeed.
So, start this new journey with me…join my mailing list, you will not regret it!!!
