Caterpillar Peacock

Today Lindsey of Caterpillar Peacock ( and is riding the "Crazy Marketing Train" on  Lindsey makes teeny tiny felted hats and very unique felted jewelry.  She is a self described "big weirdo" who's funny, ironic, and off kilter.  That probably explains why she makes those adorable little hats!  First she crochets them, then machine felts them until they're just the right texture, then she blocks them into shape.  She makes berets, fedoras, top hats, all sorts of different hats, as well as beautiful felted jewelry.  Right now she's working on plant inspired projects for spring.  Check out her ivy and vine necklaces and her Calla Lily pin.  They're just perfect for Easter.  Lindsey is inspired by color, nature, comic books, and things from the 50's to the 70's.  She's been crocheting since her mother taught her at the age of 8.  Obviously she's perfected her technique.  Like myself, Lindsey is an artist who simply MUST create.  I certainly understand that creative drive!  Her favorite craft books are the 30+ Creative Hands series from the 70's, which I think is pretty appropriate.  She certainly does have creative hands!
