When we saw this felted wool cactus in a tiny pot, you could've knocked us over with a feather. What a perfect piece of kitsch for any space. On a stack of books on the coffee table? On a bedstand? For anyone with the opposite of a green thumb? And then we continued to fall in love with even more felted home accessories from this Etsy seller...

Here's what Etsy seller Cheryl Patterson has to say about her fantastic felt creations at FeltSewGood :

I make one of a kind felted wool handbags, accessories and plush toys. Most items are made from eco-friendly recycled wool sweaters. The sweaters have been felted, cut apart and sewn into soft and durable accents for yourself and your home.

Her felted wool accessories, purses, and plush toys and pillows range from around $14-$54 and there's even a Facebook fan page for sneak peaks at forthcoming designs.

We're just hoping there are more cacti in the future.
