Hello, my name is Jess Beeley and I make felt creations under the name bettyoctopus. After the birth of my daughter in 2009, I wanted a creative outlet, so began to use felt to make gifts for family and friends. The reaction was really positive and the idea of bettyoctopus was born. I opened my Etsy shop in January 2011 and started receiving commissions for custom orders on top of this. My work is cute, colourful and quirky, and always unique. I make regular contributions to Craftseller magazine.
Originally from Bristol, UK, I live in Limerick, Ireland with my husband, daughter, 2 cats and a massive felt stash.
