Hello! I’m Jess Beeley, a crafter living slap-bang in the middle of Limerick city, Ireland. My head is constantly fizzing with ideas for new ways to make crafty goodness. I get really excited about working on new projects and nothing makes me happier than working with felt!
bettyoctopus was born back in 2009 and has evolved in way I never imagined. I have made everything imaginable from felt – accessories, jewellery, artwork and even clocks.
In 2016 I turned my hand to enamel pin design and now I’m addicted! I set up a successful Kickstarter campaign for my first pins which are available in my Etsy shop.
My patterns and designs have been featured in Craftseller, Handmade Christmas and Handmade Home magazines, and my work was profiled in The Irish Times.
