Felted wool bowls full of love. Or better, jewelry for Mother’s Day.

I bought a few felted wool bowls a long time ago and while they seemed a bit of a frivolous purchase at the time, they turned out to be really useful. They sat on my dresser to catch all my rings, dainty bracelets, and tiny necklaces just perfectly–that is, until my mom liked them enough to take them home with her. So upon discovering these custom felted bowls at The Felterie on Etsy, I decided was a sign for me to add some new ones back into my home decor mix, especially considering how much I use them.  ...

It’s booties season, baby

Just because I don’t have a baby anymore doesn’t mean I can’t drool over cute felt booties like these handmade beauties. Each pair of these adorable baby booties is made by hand, using felt and soft wool to keep those sweet little toes warm all winter long. It’s tough to pick favorites from the vast collection, but I have to say, I’m in love with the slightly unfinished feel of the applique and seam stitching on all of them. Moms of boys: I’m definitely seeing more girl-ish options, but that’s the beauty of Etsy. Just convo the artisan and see...

There you are, planning a nice simple kid’s birthday party, and bam! Suddenly your best laid plans to keep everything simple go haywire and you’ve reached wedding planning levels of crazy. Gearing up for my 4-year-old’s birthday party this year, I was determined to keep things as handmade and low(ish) budget as possible. After a bit of Internet hunting I found a fun party helper that will definitely add to the festivities–and the photos–with a minimum of fuss.  We settled on a Scooby Doo theme–my kid’s major obsession. While searching Etsy for Scooby artifacts, I discovered these cool handmade felt...

Taste the rainbow of adorable felt play food. But don’t really taste it.

If you love showering your children with all-natural goodness in a rainbow of colors, you’ll love this veritable smorgasbord of vibrant veggies, scrumptuous sushi, and fruit fit for a king. Just don’t let them eat it. Because it’s all handmade felt food. And felt on your tongue feels pretty gnarly. We’re salivating over the colorful array of beautiful felt play food from Creation by M on Etsy… which is kind of weird, because we do know it’s not real. Each piece of play food is lovingly hand-stitched of eco-felt, which is made from 100% recycled plastic bottles. And many...
