From a psychologist's perspective, I know how important imaginary play is for child development. From my experience as a mom, I know how important quality is when I'm shopping for things for my daughter. I don't sell anything I wouldn't buy for her!

I grew up surrounded by handmade toys--wooden rocking horses, crochet purses to carry my tiny treasures, handmade doll and barbie clothes, fishing sets, you name it! When my daughter was born, I realized I wanted the same quality and made-with-love toys for her. These days her kitchen is well stocked and dolls well dressed, but I keep sewing! Every child should be surrounded by quality, handmade goodness to encourage their imagination. As I sew, I'm always happily thinking about the countless hours children are going to spend dressing their dolls. I have a great job!

I have 2 other shops:
Necessary Cuteness (baby shoes, dresses, gifts, etc.):

Felt Food Kids (felt food toys):
