About

Flederhaus is a one-person project. I've learned most of my crafting skills by hashing things out through trial and error. Like pretty much everyone on Etsy, I've been making things since I was little, when my mom had shelves of craft supplies in the basement ready for pillage. The idea for almost everything I make for sale originated with my love for my family and friends, for whom I insist on making gifts by hand. If something turns out especially well, I want to spread the love!

Instead of a military draft, everyone should be required to do three things for six months each: work retail, wait tables, and work with their hands. Pretty much every problem in the whole entire world is rooted in simple miscommunication.

Translated from German, Flederhaus means "flying house" - a play on the German word for bat, which is "fledermaus"…

Translated from German, Flederhaus means "flying house" - a play on the German word for bat, which is "fledermaus" (flying mouse). I like the idea of a home that can go everywhere with you.
