Announcement   Welcome to Babes in the Woods. I design and make handmade nursery decor and kids accessories inspired by nature. I use natural materials wherever possible such as lovely 100% wool felt, wood and pure cotton. Because the felt is made from pure wool, it won't fray or lose shape over time and the colours stay vibrant. Pure wool felt is also naturally stain-resistant and both soft and strong. I only use new materials in my products which meet European EN71 safety requirements for children's toys. I hand cut and sew every piece in a pet- and smoke-free home.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or would like a custom made item.

Cheers,
Emily.

About

The birth of Babes in the Woods

Naturally enough, I started designing and making nursery decor when my first daughter was born. I was living in Norway at the time and was inspired by the woodlands close to home, which were so different and new to me compared to the bushland of Australia. I had also been spending time in a beautiful little family cabin which had been decorated with traditional Norwegian 'rosemaling', a folk art featuring intricate floral designs with swirling patterns and the colours of the surrounding forest. I wanted to bring the natural forest tones, the browns, greens and grays into my daughters nursery, as well the European woodland creatures that I had read about in fairy tales as a child. They were now a normal part of life and made regular appearances in the back garden and nearby parks. Babes in the Woods grew from there as friends saw the nursery and asked if I could make pieces for them too.

I launched Babes in the Woods on Etsy after my second daughter was born and shortly after moving back home to Australia. It has grown to include various colour palettes such as the bright rainbow colours I grew up with in the 80's as well as soft pastels and glittering golds. My product line is growing as my skill level and taste evolves and I continue to experiment with new types of products. I hope you enjoy my products as much as I enjoy making them!
