The needle felted blueberry child is a wonderful addition to my needle felt collection. It is truly a needle felted piece of art.

mothering inspired my business
I began hand crafting toys for my daughters over twelve years ago and I enjoy creating handcrafted toys made with eco-friendly natural materials. I love creating open ended toys that fill my children's time with creativity and allow them to immerse themselves in imaginary worlds. I want my children to have safe toys created with natural materials and use only those same high quality materials when constructing toys for clients as well.
My inspiration and ideas come from all around me. One of my daughters might suggest an idea or I might see a wonderful illustration in one of the books we're reading. Sometimes I just look at the wool and see the object that it can become. Our daily life is filled with creative play, artistic expression, gardening, cooking, and lots of learning through living.
I create needle felted toys and ornaments made with cruelty-free wool that I source primarily from local Wisconsin farmers. I buy raw fleece and then wash, card, and dye the wool myself using food grade dyes.
I also create sewn toys, crowns, and needle books made with 100% wool felt.
Sewing, felting, and shipping occur Monday through Friday. The shop is closed on Sunday.

It's extremely rare that packages are lost or damaged, but if it would happen to your package simply assist us in completing the necessary claims paperwork and provide us with photographs of the damage and you will receive a refund.
Why do the colors of my product seem different than the image on my computer screen?
Monitors have a wide variety of settings. Different monitors will have slightly different contrast and color ratios settings. Therefore, the colors each individual customer sees on his or her computer screen may not 100% accurately reflect the colors of our felt fabrics or dyed wool as they actually are.
