The quality was amazing!! Hand made, and you can definitely see that is was made with love and care. I reached out to her in order to commission some things and she was super sweet, and helped me decide with lots of patience and care.

I got this for a friend for Christmas and she loved it so much! I was really happy with the buying process as well, the shop made sure I knew when it would be shipped it and even upgraded my shipping so it would arrive before Christmas.

This custom GIR is even better than I ever imagined!!!! I absolutely love it and it fits perfectly in my son's nursery. Working with Jeanne was super easy and she kept me updated through the whole process. We will definitely be ordering from this shop in the future.

OMG. He is big, beautiful, and perfectly knitted. My 2 year old daughter is obsessed by nautiluses, so when she opens this Christmas morning, she is going to LOSE HER MIND. This seller was absolutely delightful to work with and the quality is incredible. Thank you so much!!! You made Christmas for Clem.
But are there cookies?
I was not naturally crafty. My mom didn't cook or sew or knit or scrapbook or anything that you'd find at Joann Fabrics. I don't think that I realized brownies could be made without buying the Duncan Hines box until I was a teenager. However, somewhere deep down I did feel vaguely creative though and it came out in awful teenage poetry and then pretty decent photography.
Eventually, I was a soulless drone working for the man and living in Brooklyn and feeling vaguely unsure of what I was doing with my life like every 20-something feels. Somewhere during that time, my mother-in-law came to visit and decided to teach me how to knit. I started a burgundy scarf that day and I didn't finish it for about two years. I was not a natural talent. I made some truly hideous sweat bands after that and discovered that no matter what yarn I bought from a store or how beautiful I thought that it looked while I was there, it was always pea green when I got home.
Then one day I made a toy. I made a knitted penguin and my spouse looked at me, shocked, because it was adorable and that was a pretty big surprise to both of us. After that, I wanted to make more and more toys but I found knitting to be an awkward and finicky medium so I found that YouTube was full of more than just cute kittens and learned to crochet. I found the amazing book Creepy Cute Crochet by Cristen Haden and realized that toys could be weird and geeky. I started the slow march to inspiration.
Now, I'm in my 30's, living on a tiny but beautiful little piece of the planet where I sometimes can hear cows from my living room and am embracing my love of toymaking. I hope that you love the geeky and strange and adorably offbeat toys that I make as much as I love making them.
