One of the best stores i've come across yet. Looks even better in person. I love it and will be buying more!

Just received my order today, he is so beautiful! Stitching is really tight and overall the quality is great. He is sitting on my shelf in my study and watching me - he might just be my next muse! nthank you, love it!


Just got to make!

The forest flaw started out with scrap materials. I had to create to escape.
Unable to paint or draw due to space limitations, my sewing career began!
Soon the sewing took over the house and so I gave in to the no space idea and took up my pencils again.
My shop is a hybrid. A little bit crafty, a little bit quirky, a little bit serious. But all fun.
I'll try anything - and as such, you'll see it listed here!

'The Forest Flaw' was created from my love of all things 'foresty'. I am also attracted to things that are a little off kilter, kooky, quirky and even a little bit wrong. My animals are all tightly hand sewn with a slight vintage feel - buttons, felt and quality materials.
This place is for animals from the 'other' forest; it's where teatOWLs hoot in the trees, RAGbits frolic on the grass, fOCKS hide in their den, WOOLves howl at the moon and PARTridges hang out in the pear trees. When more animals emerge from hiding, they will be featured in the Forest Flaw.
