We were delighted to find Diana - the talented artist who made this adorable puppet used in our daughter's music class. We were over the moon when she agreed to make an exact copy of the puppet AND send it to the USA bundled in another shipment to save on costs. The puppet is beautiful, it arrived very fast and Diana was absolutely lovely through the process. Highly recommend her work!!!

About

Handmade Felt Cuddles.

Some years ago I met the world of handmade felt, experiencing first needle felt and then wet felt. So, after a while I have been involved in the community of felt makers.

In 2012 I partecipated to "Feltrosa" the most important felt festival in Italy, where I could exhibit two artcraft: a lamp and a costume. The same year my "vestivaso" where chosen for Open Design Italia, an international exhibition in Venice.
In Feltrosa 2013 edition I developed an event to create six mandala felt carpets together with 60 feltmakers from all over Europe. It was great!

I really think felting is an extraordinary process. I have tried many different materials but felt is special because it so versatile and creative and also I think making felt is therapeutic in many ways.

In my etsy shop you can see some of my little creations. I like to make dolls, felt animals, and other creatures you will discover.

My desire is to work on custom orders. I would like to make hand puppets or dolls created for you or for your kids. It is always a real challenge for me and I am very happy to do it!

I pay lots of attention to the wool I use (mostly italian and european). I know where it cames from, how it is dyed and the company or the person has to show respect for the sheeps and for the environment.
