This baby giraffe soft sculpture is so sweet. If you look closely you can see the curious expression left on his adorable face! I’m in awe over the attention to detail and exquisite craftsmanship on something this small!

Handmade needle felted animals

I work on my needle felted animals from my home in Utrecht, the Netherlands. I started needle felting in 2010 and loved it from the first animal I made: a small orange cat with big, bright eyes.

That first cat was quickly followed by many other miniature animals with big and bright eyes! Nowadays, I greatly enjoy creating felt dogs. Why? Because they all have such different shapes, colors and fur!

Other than felting I also enjoy figure skating, sewing, traveling and reading. That list could be much longer, but I simply never have enough free time (I also work a full time job in e-commerce).

Selling on Etsy has opened up an entire new world to me. My favorite part is getting to send my miniature felt animals to places all over the world. Places I myself have never been!

I also love the friendly and creative community on Etsy. Feel free to message me any time. Comments, questions, requests and ideas are all more than welcome.

Thank you for stopping by!

Care instructions

Needle felted items are not intended as toys for small children or pets. You can pick them up and hold them in your hand as much as you like, juist treat them carefully. This way you will enjoy them for years.

International customers and deadlines

I love selling to customers all over the world, but please keep the following in mind:

All orders are shipped from THE NETHERLANDS, Europe, and thus wil take longer to arrive to USA and other destinations outside of EU. If you need an item as a gift or for a special occation, make sure you order at least 6 weeks ahead to be safe.
