New Designs – Bunny in a Box and Bear in a Box – Altoids Smalls toys

Inspired by the matchbox mice so very popular in the UK and Larissa Holland’s Wee Mouse Tin House I’ve designed these two new toy sets – the Bunny in a Box and the Bear in a Box.  These miniatures come housed in Altoids Smalls candy tins and measure about 2″ tall.

I have them available as custom listings which means that you can choose the colors you want and I’ll sew up a set especially for you!

I’ll also be trying to keep completed sets in stock so if you’re in a hurry you can just buy a finished set and I’ll have it the mail to you within 2 business days.

some more of my recent work

DSC03148  DSC03161DSC03138DSC03143 DSC03128 DSC03122

 

The Wee Kitty Cat Tin House set was for the winner of the YellowBlissRoad.com giveaway.  I love her color choices!  The cat is done in the lilac felt.

 

The bottom two sets were also a custom request.  The customer wanted the Tomten and Fox set made smaller and into ornaments and also requested a fawn ornament.  Her daughter had helped care for an injured fawn that year and wanted an ornament to help remember the event.

 

The other pics show some of my most popular Christmas ornaments – the Santas, gnomes, and snowmen that I work on a LOT this time of the year!

The Wee Kitty Cat Tin House is another design influenced greatly by Larissa Holland’s Wee Mouse Tin House design.  Larissa has graciously granted permission to offer these sets.  Right now I only have templates in the cream and black felt, but as you can see from my felt sample charts, a rainbow of options are available to us.

The fox in a box set is probably one of my favorite sets to sew up.  I love these little guys!  Like my other Wee Animal sets there is the main toy – a fox in this set – a tiny teddy bear, a pillow, a blanket, a mattress pad and the Altoids tin.  They are fabulous purse toys.  Just pop it in your bag and pull it out when your child needs a distraction.

One of my first spin-offs of the Wee Mouse Tin House by Larissa Holland was this Wee Bunny Tin House.  I altered the pattern a bit more from the alterations I had already made on my version of the Wee Mouse.  It still includes a tiny teddy bear and the bedding (pillow, blanket, mattress pad).  They come a variety of bedding colors.  The most commonly requested teddy colors are wheat and copper.  The most commonly requested bunny colors are white and cream.  Like the Wee Mouse Tin House, these are also made in 100% wool felt and stuffed with unspun wool.

For some time now I’ve been making my own version of Larissa Holland’s Wee Mouse Tin House.  I love Larissa’s patterns, but since I prefer hand sewing and working in 100% wool felt it was necessary to alter her pattern just a smidge to fit my preferences.  Here are some examples of my Wee Mice!

These gnome ornaments have been one of my most popular items for several years now.  They come in a wide range of colors and I can even customize them.  Some customers have requested hair colors and eye colors to match members of their families and others have had me add initials to the gnomes’ outfits to indicate which gnome represented which family member.  I’ve done couples, individuals, and entire families!
