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.

Fun custom travel toy sets

I had such fun designing and sewing these sets.  They were a custom order and the client plans to have these be Valentine’s Day gifts for her sons.

I based these on Larissa Holland’s Wee Mouse Tin House concept.  The client requested a puppy for one set and an owl for the second set.  They both included pillows, blankets, mattresses, and teddy bears.

If you want to order a custom set, just send me a PM through the Etsy shop.

Wee Bunnies available in the shop – great Easter basket fillers

I have several of the Wee Bunny sets finished and ready for purchase in the shop.  These sets come with a white bunny, miniature teddy bear, and bedding all tucked inside an Altoids tin.  They’re great travel toys because they fit easily into a purse or bag.

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.

needle felted animals

Some of my first needle felted sculptures were animals and it’s still a category that enthralls me.  I lean away from exact realism into a more fantastic style.  I try to keep these sculptures small, but the elephant became much larger in the creative process.

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.
