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.

Fun custom order – Wee Bunny sets in customized wedding colors – wedding favors

This was such a fun custom order!  The client ordered seven sets of the Wee Bunny in a Tin House to include in activity bags for children who’ll be guests at her wedding.  The bunny is our usual white felt, but she chose the rest of the colors – brown felt for the bear, ecru felt for the pillow, navy felt for the blanket, and buttercream felt for the mattress.  Just a reminder that you can order multiples of any of these sets.  The turn-around time on this custom order was under three weeks.  Larger orders will take longer since all of these pieces are hand sewn.

Stock up on travel toys for your summer travel

Summer will be here before we know it.  Stock up now on travel toys in tins.  They’re so small and easy to carry.  You can slip them in your purse or your child’s backpack.  Many of my customers are grandmothers and have told me they keep a set or two in their purse to take out when the grandkids have to wait at a restaurant or other location.   I have several of the Wee Mouse, Wee Bunny, and Fox in a Box sets completed and ready to ship.  If you don’t see the exact color combination you want, just send me a convo and I can create a custom set just for you.

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.

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!
