I’ve been on a tiny toymaking kick lately! In the recent weeks I’ve made the little bend dolls and felt animals above. Its so satisfying to be able to finish a project in a day, and despite what you’d think – they’re not that hard. If you’re interested in trying your hand at some felt toymaking, needle felting, or Waldorf doll making why not join our Waldorf toymaking workshop? All levels are welcome and you can find the complete rundown of dates etc on our workshops page.
These tiny wonders charm everyone who sees them, and they are the perfect size for little people to tote everywhere in their pockets. I used to love having a little pocket friend with me when i was young, ready for any kind of imaginative adventure… in the garden, at a restaurant, or even in the line at the post office!
Each piece is lovingly handmade, from hand painted pure wool felt. Pop in and meet the whole colorful crowd – but with cuteness like this I don’t think they’ll be with us for long!
Just arrived in store are a magical range of whimsical wands! Perfect for all disciplines of magic and sorcery we offer stars, hearts, flowers and lightning bolts. Handmade in Melbourne from pure wool felt and varying ribbons and trims. Come in and select the perfect wand for you, each one is individual!
Felt Dahlia Brooch/Clip Workshop
Saturday June 9th, 12 – 4pm
$65 including materials & afternoon tea
Join Pilgrim for a relaxed afternoon working pure wool felt into a striking lapel brooch or hair accessory. These beautiful dahlias are deceptively easy and always draw compliments. Brighten up your winter wardrobe with a creation you’ve made just for you in a color of your choice. No sewing experience necessary!
Pilgrim has been bitten by the stitching bug and there’s been a tiny people population boom here at Little Sparrow! Meet some of the new folk you could adopt…
Right now these three are looking after some felt farm animals, but you could take them on any adventure you like!
There is even a sorcerer (and some hopeful apprentices!) If you’d like to weave your own magic and create some bendy little people we stock the raw materials for you to choose from: pure wool felt, wool fibre, and bendable wooden doll forms.
These people are all unique and won’t stay around long – we hope to see you soon!
For a long while now I have been friends with the Gals at The Friendship Tree.
I make Bush Babies and Sweetpeas for them and in return i know that my labours are sold by them with love and adoration.
Similarly I am so very proud to sell their stunning handwork…..like this felted artwork
“The Maypole”, a joyous celebration of friendship!
$220 all hand felted, hand sewn, natural fibres……pure joy!
Isn’t it just wonderful getting your mitts on gorgeous fabrics!!
Some of my favourites are this super soft new Chenille $24 per metre, Hand-dyed Pure Wool Felt from $7.95, Wild & unusual Vintage Chenille ( i have quite a collection i do confess!) from $2 per piece, Hand-dyed Pure Cotton Interlock (specifically made here in Melbourne and dyed as skin tones for toymaking) $20 per metre and Cotton rich stretch Velour $50 per metre.
There are so many gorgeous things to make and i often stand in front of my fabric stash and the wonderful fabrics in the shop and just go into a flat spin! rather giddy!
