Felt Funny bunny


I am in the blessed age of my life where many friends are pregnant and busy with babies. This means I have all the more reason to create fun felt figures. I have an entire pinterest board dedicated to fuzzy felty figures!

The other day I already made a bunny for Easter, which ended up in the crib of my friends little girl. Now I created Funny Bunny for another sweet baby.

Fabulous five! Mothersday

Mothers day is in exactly 1 week (in the Netherlands). My mom is getting a homemade gift, from the heart. Here are my top 5 picks;

  1. My mom loves reading. A personalized bookmark would be a good idea!
  2. A heartfelt sweet message on a board or a card
  3. Make an egg cosy with some felt! Perfect combined with a surprise breakfast in bed!!

  4. Say it with food! Bake a special apple pie
  5. Make a simple and personal card

Babyshower craft ideas

I firmly believe in celebrating all the milestones in your life. Baby showers are not yet a common tradition in the Netherlands. Among my friends they are very popular at the moment…or it might be because my friends are all entering a certain phase in their lives…

babyshower ideas

Wherever you are, here’s some ideas to give your baby shower a personal touch:

  1. Create a personalized guest book. People can write down personal wishes, you can add pictures of the baby shower later. I made this guest book with some lovely scrapbook pages I had lying around.
  2. Give your guests a party favor before they go home, with a thank you card attached. Babyshower2
  3. Make some cupcakes in the theme color
  4. Looking for a fun craft activity during the baby shower? Pimp the clothe hangers for the baby clothes. Or decorate some pegs.
  5. Make personalized felt figures, like Cloudette or this plane rattle.

Car garage birthday treat

Every year it’s a challenge, what will may toddler hand out at his day care. This year i made a garage full box full of car shaped treats.


The cars

I made these cars by wrapping raisin boxes in colored paper. I glued some dutch “pepernoten” on the boxes using a thick icing made with icing sugar and some drops of egg white.

The garage

I upcycled a delivery box to make the garage.I first wrapped it, to hide the ugly box. I used strong black strips of card board. When my toddler starts playing, he can be a bit rough. This is why I connected all the strips with cello tape.

A plane baby rattle

The coming months it seems all my friends will be having babies. This means that I get to make beautiful felt figures. This airplane has a rattle to make it more fun.

I first drew and cut out 2 identical airplane figures of red and orange felt. I then attached a white star to the red air plane. I glued the felt planes together at the wings with textile glue. I stitched along the wings. This way the wings are unstuffed, flat and sturdy from the glue. After this I connected the 2 planes using a blanket stitch. I stuffed the plane with filling and placed a rattle around the nose. You can download the Free Pattern here.
