About Wee Things
Creating unique, natural toys for imaginative play.
It is often the little things in life that bring us the greatest delight, sometimes even without our knowing it. Children never think to question putting a small treasure in their pocket—a golden acorn cap, a bluejay feather, or a smooth beach stone—and find wonder in the simple pleasures of the natural world.
I opened the Wee Things Fiber Arts studio in 2014, inspired by my toddler’s endless curiosity and amazement in our natural environment. Each handmade toy and fiber sculpture is a unique creation that goes through many iterations of design, fabrication, and detailing as I explore the object’s shape and individual character. Most designs also go through a key test phase with my two children!
My soft sculpture “Woodland Home” series features sets of small animals in their natural environments: tiny wool chipmunks peak out from within a log house full of fabric acorns; an owl perches outside her corduroy tree trunk, guarding her nest of chicks. Each original design is embellished with natural fibers and incorporates needle felting and embroidery to create an heirloom toy or work of art that I hope your loved one will adore. An eco-friendly studio, I use only natural materials and often feature up-cycled fabrics, such as gently used wool and cotton clothing.
