Friday Favorites – my quilty things and not-so-quilty things of the moment
I can’t believe it’s already April! Spring is officially here and Easter is just around the corner! So with that in mind, I thought I’d share some of my favorite Creatives that are making some truly beautiful goods for today’s Friday Favorite Things. Any of these ladies’ fabulous makes would make perfect Spring-inspired gifts!
First I want to share Megan of Little Wild Petals’ gorgeous collection of hair accessories
Megan makes unexpected and fresh pigtail hair clips, headbands and flower crowns out of felt. I just love how unique her designs are. She has everything from bees to carrots to avocados (and we know how much I’m loving avocado-inspired goodies lately!) Not only are they unique, but they are customizable – you can get anything in an alligator hair clip or a nylon stretchy headband! Which makes it a wonderful way to mix and match, or to purchase what works best for your little girls.
I recently purchased a few variations of my favorite items for a little one-year-old gift. I picked a set of strawberry clips, a coral berry nylon headband and an Easter-edition metal headband with wired bunny ears and little flowers attached. The bunny ears were especially GORGEOUS! I have no doubt this sweet little girl (and her mom) will just love them!! I also know now first-hand that her quality is excellent!
Next I want to share with you someone very special…. Lena Bekh. She is a textile artist, genius really, who hand makes each and every doll she sells
Have you ever seen anything so lovely?! Every little creature she makes is unique and a true work of art. Her craftsmanship is unparalleled. These are truly heirloom quality and are meant to be cherished forever.
You can visit her website Lenabekh.com to view all of her previous whimsical creations. But I will tell you, she only lists a couple dolls at a time and they sell almost instantaneously. So my secret to you is to follow her on instagram where she often gives sneak peaks of what she’s working on and announces when they will go on sale. That way you can be one of the first in line. Your Welcome.
You know what else would go great with these items and make a beautiful gift? A lovey, quilt or bib from my shop! How serendipitous is that?

Last, but definitely not least, is another favorite maker I found on Instagram who makes beautiful custom signs out of wood and felt. Her name is Heather of Mae Flower Signs
I don’t think there is anything more perfect that I could share with you just in time for Easter, Mother’s Day, graduation or even Father’s day gifts! Heather makes each and every piece and has sooo sooo sooo many wonderful ideas you could chose from!

She does everything from quotes to hobbies to baby announcements. And she will even recreate your furry family members. You are able to completely customize everything! From the felt flower colors to lettering to the stain of the wood. The sky is the limit with her!
I would know too because I had her make some signs for my mother and step mother last year for Mother’s Day. Below are the trio of signs she made for my mom of her 3 doggie best friends. They came out looking just like each one too! My step mom got the cutest pig with a flower necklace since she and my dad raise pigs.
I have been dying to get myself a trio to put in my craft studio to showcase all my favorite things. I mean, don’t you think I need these three with matching flowers like pronto???
Ok, I think I’ve shared enough creative goodness for one day! But if you’re wanting more…go read my previous Friday Favorite Things in My Blog for some more Spring-y goodness!
