NY International Gift Fair

I wanted to share what we've been recently working on at the studio.  A small collection of sweet items that capture a nostalgia for our childhood, or perhaps the childhood of our dreams.  Houses, nature, children, and pets, all play together inside a warm and worn suitcase.  The art of sewing, wire bending, and paper cutting are highlighted as well as the idea of recycling and repurposing everyday items and materials.  This group of goodies will be displayed in our "Bunnies By The Bay" booth at the International Gift Fair that runs from Jan. 29th- Feb. 3rd.  So if you happen to be stuck in New York City due to all the snow right now, stop in at the Javits Center for a peak and let us know what you think.
This is one of the latest creations for our "hutch studio" line of little pets.  "Kitty" is a soft hand painted plush sitting approx. 3 inches high.   A great example of "less is more" or "less is meow".  She is backed with a soft cotton fabric in a polka dot print.
"Puppy" is a hand painted plush sitting approx. 3 1/2" high.  He is also backed in a soft polka dotted fabric. Both of these cuties are just prototypes at the moment along with a number of other items in the case.  We want to cage a reaction at the show to see what might be worth producing more of.  I know that I am looking forward to seeing more of these little pets at the studio.  How about you?


  1. I LOVE your new pets, you are on to a winner there (who made them by the way?)
    How exciting!

  2. Thanks Deb!
    Our 2 new little pets are the collaborative creation of Krys Kirkpatrick and Edna Whitcher. I'd love to do some type of giveaway with your blog if you are interested. Let me know.

  3. Love the little pets (the kitty is my favorite!) Nice work- the display looks great!
