We’re having a little tree-trimming party on Friday night, and I’m secretly pine-ing (ha!) for a couple of these felt ornaments from Etsy shop Red Marionette. Aren’t they adorable!?! Each one has his own little personality… for example, Nester the Bear “loves chestnuts roasting by an open fire and snowball fights. He has a thing for spiced cider with a kick to it, you will have to watch him carefully.”
Oh, and the wreaths. How I love them.
Red Marionette was developed in 2008 by a crafty redhead with an overactive imagination. Believing that everyone should have a doppelganger in felt she frantically doodled her way into madness.
From these doodles, obnoxiously cute creatures were born. These creatures took the form of pocket monsters, wreaths, totes, ornaments, and many other entities.
As they are carefully hand stitched, Lola, Pete, Fortinbras and countless others quickly developed their own eccentric tastes and characteristics. Some like cupcakes or have a thing for camping. Just like snowflakes, children and stars in the sky, no two are alike.
Her creations become full of life in ways that felt and thread would have never achieved without her imagination.
What’s going on your tree? Do you have a favorite ornament?
