Heather Cameron said...

I love all of this - I was looking for my mom, saying oh, I wish I could get these, then remembered - I'm a mom! I better send this link to my man now!

Erin said...

while i'm sure there are lots of people making felt camera cases, the one you featured seems to be awfully similar to another etsy seller's work:

maybe that means there's a template somewhere so we can make our own? who knows!

Amie said...

Great Finds - thanks!

who.knows.what.dreams.may.go said...

hmmm my mom would not like any of these besides the cards??? what to get someone who does not like "cute" "lovely" or "pretty" things......

Soné said...
