While it's not my shop, Pine Hill Forest is a shop that I help out with. I photograph many of the pieces, and set up the listings. I wish I could say I've done some of the sewing, but my talents do not extend to hand embroidery, stitching, cutting patterns in a straight line or sewing machines. These talents all belong to the shop owner Colleen, who happens to be my mom.
Here are a few of my favorite items in the shop right now. I'll start with the hand sewn animal friends she makes:
Morton - A hand sewn squirrel whose acorn doubles as a tooth fairy pillow or gift card holder!
Claire - A one of a kind dragon. My little girl will own one of these for sure as she is being born in the "year of the dragon" :)
Pickle - The perfect baby friendly pig.
Now for the zipper pouches. I own about a billion of these and love them all. They hold my knitting and crochet supplies, pretty packaging tapes I use on all out going sales, diaper bag supplies, etc. I also like to use them as alternatives to wrapping paper when giving small gifts. You just can't go wrong with a pretty little zipper pouch!
Okay, last but certainly not least are her hand embroidered, completely one of a kid, pins and key fobs. Initially she would just embroider a fun felt zipper pull for each of her zipper pouches. I kept remarking on how much I loved them. So much that I asked her to make one in pin form for me to stick on one of my purses. And that is when she started specifically making pins and key fobs. I also love to use the pins on some of my hand knit shawls which I use as scarves in the winter. It's a cute little touch that makes me smile on those super cold days.
I think I could've picked out at least 30 more items to feature, but these are my top favorites in each section of her shop! Do you have a favorite?
