Enchanted forest felt design by Mijnes

Is there any other word for these bags than beauuutiful?? Wow, these handmade bags with felt decoration by Dutch brand Mijnes are simply gorgeous! And not only are there styles for boys and girls, but for moms as well. I suppose there will be a wide competition on who gets what, as they have a big collection ranging from diaper bags to pillows and crib bags (and many more), all equally unique.

Unfortunately though, I need to slow your enthusiam, because all their amazing and detailed designs make the production of these items quite labor intensive, which shows in the price tag. But if you don’t mind shelling out 99€ for a crib bag, or 225€ for a diaper bag e.g., then they’re yours!

Fun with felt: Twinkle Kids Tags

After just having presented these gorgeous felt clips below, I thought I’d stick with the theme of felt.  So if you have already ordered the full line of giddygiddy accessories and are now wondering how to wrap them in style, I have a suggestion for matching felt gift tags from Twinkle Kids.

These cool gift cards are handmade in USA, and for the eco-conscious parents, it’s good to know their felt is Öko-Tex Standard 100 certified.  A “witty card”, as they call it fits into the front, to personalize your gift.

I was just thinking that these tags are actually too nice to be simple gift tags which, although reusable, would still most of the time hidden in some drawer, stuffed together with gift wrap and ribbons. Why not make luggage tags of them? They would surely spice up a plain bag!

The most adorable envy of the playground: Giddygiddy hair clips

Some of you might have heard of these before, but they are just too precious not to be mentioned again, these super adorable Giddygiddy hair clips.  And I figure moms are always looking for some great ideas to adorn their daughters’ hair with some clips and barrettes that are cute and unique looking at the same time.

Well, these accessories have it all, plus such great designs that will even make the least craft gifted mom look like the queen of everything homemade ready to compete with Martha Stewart.  Moreover, they also have the ultimate cuteness factor and will surely be equally loved by moms and kids alike and would make an excellent accessory for photoshoots with your loved ones, too.

And if your little girl is in this phase of pulling all the ribbons and barrettes out of her hair, these may just do the trick! Though I fear there’s still one problem: they are so adorable, you will probably have to invent some great story to convince your child to take them off at night!
