Hip Products: Sweetie Petites

Lisa Tilse of The Red Thread is an inspiring artist and member of the craft and design community. I've long loved her art (read more about the Japanese-influenced sushibird tiles here) which always seems to strike a chord with what folks are wanting right now.

And the same can be said for clever Lisa's cute and crafty Sweetie Petites line of sew-your-own dolls. Coinciding (not accidentally) with our growing love of handmade and the Cult of Craft Cool, these kits are designed to make crafting a breeze. Each kit contains all you need to make a Sweetie and her little friend, including printed fabric panels designed by Lisa, stuffing, ribbon loops and sewing instructions. Each doll has her name printed on the back and a little note for her new owner.

Mimi, Molly, Daisy and Ginger would make the perfect gift for anyone yearning to get into handmade; or you can just get a kit for yourself and revel in your crafty talent once your Sweetie is made and delivered to the lucky recipient (or kept!). And great news - Lisa is planning a couple of boisterous boy pals for the Sweeties in the lead-up to Christmas.

You can find Sweetie Petites on The Red Thread online store. Make sure you bookmark Lisa's excellent The Red Thread blog for a well-curated look at design, craft and inspiring finds.

And shop online for kids products from great stores in the Australian Online Kids and Baby Store Directory.
