Pulling out Boxes and look who I found...


Lots of pieces from 2007 when I worked with Midwest of Cannon Falls on a line of Christmas, Easter, and all around decor... I'll be shooting more of these today and posting soon!



all items priced to sell, and combined shipping is the way to go!
Expect a date and time to be sent soon... now, two drawers down- lots more to go.



This week I'm cleaning up this studio, going though drawers and shelves and piles- unearthing items I've found and treasured but am not willing to let go of. Stay tuned for all the details this week as the sale shapes up. Some items: vintage millinery flowers, mohair, wool felt, buttons, fabric bundles, old spools, vintage trims and pin backs, old and loved stuffed animals... more to come as I slowly uncover all that's here. xxxjennifer

the Website is live!



...all new, in other places too...


Tomorrow, while I'm getting the pieces ready for the Shop Update Here, I'm also working on new pieces for the POLKA DOT CLUB. There will be dressed bears and clothing and lots for grownup and very little kids alike.



the website is all new
Friday the 14th, noon CST

this guy...


I made this bear in 2011 and held on to him for all these five years, but I think I'm ready to put him out into the world... he'll be at the Update Friday.

its in the details


getting dressed up.


Setting A DATE


It needs to happen. I've been very very slowly working on pieces this year, but until I set a date, nothing will get done. So here we go!

2016 Website Update
Friday Oct 14th, 
12noon CST

Let's do this.

I'm showing up


This guy is all ready to be stuffed and there is a big pink bunny sitting next to him... things are in fact happening. Slow yes, but surely just the same.

The studio has been busy. More busy that I have hours to give, but it feels good to be working furiously and then skip out on it all to care for my kids, myself, my family. They're still so little I keep reminding myself. Now just 3 and 6 they're all love and play and energy and chaos. I miss the days in my old big studio where I could spend long days and work into the night, but this... this right now: this is better. This is rich and full and hard and I love it. So with all that energy and heart, when I sit down to make one or two of these pieces,  I'm showing up with my whole heart, and I think all that goodness gets in there too.

loving this guy...


 like a lot.

Rabbits... of a felty funny kind...


three oldies but goodies...


I just put three little sculptures/cake toppers in my etsy shop that I've had in the studio- they're mega on sale, and I'm excited to get them into someones hands who'll appreciate them rather than having them in a drawer in my studio...

ALL NEW- winter update is updated!



shooting for the update TOMORROW!




I'm so excited about how all the new pieces are coming together. Lots of one of a kind, hand dyed- bears and animals. The shop will be all new Thursday- with a preview from 11:30-11:55. The pieces will be all available for sale at 12. Let me know if you have any questions. XXXjennifer



Making two new bears old... 

I've been surprisingly prolific in the studio the last few days. I had been starting so many bears and animals, and now things are quickly getting finished and ready for a website sale... Wednesday? Thursday? Stay tuned. 

hello little one


I'm thinking the website update will be early next week... when the date's set I'll be sure to post it here and send out an email as well!

❤️ Two ❤️


On the work table today...


I'm slowly making a few special pieces for the website, alongside all the PDC which is going out of the studio each day. It's that time of year... I'm excited thinking about all these bears headed to homes all over the world- now that's sweet. 
More coming...

Birds! New Kits in the Shop


It's been forever, I'll admit it. The Polka Dot Club takes up nearly all my time in the studio these days. But I've been eeking out a little time here and there just for this space. Making new kits and visiting with old patterns ** more on that in a moment.

Let me introduce a little something simple and sweet. For your Holiday or Everyday:

** and YES! i've got a few bears in the works too. I hope to update the shop in the second week of December. For real. I'll post more as pieces begin to take shape.

sneak peek


These three pieces will be in the shop tomorrow at 12noon CST tomorrow: Thursday July 2nd.

TWO NEW... and maybe more.


It's been a while. Ok, more than a while, it's been a long time... but I have two new bears going into the shop and I'm working on at least one more little bittie for tomorrow. YES! They will all be in the shop tomorrow at 12noon CST. WHOOT WHOOT. Happy Forth.
