Handmade Softies by Little Wooden Shoe

Earlier this week I had the pleasure of meeting the lovely Alex from Australian label Little Wooden Shoe who introduced me to some of her handmade dolls and softies. Of course, I couldn’t resist sharing a few pictures with you, especially when they’re as cute as this…

Crafty Mum and brains behind Little Wooden Shoe, Alex,¬† was born in Sao Paulo Brazil to a Dutch Father and Greek Mother. She moved to Holland in 97 where she lived for 11 years and met her Australian hubby. They then moved to the USA for a year in 2007 where they were married, before moving to Australia¬†in 2008. In 2009, their son Luke was born… Whew, that’s quite a journey!

Alex learned to sew while she was working in a local quilt shop in Frederick, Maryland and has a passion for Japanese craft. You’ll see lots of Zakka inspiration in her designs, each one made from cotton linen blends with fun, colourful prints. I’m a little bit in love with the detailing on her dollies, in particular the little blue Mary Janes. You can find Little Wooden Shoe dolls and softies online at Etsy, or visit Alex’s blog for the latest updates.
