The Pretty Dreamer workshop offers a lively array of imaginatively handcrafted, useful, colorful, simple wooden toys and goods for home and play. All items are designed and created in the my shop from locally harvested wood. All materials are carefully chosen and non-toxic.
What if you love the music of Kraftwerk and you just have to have action figures of the guys? Well, that’s something you just can’t buy, so of course you’re going to go make it yourself.
Check this out.
I’ve bought some old Mattel Ken figures (that guy from Barbie, you know) at flea markets, “decapitated” them and sculpted the Kraftwerk heads to apply them onto the bodies.
First of all I sculpted them and then I built moulds and casted them with resin.
Then I realized how hard it is to get some clothes for Ken – even in good toy stores!
So I had to sew the red shirts and grey pants on my own – horrible work!
Thank god I found some black shoes at the flea market!
Amazing work and dedication by Dirk Roessler – I love it!
Woolies: Knitting is my passion – the colors, the textures, I love it all and hope that you do too! My favorite things to knit are animals – we have ten animals here on our little ranch!
Spring is looming. Easter baskets. Hatless outings. Critters creeping out from hibernation. Clearly inspiration is also striking. Take a lookat these awesome stuffed toys from SleepyKing! I’ve fallen in love with all their stuffies, from the bunnies to the foxes to the adorable squirrels.
Equally sweet are their vegan Woodland Owl headbands. I love the somewhat 20’s vibe these have. They make me think “flapper” in a whole new way.
If you are looking for unusual Easter basket goodies or a way to wake up your wardrobe and your children’s playspace this spring, be sure to check out Sleepyking’s Etsy shop. It’s dreamy!
