I like the sword fern pouch. Very creative designs.

Mama said...

I am actually in love with an item that is no longer for sale. I always have my kleen canteens with me but have only brought myself to buy one cover for it because I've only seen neoprene ones and while they are sturdy and reusable they don't really fit my ideals. These wool covers are the cutest and make me so happy. I hope to be able to have a couple of my own someday. (hint hint)

I really like everything in the shop, I love recycling and sweaters and coffee. If I had to pick, I think I'm in the market for a caffeine molecule sweater. One of my longest-serving friends is a chemist and this would be right up his alley. His birthday's November 5 so plenty of time for it to arrive here in Scotland, too.

Kits and Caboodles said...

ohh, love the recycled stuff! My babies too big now, but the bunny baby cap is my fav. Maybe she could make me one for a toddler! Great shop!
