Shop Spotlight: The Fox In the Attic

A child's  best accessory is without a doubt their smile, and what brightens up a child's face more than a toy? Today's shop is all about beautifully, handcrafted toys from a shop on Etsy called The Fox in the Attic. The Owner, Designer, Maker, and Creator, Michelle, started her business "on a whim, when she purchased a sewing machine one day and hand stitched her very first soft toy, a bunny." Her imagination started running wild, as she started making stuffed dogs, cats, badgers, chickens, and clouds. Based out of the UK, Michelle is inspired by travel,  art, and a love for antique jewelry to name a few.

Michelle is joined by her Mum, Louise, who is the crochet maker for the business. All items created by The Fox in the Attic are stuffed with premium polyester filling. This shop is full of gorgeously hand created cushions, soft toys, fabric totes, and bunting. These whimsical, vintage inspired toys, are a babe and a Mom's dream come true. Its a toy you wouldn't mind laying around the house when company comes over. In fact I approve for these toys to never be put away!

This stuffed fox is delivering love straight to your child on a daily basis. If you are pregnant, and waiting to find out your baby's gender, the fox is gender neutral, and a perfect first cuddle toy. 

What a beautiful addition to add to your child's Easter basket! These stuffed bunny toys hand embroidered with Easter eggs and flowers are sure to be the favorite drop off by the Easter Bunny. 

The "Cloud" cushions are probably the sweetest thing I've ever seen. With hand sewn sayings like "Good Night", "Sweet Dreams", and "Counting Sheep" your little will be sleeping comfortably in the clouds. You can even ask for a custom cloud if you have a special saying you would like to have embroidered. 

Cat & Dog Stuffed Toys are the perfect cuddle buddy for the animal lover. 

These hand embroidered owls, are so gorgeous, and larger than the standard toys in the shop. Measuring approximately 15 inches tall, they are sure to make a statement in your child's room. If you want even larger there are also stuffed owls in the shop measuring 20 inches. (what a hoot) 

Fabric Animal cushions make beautiful room decor, and lay nicely on seating, bedding, and play areas. Pictured are the (Raccoon) and (Hippo) cushions. These would be so sweet for the "woodland" or "jungle" style nurseries and playrooms.  Other fabric cushions include a (Kooala),  (Chicken), and a (Mushroom). 

These toys are so special and unique, that your child is sure to cherish, and hold on to as a keepsake.
