Alicia from Felt With Love Designs started making toys for her daughter after becoming disenchanted with how heavily toys rely on TV/movies, and less on imagination and creativity. While she enjoys most creative mediums, felt quickly became a favorite toy-making material due to its versatility. Her favorite toys to design are finger puppets, quiet book pages, softies and pretty much anything that encourages pretend play. (This pretend play adventure kit is one of her favorite designs.)

In addition to toys, Alicia also enjoys sewing to add to her daughter’s wardrobe. She regularly contributes patterns to the One Thimble e-zine and is extremely proud of her latest pattern, a set of machine sewn, felt puzzle animals.
