Lil Happy Thangs Review & Giveaway

I am so excited about featuring the sweet Etsy shop, Lil Happy Thangs today on Mom-a-Logues.

Miriam is the brilliant owner and designer of an adorable collection of handmade dolls and plushies.

"Welcome to Li'l Happy Thangs! If you appreciate the care that goes into handmade dolls and plushies, you can find it here! Although I’m a fair seamstress, most of the items in my shop are completely hand sewn by me. There is just something about doing everything by hand, even if it does take a little more time. I also really enjoy making small things because they seem more precious … either that or it’s because I’m nearsighted ☺ My main medium is wool blend felt, although I occasionally use Eco-felt. All my Ginger Melon dolls are made from the wool blend since it feels soft and is even in texture. Due to the small nature of my items, most are recommended for children over 5 years of age." ~ Miriam

I love how she chooses to sew everything by hand even tho she's well versed with a sewing machine.  I agree that there is something special about something that is created solely by hand.

I fell in love with Lil Happy Thangs because the little character's Miriam creates are so tiny.  They are perfect for little hands to play and imagine with.

Let me introduce you to some of them....

Lil Mr. Emery {Magical Forest Dweller}
Emery is a mischievous little forest dweller and likes to don his mystery cape and throw acorns at unsuspecting strangers who muddle through his woods.  

Emery is 8" tall and sewn from a lovely autumn paisley cotton.  

Bunny Boy Binky Boo
This little cutie is about 6" tall and is completely hand-sewn and hand-embroidered.  
Look at how tiny he is and his sweet little face - too cute!!!

Lil Miss Melina Felt Doll
This beauty is only measuring about 5 1/2" tall and is wearing the cutest little green jade pantsuit with a ruffled collar, purple belt and a hand embroidered headband.  She even has tiny bead earrings!!!

Lil Lion
Lil Lion is about 7" tall and has safety eyes, embroidered features and thread jointed arms and legs.  His cute little tail has a pipe cleaner inside for limited posing.

Swee' Pea Baby Miss Boop
Lil Miss Boop loves sunshine, butterflies and hummingbirds.  She is one of the Swee' Pea's that lives in the garden and is about 6 1/2" tall from petal to toe.  

Miriam offers other swee' babies, that are all listed separately.  Collect them all!

Miriam was so generous to send Alexa and Lilli each a felt doll from her collection.

The sweet kitty bee is just so precious.  We love her little outfit as well as the pretty little flower in her hair.  She has white wings attached to her back and the pipe cleaner antenna's are fun for the girls to pose and bend.  

Likewise, the little blue kitty is just as sweet,  Miriam does such an amazing job of accessorizing each of her dolls.  Each little embellishment from felt hair accessories to the little buttons on their shoes makes each one extra special and unique.

The dolls are just so tiny, it's hard to imagine how Miriam can incorporate so many tiny details.  But, each one is so worth it in making each one their very own special character.

Alexa and Lillian just love these little dolls.  They have spent lots of time playing make-believe that they live together with the fairies in tree stumps and stick houses.

Be sure to visit Lil Happy Thangs to meet the other plushies and felt friends that miriam has created.  There are so many neat and creative pieces that you'll want to collect them all.
