Whimsical Childhood wonder...

Needle felted with ethically sourced wool

Nora and Edie

our story

These days you want to surround yourself with things that make you smile. Something that reminds you of your childhood and your love of reading.

Here at “Nora and Edie Handmade”, I needle felt little Handmade Readers – poseable animal figurines lost in books. Each figurine comes with a tiny handmade book with the Reader’s name and story typed on a Library Catalogue Card.

As a primary teacher for over twenty-five years, I share my students’ love of books, animals and pretend. Combined with my passion for colour, wool and writing, my Handmade Readers were born.
