TuscanyCreative Felt Toys and Ornaments

My name is Katie and I am a former third grade teacher, now stay-at-home Mom of three. My kids are my inspiration for all the toys and gifts I design and make. All new creations have to be approved by my daughter Tuscany, who I named my shop after. Once I had my second child I decided to leave teaching so I could raise my daughter and son. With lots of creative energy to spare I started making fun and cute things for my six year old daughter Tuscany, my 2 year old son Agostino and my nieces in NYC. That’s when I knew I was really onto something special and decided to open my own store. Now I get to share all my creations with you! I have been in business for about 2 years and have sent my goodies to children in 40 states as well as 6 countries outside the Unites States. I also sell my creations in boutiques in New York & Chicago.

Megan Lee Designs

Little did Megan Owdom-Weitz know that receiving an antique Singer sewing machine would open a door to the next phase of her life…a doorway to crafty, crazy and fabulous fun times! Well, it was the sewing machine – and screenprinting classes – that gave Megan the key to unlock the door and see how her love for graphic design, fashion and hand drawn illustration could become a full-time business.

Although an artist and crafter from way back, it wasn’t until 2003 that Megan started to put her creativity to the test with the old Singer and expand her design portfolio. She experimented with fabrics and textiles – creating one-of-a kind purses, sockdogs (cuddy, soft little doggies made out of colorful socks!) and gifts – and quickly made a name for herself in the Chicago independent craft scene.

Every Megan Lee Design begins with a pencil drawing, which she then scans, prints and burns to a screen, and finally prints one-by-one on her table-top press. Her cute and quirky designs can be found on t-shirts, tunic dresses, totes and greeting cards and are inspired by her love of animals, food, nature and the midwest.

Megan’s signature “Midwest is Best” heart can be found all over Chicago and across the country.
