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.

Katie Canavan

I’m Katie Canavan, a textile artist who lives & works in Los Angeles. After watching my mom make quilts, I took a quilting class at age 8. The year was 1992 and I haven’t stopped sewing since. I went to Michigan State University to study Acting & Costume Design, and I taught all my friends and roommates how to knit.¬† I love to take something old – whether a bookcase or a vintage sheet – and give it new life. I’m inspired by nature & the nostalgic and I’m completely obsessed with color.
