Miga de Pan is the label under which Buenos Aires-based crafter Adriana Torres creates her work. Her exquisite and minimalist pieces are a lovely combination of texture and line. Quiet scenes featuring woodland creatures, geometric shapes, and even architecture are sewn onto natural-colored backgrounds.

…when there’s this “Apple Watch” around? This adorable felt creation popped up on Hine Mizushima’s Instagram the other night. Sewn using tiny buttons and snap fasteners to connect the band. Love it!
Melbourne-based design label Min Pin is the handiwork of Penny Min Ferguson. Her love of weird and awesome things means that she’s created a series of shrink-plastic and metal necklaces. Dinosaurs, snakes, ghosts, and even Bigfoot hang around your neck! They’ve got a great style that would complement any outfit. Colors are bright, but not […]

I love how she takes these materials beyond birthday party decorations and transforms them into delicious-looking designs that caught the eye of companies […]

We see references to stories in the Bible […]
