Dreamed up by Melbourne-based designer Emma Patterson, 'Homely Creatures' a range of cute and quirky things for your home.

Supporting fair-trade and the handmade, Homely Creatures' knitted cushions are made by artisans in Bolivia, and felt goods plus other cushions are handmade by women in Nepal.

Homely Creatures products are perfect for babies, children, new mothers or the young at heart. Handmade from the most natural materials, you can now choose to buy ethically made wares without sacrificing on style.

If you are anything like us, you believe in the handmade and the treasured. You believe that 'things' are important. They can be an extension of personality, a physical memory, a time machine to childhood, or simply something that makes us smile. Things, when put together can create a space that is truly personal, a space that relaxes or inspires.

"With a background in product design for children, I have recently returned home to Australia from living in London and travelling around the world for 4 inspiring years. I am a freelance graphic designer, illustrator and product designer available for hire. You can see my portfolio website here! Thank you for visiting my beloved blog and shop, I hope you enjoy having a look around."
