storybook necklacesby Jen List & Stacy Waddington
- the story
Once upon a time, artists Jen List and Stacy Waddington stumbled upon a heap of unwanted sweaters and shirts. Finding their inspiration in the bright colors and soft textures of their retired materials, the pair decided to spin a yarn of their own by transforming the old fabrics into a line of new, snuggly, imaginative children's toys and accessories that encourage early learning and individual expression through creative design, wonder, and storytelling.
These extra-soft necklaces give your little bookworm an early introduction to the iconic children's stories "The Three Little Pigs," and "Goldilocks and the Three Bears." These wearable classics' eponymous characters are represented in vibrant hand-felted pom-poms, making even the Big Bad Wolf cuddly. Handmade in Flossmoor, Illinois.Due to this item's handmade and reclaimed nature, each is one-of-a-kind and will vary.

Jen List & Stacy Waddington
Jennifer & Stacy met as preschool room mothers, sharing a love of children & artistic expression. With backgrounds in graphic arts & fashion merchandising, they were always looking for ways to share their creativity -- beyond the 4-year old audience -- and before long, seven smooches was born.
Working with little more than a sewing machine & bags of unwanted wool sweaters, the gorgeous tiny cardigans, hats, mittens & kimonos came to be. Upon the discovery of needle felting, cotton blankets were adorned with felty little animals & stars and beautiful handmade wool felt emerged as warm, comfy slippers.
Surrounded by the love & support of their husbands & families, as well as piles & piles of wool, Jen & Stacy hope you can share in some of the magic that has become... collection
