These little felt dumpling sets were inspired by my favorite dumpling place, Din Tai Fung in Seattle.
When the new restaurant opened in downtown Seattle earlier this year, it created quite a frenzy with the wait list up to two hours long!
- 2 felt dumplings with hand-stitched eyes and mouth and a glittery flower
- 1 mini bamboo steamer with lid
- 2 hand-cut lettuce leaves.
PICK A COLOR
You can choose the flower color of each dumpling! The come in blue, pink or purple glitter felt. The glitter is permanently adhered to the felt. So sparkly!
Do you love dumplings as much as I do? Scoop these up!
PLEASE NOTE: I would not recommend this for children under 5 because these are mini and may be a choking hazard.
I love little boutiques tucked away in the city, a neighborhood gem filled with new treasures to be discovered. So when a local maker friend suggested Momo as a spot to check out for one of my artist dates, I knew I had a winner.
Located in Japantown on 600 South Jackson Street in Seattle, Momo is carefully curated, carrying indie and handmade brands with a mix of Asian and European influences. A self-described “happy hapa shop”, Momo feels old world and modern at the same time.
I spent a good amount of time browsing this eclectic spot, while chatting with one of the owners about the items that sparked joy and made me smile. If you love supporting independent artists and makers, I highly recommended heading to Momo during your next visit to Seattle.

You are loved!
Yes, you are. I truly love my Catshy Crafts customers and supporters.
Over the past 6 years of making hoop art, I have come to know my wonderful customers – online and in-person. Through e-mail messages and face-to-face conversations. I’ve read my Etsy reviews and listened to shoppers comment on my craft fair booth.
It is so awesome when a lovely customer can instantly connect with one of my hoop art – either because of the motif (such as a happy rain cloud or a serene woodland fox) or the uplifting message (you are loved).
However, it is often when she sends me that first message to ask about custom work, that a deeper connection is revealed.
I can often feel the love that this person has for the recipient of the custom piece.
It is then that I get a peek inside her heart. And I feel so blessed and honored to create this piece just for her.
5 reasons why
Based on all the feedback I have received, I have begun to tease out why I love making art for them. Here are my top 5 reasons why.
- They are sweet, happiness seekers who cherish their families and friends.
- They celebrate milestones with a heartfelt gesture, hand-written note or custom-made gift.
- They love whimsy and color and a bit of magic.
- They want to surround themselves with art and photographs and keepsakes that evoke coziness and serenity and heaps of adorable-ness.
- They crave inner peace in the midst of their busy lives and know how important it is to slow down and enjoy the moment.
So thank you for supporting this small mom-run handmade business. I appreciate you more than you know!
