Rawr…..Upcycled Dinos!


I used to snooze with my favorite buds next to me. These of course are the sweet stuffed animals of childhood we all had at one time or another.  I always loathed the time when I would have to box those animals and leave them in the basement. With inspiration from Leanne I’ve considered a new collection. Think dinos!


Leanne’s company, NobleUpcycling is based in Ontario, Canada. What I love about Leanne’s collection is the color and lovely details of her dinos. They are adorable and I want to collect them all. On her Etsy bio she explains how she fell in love with making handmade items from the upcycled felted wool sweaters. Upcycling converts waste materials or extra fabric into new materials and items. It really helps preserve the environment, and a lot of sustainable folks use it!

And oh yeah, they’d be great for any kids in your life too! I love him! He reminds me of childhood and teas with bears and summer showers.
