If you follow on social media, you've probably noticed we've started offering laser cut felt shapes! But wait, most of those aren't beasts at all! That's true, but there a lot of things in the world and we imagine our Little Beast enjoy seasonal decorating as much as we do =) We made our first set of felt shapes a bit before Halloween, to cheer up our space and ourselves. Being at home almost 100% of the time due to the pandemic starts to get you down after a while. It was surprising how much adding a couple of seasonal felt banners...
