My name is Erin and I am the creator of Thelma’s Handmade. I am a wool FANATIC and make unique items like handbags, pincushions, banners, headbands, vests, flower clips and one-of-a-kind artwork using fun, quirky fabrics, my grandma’s vintage trimmings and upcycled felted wool. My most popular items are what I like to call “Art Market’s Original Aviary” – my birds and owls are made to last the ages and have so much character! This season, I’ve added Bride and Groom owl sets to the fray! Also look for winter items like upcycled felted wool arm warmers, holiday cake buntings and holly berry pins! I love my family and I love to craft – I’m an addict of both, really. Balancing time between the two is often challenging, but both give me so much joy!
Why “Thelma” in Thelma’s Handmade?
When I was a kid, my parents wanted to give my siblings and me old fuddy-duddy names to use to embarrass us among friends. Mine was Thelma. What once was a horrid excuse for a joke, now is an endearing and perfect name for my line of unique items.
