Maluhia Designs


I know that many of you are fans of Etsy, as am I. Therefore, you can imagine my excitement each year when our city hosts many of our talented local Etsy crafters in what is known as EtsyRain.

This year was my second year of attendance, and I was pleased to come across a booth by the name of Maluhia. Right away, the name attracted me (as it is a very Polynesian name), so of course I was interested in what she was offering.

Maluhia creates a variety of pouches, bibs, cosmetic bags and glasses cases for children (and adults alike). The fabrics she uses are from Japan, and are very kawaii. I've searched for fabrics similar to these, and they are not easy to find in your neighborhood fabric store.

She manned her own booth, and was very sweet. You can tell when meeting her, that she puts a lot of heart into her designs.

I picked out a couple of bibs that will be great to throw into a Christmas present. These two are for 7 month old twins--a boy and a girl.


Of course, I couldn't resist the glasses case with the little deer on them. I've worn glasses since the age of 6--and no matter how many cases I have, they always get lost. I'm hoping this isn't the story with this guy.

I hope to run across her again at another event we have coming up--Urban Craft Uprising. This is a larger event that pulls together so much creativity, it can be a bit overwhelming!

Do you think these would bring a smile to the faces of any kids (or big kids) in your life? Are there any other Etsy fanatics out there?

Speaking of cute, how cute are these little Pa nail polishes from Japan?

I didn't know there was such an event in the area! But I'll try to make it to the next one ;)

Love the deer glasses case, I have a very op-art one... Thumbs up for quirky cases :) x

@rocaille: yes, the next is on dec 5th...:)

Its been a while since I have paid you a visit! I'm an etsy junky and that little deer case is just adorable, as are the bibs! I think kids of all ages would love your picks.

Cute nail polishes are all rave in our house, that's what Santa will be stuffing stockings with for my girls.

where was this event?! I need to make my way there! I love craft fairs :)

fantastic said...

@nonu: who are your favorite etsy sellers? Do you sell on there? And what lucky girls!!

@dsk steph: intimate theatre! I'll let you know next time ;)

Sam said...

This is such a great post, thanks so much for sharing!! I will keep my eyes open for creative events like that in my area. Hopefully I'll be attending a similar one soon, it makes me wanna go out and talk to people :)
Have lovely day!!
Best, Sam xx

Tali said...

Im a fan of etsy but i have no particular favourite sellers as the etsy coverage isnt that good on the uk websites. Noone wants to share etsy links lol
Love those little nail varnishes. Too cute!!! xox

NONU6 said...

I don't have a particular favorite, I mostly visit Etsy to buy fabrics and for eye candy :) I don't sell, yet. I've been considering it, we'll see.

xo

fantastic said...

@Sam: aww I'm glad this inspired you to get out and about!

@tali: i didn't realize there was a separate uk site..I will have to take a look there. I just figured everyone sold on the same site. It's overwhelming!

@nonu: well I def think you should add some of your creations to the site..but I suppose you'd have to work fast with everyone's orders!

Rowena said...

Ooohh I would die for an event like that in the UK? We do have craft fairs and things but they're usually full of granny designs .Nothing this Kawaii!

Nik said...
