I feel incredibly lucky to be surrounded by amazing artisans in Seattle! One such artisan is Jamie Irene. I've had the pleasure to see many of Jamie's creations over the past few years and this girl's got talent. She's finally selling her fantastic creations on her own website. These felted wool backpacks are irresistible which makes it even more difficult to decide which one to choose -- penguin, owl, frog or bunny? You know, I can just imagine what a comforting little pal this would be for Ms. Bean on her first day of school.
