retired designs

KLTworks has been around since 2005 and I hold many of the designs dear to heart. I spent many years designing and making for the modern nursery and this section has many of my favorites products.

Because I want to keep my time open for new ideas, products, and projects, I don't make these anymore, but some may pop up in the shop from time to time if I'm feeling nostalgic & longing to make one.

Thread Drawing Softies:
These lovable animal pillows are made with screen printed versions of my original drawings in thread.

Art Dolls:
One of a kind dolls that are close to my heart & made with screen printed faces & up-cycled favorite sweaters and fabrics.

Plush Slugs:
Made originally in 2008 as a lovely for my baby, these slugs have become a favorite in our house and many others around the world. They're made with care & can withstand tons of love.

Pencil Dolls:
We like the book Harold's Purple Crayon in our house which inspired this fun Pencil Doll. These dolls are screen printed by hand on organic sweatshirt fleece with original KLTworks patterns
