MADE Design & Crafts: felt donuts, children's products, and other must-have-cuties!

In her own words:

Hello! I'm Mayene (pronounced "my-yen"), owner of MADE Design & Crafts on Etsy. I'm a graphic designer and violin teacher hailing from San Francisco, California that (obviously) has a love for doughnuts. I initially opened shop in September 2010 with simple original art illustration prints, and then decided that if I did anything on the side, I might as well take time away from the computer, since I spend AT LEAST 8 hours a day in front of one.

A lot of my craft work and designs is heavily influenced by but not limited to "kawaii" style items ("cute" in Japanese). I spend a lot of time creating and improving upon little plush charms that I've grown up being attracted to in shops but never had the money to buy as a little girl, as well as thinking up ideas for children's educational resources and stories (such as my fabric ABC book and mini ABC pillow set as seen on Etsy and donut story coming soon). Many other ideas are set to go into production this year such as a plush version of Settlers of Catan (I'm a board game and video game geek in addition to much of my nerdiness)!

Outside of Etsy, I also offer design services and critique. I do wedding album design and photo retouching/editing on the side and have other creations such as custom playing cards.
