Icantdance store

I have a small company called Icantdance, yes after the Genesis song. I make organic fabric puppets, kids clothes, baby things, pin cushions and other fun things. My shop can be found on Etsy at Puppelettes.

All my puppets are made in soft organic fabrics printed with water-based colours and filled with organic wool. 

The puppets are also sold at Unibarn on Odengatan 102, Stockholm, Sweden.
And at Rackarungar on Skånegatan 78, Södermalm, Stockholm, Sweden.
Since October 2015 they can also be found in Australia at Scandikid.

Bastien the sailor is sold at the store 100years in Gothenburg.

I started making fabric puppets just before my brothers first daughter Joni was born. I wanted to give her something different and colourful, something easy to hold and grab. The first two puppets, an early version of Bastien and a dude called Bobbie, became very loved and it was amazingly fun to come up with new ones. Within a couple of months the puppet family contained of 11 characters, now they are more than 20.


And these are the Puppelettes.

Bastien loooves the sea. Almost as much as his moustache which is groomed, combed and waxed every day. He loves to sail away in his little boat ‘The Queen’ to watch the dolphins dance. A trip in the sunset, with a baguette, some cheese and his accordion, that’s life!

Belle is a cool lady who wears her hat on one side. She can sort out a rowdy engine with one hand, and tickle sharks with the other. She dreams of the freedom of the seven seas, but has a hard time leaving Bastien alone with his little boat. And why does she really have his moustache tattooed on her arm?
