Mossie Handmade is a true gem! Beautiful and well crafted felt toys, shoes and decorations. Perfect for every occassion.


Nicolette van der Westhuizen’s attention to detail is what makes her felt goodies stand out. Craftmanship!

I started Mossie in March 2010. The name reflects my love for birds and the Mossie is a very humble little birdie. These two aspects, the freedom of a bird and the humble character of the Mossie are essential aspects of my business and my trademark.

From the very start it was á passion-project, which I could just pour my heart and soul into, my creativity and love for pretty things. Nothing beats making something out of nothing. 

Mossie is my first love, but like many other creatives not my main act. The Handmade in Mossie is of utmost importance to me and that is why I design, cut, saw, paste, paint and sew everything myself. I am just not at a place where I feel I can trust anyone else because it so personal, a project started from just an idea growing into this beautiful business. I just love being so involved in every order and every new creation.

My hope is that my craftsmanship will sell itself, that my creations, made with so much love and so much attention will be recognised and appreciated.


To add that extra dimension to a themed party she can custom make garlands and food toppers to repeat the theme.


Who doesn’t want their own little mermaid? Perfectly crafted, pastel coloured and soft felt toys will brighten up your child’s room and party. Any theme you can think of, Mossie Handmade can make it for you.


It’s easy to order and all of her beautiful creations can be viewed on Instagram and you can place your orders via email, anywhere in South Africa
