Meet the Maker – Mooshuns

Tell us a little about you and your business.

My name is Ian Thomas, I’m also commonly known as the Mooshun Man. Mooshuns are moody cushions – hand-made cushions with different expressions and moods designed to help children talk about their feelings, develop emotional intelligence and build positive mental heatlh habits. I’ve been making Mooshuns since 2009, I hand stitch the faces, use the sewing machine for the seams and then finish them by hand.

 

What do you love about your creative business?

I enjoy the processes involved in making the Mooshuns but I find the greatest reward comes from customers, especially children, who respond so positively to the products, but also adult customers who can recognise the benefits of using Mooshuns as a feelings teaching and learning tool with children.

 

What is your favourite thing to create?

My favourite thing to create would be the Variety Packs as they have the greatest potential for making a positive impact on the lives of children. Developing concepts and ideas for new Variety Pack options helps me focus on the purpose of making and selling Mooshuns and reminds me of their value.

My favourite handmade pick this week

My favourite pick this week has to be these super cute little fabric pouches / boxes from Sewn in the Cupboard! I just adore the colour combinations and the mix of faux leather, fabric and hessian.

Perfect to hold a little succulent plant, herbs for the kitchen, pens & pencils or even as a make-up holder for the bathroom.
