Molly has taken over the Easter Bunny’s job. She still doesn’t know how that happened, but she is quite happy to help. She has put her bunny costume on and her false teeth and started off to hide some eggs. And eat some. And err, hide some. And… eat some? Oh dear, being the Easter Bunny is not as easy as Molly thought!
Say „Hallo“ to a lot of new motifs in our Hallo Molly shop!
Molly has taken over Cupid’s job. In the beginning she misunderstood the job description and used her bow and arrow to hunt down cats…
She was really surprised to receive so many love letters from weird felines like Dr. Purr or Professor van Fuzz afterwards. Strange.
But now she has gotten the hang of it and helps animals in love all over the world to find their purrfect match.
Happy new year, everyone! We hope you had a great Christmas and a joyful New Year’s Eve! Molly had a little adventure on vacation: She found a young seal on the beach! Thankfully the seal didn’t bite her (but to Molly’s dismay it also didn’t want to play with her) and I was able to snap a quick picture while calling Molly back. Molly said it was really exciting, she loves making new friends!
Hallo Molly has four new products now: 2.3 inches (59 mm) XL pinback button badges, fridge magnets, bottle openers with keyring and pocket mirrors, hooray!

I thought it might be nice to give you guys a „behind the scenes“ look of Hallo Molly. So this is how I make my buttons and magnets. In the beginning there’s always some inspiration, usually stuff I love ranging from TV (like Star Trek) to movies (Lord of the Rings) to „mundane“ things like bahtrooms / pools (I love swimming) and to make the girly side of me happy princesses, mermaids etc. Or my kids tell me what they want – usually really great ideas!
First I draw the outlines with a soft pencil, later with a waterproof fine liner. Afterwards the whole motif is hand colored, first with pencils, then I brighten the colors up even more by using a brush and water for my watercolor pencils. After having scanned in one of my favorite cotton fabrics I usually use for sewing for the background, I arrange the motif in Photoshop and get my button machine from the window sill. And voilà – a button or fridge magnet is born!
