Tiny felted cookies. Tiny felted stockings. Tiny woven winter sweaters. Itty bitty lights and paper garlands. A cozy glowing fire made from fluffy textiles and light.

Based on concepts by illustrator and co-director Phoebe Wahl, stop-motion animator Andrea Love makes the holiday season come alive with these heartfelt needle-felted scenes for Merry Christmas, Happy New Year, a music video for Ingrid Michaelson and Zooey Deschanel. (They’re the ice skating mice.)
