"A sense of whimsy and love of color overtakes me as I design and create these huggable items. All of my handmade, one-of-a-kind, stuffed animals and décor are made from upcycled, reclaimed, and scrap fabric. For this reason, no two are ever exactly alike. Originally, all the fabric and materials were leftovers from my costume and gown making design projects. I started making owls with the scrap pieces, and the results were such a hit, that friends, family, and colleagues would start bringing me their old curtains, tablecloths, scrap fabric, you name it! From there, I’ve branched out to other woodland creatures and have plans for many others.
Never one to waste a resource, when fabric pieces are too small for use in a stuffie, they become fodder for magnets, keychains, and rag wreaths.
If you would like a different color palette or pattern than what you see online in my shop, please contact me to select custom fabric options.
