New Member Introduction



We would like to welcome Scottie from Tiddlywinks to The Plush Team.

ThePixels: First I just want to say it's great to have you on board and I'm a secret admirer of your beautiful work. Please tell us a little about the name Tiddlywinks, and where the whole idea for your plushies came from?

Scottie: I chose the name Tiddlywinks cause sounds like childhood to me. Everyone of my dolls is made to be played with, and is something I believe I would have played with when I was little.

TP: What was that made you start creating your dolls and what inspires the variety of your creations?

S: My dolls are inspired by my kids. They make the most wonderful drawings for me. When I started making Tiddlywinks dolls, they were fashioned directly from pictures my son had made me. The patterns have become a little more streamlined as I go on, but I still run all new designs by them for approval.



TP: How does the typical day look for Tiddlywinks dolls creator?

S: Chaotic mostly. My kids are 7, 4 and 2 (soon to be 3). I'm up with the sun, and up long after it goes back down. I squeeze sewing in between diapers, pull-ups, naps, snacks, breakdowns, swimming, laughing, screaming, creating, bathing, bickering, cuddling...all that good stuff

TP: Name 3 favorite fairy tale characters.

S: Pinocchio (If only they could all be real)
Cinderella
Dumbo (Is that a fairy tale?)


TP: What are your biggest goals or plans for the future involving your creations?

S: I wish I had a goal. I just make the dolls that come to mind and those requested and hope they sell. I love sewing and would make the little buggers weather I could unload them on the world or not. I've been lucky so far, I guess my goal would be to keep it up.

TP: And lastly, any words of wisdom or inspiration?

S: Love what you do and the rest will just fall into place. :)
