The Plush Team Welcomes...

It's that time again and the Plush Team would like to welcome its newest members. Drum roll, please....

LEFTZ (pronounced le-ft-e's)
Etsy Name: ArtTales


LEFTZ's creator uses upcycled material from yard sales, thrift shops, and family. Then, the eco friendly plushies are stuffed with recycled plastic shopping bags! Their good eyes are made from layered vintage buttons and the missing left eyes are rumored to be punched out when these cuties are "brought to life."

ChunkyChooky


ChunkyChooky is another environmentally conscious plush maker who uses recycled fabric from a neighbor (a furniture upholsterer), vintage fabric, organic cotton, remnants from local Australian designers, wool felt or eco felt, and upcycled clothing from friends' wardrobes.

Cronopia6


Cronopia6 (aka Moira) loves design, art, crafts and anything that allows her to create/make her ideas tangible. She works mainly with felt and fabric y se habla espaƱol!

GourmetAmigurumi


Beth Doherty is a life-long Chicagoan who received her B.A. in Fine Art from Columbia College in 2002. Since abandoning painting for fiber art a few short years ago, she has been at the forefront of developing the Japanese form of needlework, known as amigurumi, into a fine art form. Her work began as dolls but has evolved into what are more accurately described as small soft sculptures.

Tyler Poncho Toys
Etsy Name: Kaeti6


Made up of Kaeti Lindquist and Tyler Poncho, Tyler Poncho Toys is a Madison, WI area stuffed toy producer offering quirky, safe products, made in the USA! Every toy is an original design by Tyler Poncho.
Because the two consider mainstream stuffed animals a bit dull, they started making their own. They've been keeping things interesting (like revamped traditional teddy bears) ever since!

PlushroomSoup


PlushroomSoup's real name is Jessica, and she is a self-taught designer who loves fairy tales, mythology, nature, and the moon. PlushroomSoup is the result of combining Jessica's sewing skills with much daydreaming and a little wine.

On behalf of the Plush Team and our readers, welcome to the team! We look forward to seeing more of your work!
