When I was little, I loved everything cute and squishy and huggable but my mother was very strict and would never buy me any stuffed animals. So what is a little girl to do? My grandmother had taught me to crochet and sew by hand so I gathered some cheap felt and yarn and started sewing and crocheting my own stuffed toys. They were ugly and it was frustrating to make them on my own, but I was always so proud of the bunnies and cats I made.
Eventually, after much trial and error, I figured out my own patterns and sewed and crocheted plushies for my friends' birthday presents ever since. Making plushies and gifting them to my friends has always been such a joy for me and I love the challenge of making something just for someone that you know they will love. Now, I still love making custom plushies for my customers for their special loved ones.
