I love the way that these freehand embroidery stitches give each my plushies a slightly different expression. Every one has its own unique personality! • Snag your own in my shop if my work speaks to you - there won't be another exactly like it!

Over the years, I've worked to make all of my plushie designs work together. They all share heart-shaped faces and several other hand stitched features! Because of that, they're even cuter when you collect a bunch and display them together.
