I bought this for my mother in law because she saw a dead armadillo purse when she was 6 and wanted it so bad! But of course it was a real dead animal so her mom refused. Ever since then shes been obsessed with them. This was the perfect gift for her, she almost passed out from laughing and crying about how cute it looked and that she finally got to have her dead armadillo purse. Thank you so much!

It's fantastic! But, in retrospect, I should have purchased the larger one.

I'm just a girl that loves all work that encompasses yarn and fiber art.

I've been crocheting since I was a kid and learned how to knit a few years ago. I love sharing my crafts and making really awesome unique things with yarn.

It all started when I worked in a call center and read through all my books. I found a half crocheted blanket that I started for my Ma a couple years earlier. I finished that and decided to learn more about crochet. I started making stuffed animals.

My first critter was an Angry Bunny that showed my disdain for call center life. A coworker asked me what I was making and I said, "Oh, it's just my creepy critter." I told my mister about it and he said that was a great name.

Since that first bunny, I've expanded my line into many more critters, purses, accessories, sweaters, and pet toys. I pride myself on my customer service and enjoy going above and beyond for my customers.

My Creepy Critters' items have been featured in the Drop Dead Gore-geous Fashion Show in 2011 and 2012, and at the Denver Art Museum for the SPUN exhibit in 2013.

    I love foxes, hockey, beer, and yarn. I am a spunky, tattooed girl that lives with my mister of several years and our 3 cats, Meow Mix, Scout, and Wink. They all love my yarn creations and support my business.

Hi, my name is Melanie. I make things out of yarn. I have a unique line of angry stuffed animals. I call them My Creepy Critters. They're all handmade so they never look exactly the same. The button eyes may vary even if it's the same animal depending on availability.

I now make purses and items that can be worn by people! Please contact me if you don't see something in a size or color that you would like. I may be out of stock on that item color and can get it for you.

Please take a moment to look over my shop policies. If you have any questions please feel free to ask.

Additional policies and FAQs

If you find an animal that you would like for a small child without buttons please contact me. I do make baby safe animals with needle felted eyes instead of buttons. These are only available upon request. Any removable items (hats, vests wristbands) that the animals wear will still contain buttons. It is recommended that these are removed prior to giving to small children.

FOR CUSTOM ORDERS: Please allow 4-6 weeks for completion of your item prior to shipping. A non-refundable deposit of the final price will be required for any custom order.

These items come from a smoke free, pet friendly home that includes 2 loving and adorable cats that like to help me.

I do my best to keep their fur away from my items but alas, they may contain cat hair.
