About SirWinslowsZoo

Sir Winslow discovered the animals and I recreate them!

In the early 20th century, there lived a man named Sir Winslow Smythe. Sir Smythe was a professor of zoology at Oxford University. He traveled the world in search of unusual animals and finally to the British colony of India. He wanted to study Bengal tiger color patterns and to count their stripes. While there, he contracted malaria. His doctor insisted he move back to a cooler climate.

When he was finally settled back home at Windy Willows, Sir Winslow decided to gather his notes, his expedition logs, and other items and write his memoirs. Even though he was never officially published I have kept all of these treasures.

The animal pillows and pencil cases are created from the stories he collected and the sketches Sir Winslow drew while on his many adventures around the world.

    I have been sewing since I was 8 or 9. My grandma taught me and we started out with clothes for my doll. She also taught me quilting and how to make my own clothes. The animals in the zoo came along many years later!
