Cute, personality-filled handmade plush friends to love

Martinez, Georgia | 20 Sales

Announcement    Welcome to Sloth and Squid! Here you'll find adorable, personality-filled handmade plush friends to snuggle and love. You may call them plushies, stuffed animals, stuffies, or lovies; whatever you call them, we have a variety of fun characters to choose from, both real and fictional, to play with and cuddle.

Unfortunately, I am currently extremely busy with school and other obligations until May at the earliest. I'll try to update when I have enough time to work on plushies or anything else for the shop.

I do the main construction of the plushies, and my girlfriend helps with the handsewing. She also designed the shop's logo. I plan to branch out eventually when I have the time, but for now, the main product is plushy friends to love!

A story of polyfil stuffing and love.

My girlfriend and I were talking one evening about squids, and I found a pattern for an 8 foot long squid. The next day, we bought the supplies to make it, including a 10 pound box of polyfil stuffing. Anyone who's worked with polyfil can probably predict the next part: the squid was done and we'd barely made a dent in the amount of stuffing we still had!
I looked around for free plushy patterns, since I'm a broke college student, and I found Choly Knight's adorable plushies. I had enough fabric left over from the squid (who has been christened Aesnith!) to make a narwhal, so I did. And then I helped my girlfriend's daughter make one, and I thought, "Well, if we can find good prices for fabric, maybe I'll just make a bunch of plushies and sell them." We found good prices for fabric, obviously.

The shop name was kind of obvious to me. I love sloths, even going so far as to have an Instagram for my favorite plush sloth, Cinnamon. And this whole adventure started with a squid, so it just seemed natural to acknowledge that.

I do the main construction of the plushies, and my girlfriend helps with the handsewing. She also designed the shop's logo. I plan to branch out into fidget toys and bags eventually, but for now, the main product is plushy friends to love!
