About

Welcome to WhimZee Girls, purveyor of handmade teddy bears.

This shop is a cooperation between my mom (Sheila) and me (Laura).

We make things that appeal to us-- ‘cause, really, if we don’t love them, how can we expect you to? In fact, that's how this all got started.

My mom grew up admiring a special quilt made by her grandmother. Our whole family loved this quilt, but it could only be in one place at a time, and parts of it were pretty worn. Mom wanted my grandma, my aunt, my sister and I all to have a part of it... so she took our beloved heirloom and crafted it into five teddy bears!
When people saw the bears, they asked if Mom could make one for them, too. She began getting requests to make bears for baby showers, wedding gifts, and people who just wanted one to brighten up their own homes. The recipients of these bears range from tiny babies to blushing brides to mega sports fans.She's been been making them for about 14 years now, and we're delighted to share the fluffy, cuddly joy with you!

  • Sheila

    Owner, Creator

    Sheila started sewing in middle school and has been hooked ever since. The first thing she ever sewed was a potholder with a crying clown embroidered on it (I'm not sure what the significance of that was, but you can ask her if you want to).

  • Laura

    Owner, Customer Service, Marketer

    Laura is Sheila's daughter. She is a stay-at-home college student who likes art, history, and Biology. Also cookies.
