Note from shop owner Hi! Thanks for visiting. We just moved to Tucson and Lily & Gus will be closed until we get set up in our new house. My shop will re-open later in the Fall. Thank you for your patience. You can still find me at www.lilyandgus.com but please be patient with me as orders will take extra time to process during our move.

This is soooo sweet. Thank you. I haven't given it to my daughter yet, her birthday is Saturday, but I know she will love it. I can tell it was made with love. Thank you.

About

Unexpected, Repurposed, One of a kind. Goodies for little ones!

I started designing plush animals and clothes to go with some of my daughter Lily's favorite words (rhino, whale, octopus) and it has blossomed into a shop as I decided to share our favorites with others. I love getting to know a little about the people I am creating for so that I can make their items more personal, so send me a note so I can get to know you!

All of my plush items are made using repurposed fabrics (from denim to wool) and lovingly constructed from my own designs. Each plush toy is unique and has surprise embellishments taken from the original clothing items (beautiful stitching, a fun tag, a touch of suede).

Each of my clothing pieces starts with an original design that I hand draw on the cloth using a dye resist technique and hand dye using bright high quality fiber reactive dyes.

I love what I do and I create each item I sell with love and care. I hope that you love them as much as we do!

    Hi! I'm a work at home mom who spends her days chasing after an adorable daughter (Lily) & dachshund (Gus). I squeeze in time for designing & creating between making mud pies & enjoying epic adventures in the park.
