About HuggableFriends

Sales 2,358
On Etsy since 2011

Hobby Turned Business

I like to change hobbies and learn new things. Our first son was born while my Husband was deployed. I wanted to use some of my free time to teach myself how to sew and had this idea in mind about making my own bibs and blankets and such. I started out by making toys for my cats as I taught myself how to sew with my new machine. The first mouse looked like Frankenstein! I got better with time and opened up an Etsy shop. A few months after that I bought an embroidery machine.

I started out with the shop name, "Created By Laurie" since I made a variety of items for children. With time I was hooked and driven to make stuffed animals. It's what I enjoy. I love hearing about why the customer wants a custom item, and then to hear about how happy the person was when they received it. It's a real good feeling. :)

Since focusing on stuffed animals, I changed my shop name to "Huggable Friends". I think it fits much better and explains what I sell. It also ties into my 'sister shop', "Huggable Patterns" which sells my own designs and patterns.

It has been a fun journey developing my shop and watching it grow!
