This was perfect! It's super soft and quite sizable. Came with wonderfully detailed instructions for applying the stripes, we couldn't be happier!

Received these in plenty of time to get them put together before Easter. They are so adorable and soft. The kids are going to flip when they see them. Thank you so much!

About

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!

    Born an Army Brat, and now a Navy Wife! I taught myself how to sew wanting to learn new things, and got hooked on making stuffed animals. From there my shop grew. I now enjoy creating my own designs and patterns for my 'sister' shop.
