I purchased several of these awesome critters for Christmas gifts and feel in love. I then met with their creator and commissioned a couple. In the picture you see mini Pastor Cathy and Mini Ms Carrie with their human counterparts. I can not begin to tell you how much joy these minis and their friends are bringing my church. I wish I could share more pictures as they go on Lutheran adventures every week. They are awesome! On a more logistical note, the crafter listened to my ideas and created exactly what I wanted quicker than i could have imagined. Thanks!! Carrie

Soo cute! Seller was very helpful in letting me know this would arrive on time. Happy to be able to gift my niece this special handmade elephant for her birthday.

Every toy should be one-of-a-kind.

I know a lot of other parents share my frustration - you'll look around your kid's room and see a sea of generic plastic junk - infinitely disposable. Every six months I could fill a piñata with the plastic junk that sneaks into my house from birthday parties and impulse buys.

Toys should be treasured, special. Your child should have a connection with their stuffed animals - a bond.

I started slowly, three or four years ago, crocheting scarves for my daughter's stuffed animals. I wanted to give them some personality. But I got bored fast. One rectangle after another. It could make a person go mad!

So I expanded - owls, lions, crocodiles, monkeys. I'm always looking for the next creature, the next challenge. I also gladly accept custom orders - because your toy shouldn't be a generic, mass-produced piece of merchandise that is going to end up in the trash or donation bin in a few months.

If you're looking for me out and about in the world, I'm local to Washington, DC. Follow me on Instagram and Twitter to see where I'll be next.

I've loved to create beautiful things out of ordinary items for as long as I can remember. I've dabbled in scrapbooking, beading, and decoupage. But I am now totally and completely obsessed with crochet. (Nerd alert!)
