About

From Novice to Designer

I started designing and sewing my Nuzzys four years ago while looking for a way my stay at home daughter could earn some extra money. We looked at many projects one of which was a neck pillow. None of them worked out very well. I continued to be drawn back to neck pillows. So, I decided to try one. I bought some flannel with a giraffe print and began to cut and sew. Four hours later i threw the hideous thing in the corner and moved on.

As I finished each unsuccessful project I was drawn back to giraffe and zebra neck pillows till I took a long look at the original. I came to the conclusion that it was the faces I had issued with. At that point I sat down and began the design process. I purchased a more realistic fabric, cut out the first head and MyNuzzys were born. I liked him. My family liked him. So, I designed a pony, a tiger and a leopard to go along with the giraffe. I completed twenty five of each animal only to find that my sister had not been able to find a Christmas boutique to sale them at.

Now I had one hundred nuzzys and nowhere to sale them. It was September and didn't know if I was going to find a boutique in time for the Christmas Season. I searched the internet and found the Christmas Gift and Craft Show in Spanish Fork Utah. The day before the show my daughter and sister were setting up our booth and saw the owner of the show inspecting each of the booths. She stopped at our booth looked at it and told my daughter that we would sale out before the show was over. She, herself bought ten of our animals; one for each of her grandchildren. Onother customer who bought six animals told us she had bought several of another popular stuffed animal and was taking them back to the store and giving her kids our animals instead. The owner was right, we only took four home with us.

Now four years and hundreds of animals later my daughter is still afraid of a sewing machine. So, I am the sole creator of MyNuzzys.

I hope you enjoy your nuzzy as I enjoy making them!
