About

How Sausage Dog was born.

I have always loved making things, be it from fabric, clay, cardboard or anything I can find. I draw a lot, doodling characters and faces, this is the starting point of all my 3D creations. I started sausage Dog in 2008, after experimenting with a duck character which I made from 1960's curtain fabric. I called this wonky thing 'Carrot duck', and it was an instant hit with friends and family. So I decided to come up with a whole host of characters, and set up a business designed to make people smile.
I am a self taught toy maker, and at first the patterns were simple and slightly rough, but i liked the idea of a toy that looks a bit like a children's drawing. Since then I have designed more elaborate creatures, with interactive parts, and have recently started to make puppets.
I plan to keep making bigger, better and more ridiculous characters, specialising in one off designs, and developing the narratives and personalities behind each creation.
