About

It's a zoo in here!

When I was a little girl, I had a vast array of stuffed animals that were literally spilling out of my closet. Sea creatures, safari creatures, dinosaurs, birds, kitty cats, and bears-- no animal was considered too unusual to be a special friend. I loved them all. Even though I no longer have a closet spilling with toys, that love of the animal kingdom has carried on well into adulthood. But that love didn't get to fully express itself until I discovered in December of 2012 that I enjoy sewing, when I put together just a few small felt animal ornaments for a local shop. Encouraged by a good friend, I started making larger stuffed animals and from there they have been nurtured into a diverse zoo. I guess you could say my studio has become like my closet years later, overflowing with all kinds of animal friends that you can share with your loved ones.

    I combine my passion for creating and bringing others joy to make unique animal friends for your little ones. When I'm not at my sewing table, I'm playing with my own little and spending quality time with my husband in South New Jersey.

Additional policies and FAQs
Since By Yivvie animals are made of felt fabric and are hand sewn, they are not made for rough or outdoor play. Animals are not suited for the washing machine or dryer, and should only be spot-cleaned. You may experience some warping of the material so use a gentle hand while cleaning.

All animals come from a smoke-free home.
My studio is cat-friendly, but I try to keep fabrics and other materials as clean as possible.

Because each item is handmade, there will be slight variations between items.

Sending a gift?
Simply provide the recipient's address and name and any details you would like to include like a simple card or cute wrapping. Please be sure to order a gift to accommodate shipping via the US Postal Service (typically, 3-5 business days).
