Grand Opening

Welcome to the kindplush workshop!

Here, I will be documenting my adventures in plushie making. I am creating all-original designs, and making everything from start to finish by hand.

My inspiration comes from a time when toys were not mass-produced. Every item was a labor of love, and the individual animal took on its own personality.

Today, toys have become so impersonal. They are churned out of factories by the thousands, without attention to detail. They are branded with corporate logos, and have no living energy inside them.

Children's rooms are stuffed with these mass-produced critters - very few of them are special, or have sentimental value.

I let each stitch bring the animal to life. 

My designs are simple to encourage imagination.  I don't want to tell a story with my creations - I want others to tell their own story with them.

 My mission is to create toys to be loved - toys that you instinctively know are special.

I am also excited to announce that I am making custom plushies from kids' original drawings!

It is a lot of fun to turn these pictures into three-dimensional stuffed animals. This is a wonderful way to preserve a special memory. Makes a great gift for kids and adults alike.

Please visit my Etsy shop for more pictures, and information!

I will be working on new designs every day, so please check back often for new creations.
Thanks for taking the time to read this post!

Be Kind!
