Something to Hug

I’ve left Sydney Australia for Upstate New York and am once again experiencing winter! I keep my dogs in my bed, but stuffed animals can keep the heat almost as well. Heres some cute and cuddlies available on etsy…

Yoki the Fat Dragon
Yoki the Fat Dragon by DIYFluffies

DIY Fluffies offers PDF patterns to make your own stuffed animals. I particularly like this dragon and two little fat penguins. You can purchase and download patterns to make these yourself from her etsy store. If you’re not so handy with sewing, this same designer has a second store that sells Fluffels…jewelry and monster-y stuffed animals that come ready-made.

Genius Upcycled Fabric Plush Stuffed with Recycled Bags

Genius Fabric Plush Stuffed with Recycled Bags by Art Tales

These stuffed animals aren’t just cute but good for the environment! Each stuffed animal is made from found and repurposed fabric, rough stitched and created sans-pattern, and stuffed with plastic bags. Such a great idea! It’s nice that each animal will have its own tale to tell. Her shop is full of animals, monsters, and monster-animals. Stop by and scoop one up in her etsy store, or follow along to see whats coming on her blog.

Holiday Pogo and Sleepsack

Holiday Pogo and Sleepsack by Pogoshop

The creator of these little snuggly pogos lives in a  hand-built log home in the fores and draws on her natural setting for the creation of the stuffed pogos for sale in her etsy shop.These stuffed animals are also made from up-cycled materials, using wool sweaters and eco-friendly bamboo fiberfill.

Each one is hand-made and you won’t find any two alike so get into her shop before your favorite goes missing for christmas!

Gertie Guinea Pig

Gertie Guinea Pig by PeriwinklePark

This is another DIY plushy. Buy and download this PDF knitting pattern from the Periwinkle Park etsy store. I have little guinea pigs and I love this piggy…especially since he looks just like one of mine! I have a texel guinea pig who’s fur looks like curly sheep’s wool…this guinea pig is made with a mohair yarn. I have no idea how to knit, but if you can…go get this pattern!
