Animals and Fun Things

All the animals I make are lovingly hand knit using high quality wool, wool blends and cotton yarns. Their faces are embroidered and they are stuffed with polyester fiberfill. Some have safety eyes or tiny buttons and because of their handmade nature, may not be suitable for very young children. All of the animals are one of a kind and each develops its own personality as it is knit. If you see an animal you like, please email me with the animal’s name, your name and address and I’ll email you an invoice. Shipping costs vary, but average around $5.

Bunnies, Elephants, Foxes, Badgers, Deer, Bears: The regular sized animals are approximately 9″ tall from feet to the top of the ears (small rabbits are 7″ tall) and can stand with support, unless it’s noted that they prefer sitting. These animals are based on patterns by Little Cotton Rabbits.

    Calvin and Evan are coming into the family to be held and loved!!
    These animals have such gentle characteristics that are easy to fall in love with. ( We already have 2!)
    Their little hanging legs and the back of the heads are meant to be cradled.
    Thank you for your care and kindness in creating these gentle creatures. We love to love and share them.
