In the last year, these absolutely adorable, homemade-style stuffed animals have become all the rage. And I have fallen for them. What I really love is that they don’t look like anything you see in stores, that they’re so charming, and that you can have them made with whatever fabrics you like, which means your (or-more likely-your child’s) toy is much more unique than most stuffed animals.
I fully intend to get some for my kids whenever they appear on the scene. Elephants, owls, foxes, and whales especially appeal to me. Below, I’ll share some of my favorites and where I found them online. Christmas is fast approaching, so I wanted to make sure these were on your radar for the kiddos and babies in your life.
