Fluffmonger Children’s Book

I recently completed a ten-week course on running a startup business, and I took a bit of a break from designing during that time. While I learned a lot from the course, one of the main things I took away was that I needed to follow through with something my gut had been telling me to […]

A New Friend – Smuggles the Otter!

With two handmade markets coming up, I wanted some new faces to display at my booth. Otters have always been on my list of favorite animals, so I took advantage of some free time over the past two weekends to work on a pattern for a stuffed otter. When I’m coming up with a new animal character, […]

A Custom Order Plus Rumpus the Bear!

A lot of times when I get a custom order, I’ll end up making a pattern that I only use once. It sometimes feels like a waste to spend days (occasionally weeks) working on a single pattern to never use it again, but I really enjoy the process of creating a new design. Plus I always end up […]

Fluffmonger Organic Baby Toys – All About the Materials

After finishing up last week’s craft fair, I had a little bit of time to work on a new Griswold the sheep organic baby toy.  The majority of my customers are adults wanting collectibles for themselves, but I still frequently sell items for babies and children.  I often get asked if my toys are safe for babies, so […]
