fellt animal

In 2007 I made my first stuffed animal, a red horse, out of red polyester craft felt from my own pattern. I have been making animals ever since, and I've created cats, dragons, rabbits, and seahorses as well.

Today, my animals are made from high-quality wool felt and embroidered with wool and cotton threads. I am a biologist by day (I work with marine algae), and my animal designs are often inspired by the natural world, particularly my seahorses. I also take pride in the unique poses I've developed, particularly my prancing horses, and I love bringing each unique creation to life!floydine

Surprisingly, this exact hobby got her very first job in London and kept her employed for the next 5 years. Parallel to that  she had established her  little handmade crafting business from home and discovered polymer clay and sculpting. First as a hobby and then with much more professional attitude, sculpting very quickly took over her whole life and became visible to other crafters in social media.
