The create-a-creature shop is currently closed due to a recent move and a new job. I hope to reopen sometime in 2014. Please come back in a few months or email me if you would like to be contacted when the shop is open again.
Create your own stuffed friend! Bring a child’s drawing to life! Create a keepsake for that special someone!
I love to bring a child’s artwork to life! When you send me a drawing I work hard to create a soft, cuddly friend that matches their vision as closely as possible. Recipients of these fuzzy friends have been amazed to see their drawings come to life – right down to the tiny details! These creatures are a good size (at least 16″ tall or wide) so they make great huggable companions.
I also will make your creature to order – if you’d like a different colour, if you want to change a detail, if you want it bigger, or smaller, or embroidered with a name, just let me know!
The creatures are made entirely of soft polar fleece and stuffed with fiberfill. However, I also work with other materials upon request. This is your creation and I want you to love it.
How it Works
You email me a copy of the drawing, along with any special instructions or extra details
I get back to you with a price. Most creatures will be between $80 – $150, depending on their complexity.
If you are happy with the price, I will send you a Paypal invoice for the cost, plus shipping. Canadian customers also have the option of paying by e-Transfer.
(Customers who live locally are welcome to pick up their orders and to pay by cash, if you prefer. Just let me know when you contact me!)
Once you have paid, the creation process begins.
When your creature is finished, I will be send you photos before I tuck them in a box and send them off to their new home!
From drawing to completed creature the process usually takes 4 weeks. If I’m already working on a number of orders I will add your project to the list and let you know the estimated completion date. If you’re in a hurry, let me know as I am sometimes able to accommodate rush orders.

Custom creatures can also be purchased through my Etsy Store.

“My nephew loved the custom stuffed animal Andrea created! Andrea was clear about her timeline and did an amazing job.”
“Andrea did an amazing job on the creature, and she turned the whole thing around remarkably quickly–I needed it express, and she was able to make it from design to finished product–and get it shipped from rural Canada–ahead of my own schedule. An awesome seller!”
“Andrea was great at communication, and the recipient loved the gift! ”
