Hi there! I'm Laura. I make gifts and accessories starring cheerful animal characters to delight daydreamers and optimists.
The first Fluffed Animals products were born out of a time when I was feeling drained by my busy schedule of being a full-time student and nearly-full-time grocery worker. I had a rare free evening and wanted to make something just for me, so I whipped up a little fox pillow. Oliver was a bit lumpy and unevenly sewn, but he made me smile, and that’s all I needed in that moment.
Later, I would create a raccoon named Patrick so Oliver wouldn’t be lonely. I knew right away that this was exactly what I needed to be doing, and I’ve spent the last eight years developing new products starring these sweet animal friends.
I know from personal experience how bruising the world’s hard edges can be for dreamers. It’s my hope that these friends will be there for you, to quietly encourage you and remind you that you’re not alone.
Q&A with Fluffed Animals
Question: Who designs your products?
Answer: All of our items are handmade and designed by our founder, Laura Fisher.
Question: How would you describe your own style?
Answer: I would have to say quirky and colourful. I do think this is somewhat reflected in my designs, though the things I create are a bit more on the simple side.
Question: Please tell me about the creative process that went into your current collection.
Answer: I usually begin with my sketchbook. I use combinations of fleece, felt and flannel, depending on what I’m making, and I work mostly with hand-stitching and my sewing machine.
