Every day throughout our 6 Weeks of LOVE for Softies we’ll share a favorite softie. These talented plush and doll artists design and sew beautiful, whimsical, cute or quirky softies, and inspire us with their creativity.

Jen Gubicza of Zooguu Handmade Plush Toys

First up is Jen Gubicza of Zooguu Handmade Plush Toys! Her Zooguu Giraffe Wall Art is part of a series of faux taxidermy. Everything Jen makes is from an original pattern that she designs, handmade in her own studio. She also sells patterns on zooguu.com, Craftsy and Etsy. Take a look at Zooguu!
