Plush Animal Lover's Day 2016

  • Happy Plush Animal Lover's Day!

    Plush Animal Lover's Day is a day of celebration that is held every year on October 28 to show your favorite stuffed toy some extra special love and appreciation.

    History of the day 

    Urban Legend says the day first came about after a collectibles dealer named Royal Selangor came up with the idea of a Teddy Bears Picnic Day in the late 80's. Other stuffed toys became jealous that Teddy Bears were being singled out for their own celebration and demanded a special day all of their own! Not long after, Plush Animal Lovers Day quickly replaced Teddy Bears Picnic Day in popularity!

    How to celebrate

    Take this day to show your favorite toy just how much they have been loved in all the time you've been together, and remember ~ a stuffed toy is for life!

Creative Process

I woke up like this. ~ sock monkey ๐Ÿ™ˆ

Today's creative process...

Cutting out white felt circles to back the button eyes, and going with a light grey felt for the heart. I've chosen the perfect little daisy~like flower in Barbie doll pink to stitch on the heart! ๐Ÿ’Ÿ
