I’m literally sitting here squealing over how cute these little knitted animals are! Designed and knitted by Montreal based Barbara Prime, these super sweet animals—which she calls “stuffies”—make wonderful gifts.
Barbara’s line of animals and patterns is called Fuzzy Mitten. I think what makes them so special is their old-fashioned feel, amazing detail, and overall adorableness.
“My inspiration comes from many different sources,” Barbara says. “Sometimes it’s a new yarn that just needs to be made into a particular animal. Sometimes it’s the desire to try something a little challenging, like trying to make a cute rhinoceros! Often my ideas come from friends or customers.”
As the designer, knitter, and pattern writer of these animals, Barbara encourages customers to make and sell the little guys, because as she says, “That’s how I started out.”
