A Brooklyn, NY based artist, Caitlin made her first stuffed toy to replace her sister’s favorite, but lost, pink rabbit. Now, she crafts her Sweatertoys line of stuffed animals from repurposed garments gathered from family and friends. “Several toys can be made from one sweater,” says Caitlin, “which reduces material waste.” Because her works are one-of-a-kind, they offer a charm mass-produced toys can’t match.
Sweatertoys are stuffed with high-quality polyester fiberfill and can be gently spot cleaned. Caitlin uses snap-on safety eyes, which are recommended for children 3 and older.
