in the year 2006 i moved to prague and get a gift from my mum a book called "how to sew a teddybears " ... and so it began. the very first idea was to make teddys for my friends. just for joy. i kept the first teddy for myself and named her HOPE. when i now look at her, she seems to me kinda non-professionaly made, but she is still precious to me. she is the first one!
..but my hands and heart both wanted to create, so i continued sewing teddys not just for friends, but also for people, who i do not know (yet). first it was hard to say them goodbye, they are like my babies. but it always makes me happy, when i see people smiling and if i get a photo, i know, where my toys are home in, who cares for them and how they LIVE. still i see how my work is not perfect, but when the people come back to me, i say to myself, that it is worth it.

each one of my "puppets" is original, i never make two of a kind - including names, i never give the same name. i use old fabrics to use everything effectively. new fabrics i use only rarely, only if it inspires me for a concrete idea. all above i try to recycle everything available. as a filling i use foam rubber, so it is easy to wash. i use safety-eye-buttons or normal buttons. some of my teddys are not suitable for kids under three years of age, since there is a danger of swallowing small pieces. it is always possible to contact me and ask me to a just the teddy for small children.

sometimes i sew bags, make-up bags, clothes, brooches and i love DIY.
i also do special orders, so if you have any special idea, please write me and we can manage something together...

...every toy made by me takes to your home also piece of my heart, therefore i would be happy, when you send me a picture, that i know, where she/he LIVES...
i give her/him the form and name, and the rest of the story is up to YOU!
