You’ve been known to sleep with a plush buddy every once in a while. Of course, Sir Snugglepuss gets tossed under the bed when you have a real flesh-and-blood caller to cuddle with.
For grown-up stuffed animals you’ll be proud to show off, check out Tamar Mogendorff’s luxe yet crafty creations.
She hand-stitches every critter in her menagerie from new and vintage fabrics. Special touches like antique buttons and perfectly placed embroidery (note the shimmering sequins on her latest collection) make each puppy one of a kind.
But she creates way more than dogs. Her elaborate designs include a peacock with stringy lashes and a full fan of organza feathers, a cage of pretty birds, and a dopey deer with a heart-shaped nose.
Let your love shine.
