Because who doesn't love penguins? I was inspired to design these penguins a few years ago when I was making softies for an upcoming show and wanted something that would be holiday-themed without being exclusively confined to the holidays. I figured penguins would make cute plush that would make folks think of winter without spelling out any specific holiday. And these penguins are such a hit with the wees, with their lovely tactile qualities and rounded contours. Littles love to grab 'em!

Born and raised in New York (Queens, yo!), I come from a line of seamstresses from Puerto Rico. I've been making stuff since I was a wee. I went on to study Illustration at Parsons but grew disenchanted with the cut-throat competitive aspect of making art for hire. I rediscovered my passion for playing with form, space, and color when I started sewing. Inspired by the world of zakka blogs and the quilters of Gees Bend (whose work I was introduced to at the High Museum in Atlanta during an awesome road trip), I started making soft toys and playing with patchwork. Eventually, thanks to Denyse Schmidt's first book, I discovered my true love - quilting. Presently, I live in Cambridge, MA, and teach quilting and patchwork at Gather Here. I design softie and quilt patterns, and I love to make neat stuff!
