Handmade Softie by Handmaid by Helen Hedding

About Zippermouth
Zippermouth is made from a combination of Italian red wool coatings for his arms and legs with Portuguese men’s shirting fabrics patchworked together to form his body. Both fabrics were upcycled from Helen’s days as a textile agent, so he is rather well travelled! His mouth opens with a zip and he is stuffed with polyfill fibre so he is squishy enough for a big cuddle.

About Handmaid by Helen Hedding
Helen has been sewing for a very long time and studied Fashion at RMIT in Melbourne. After a stints working as a designer, manufacturer and textile agent she branched out on her own to make designer handbags. These days she concentrates mainly on toys as she finds they bring so much joy and are good for the soul. You can find Helen’s creations on Etsy or Madeit, and at the occasional market. You can also visit her at her studio in Magill Adelaide.

Thanks for the memories...
