Deelind Studios

Time for the third installment of feature entries. The shop I'm featuring tonight snuck in a little if something happens... comment, so I just had to feature them. So, I present to you...


Deelind Studios

Deelind Studios make these wonderful little plushies, or "stuffies" as they're called in her shop. They're made with super soft materials and are oh so cute!

Deelind Studios calls Boston her home. Being from the area, I can't think of a more creative place! According to her profile, she woke up one morning and made the decision to start making stuffed animals. She created her own patterns, dug out her grandmother's 1940 sewing machine and went to town. Soon after the stuffies babies were born!

With creativity that seems to be oozing, it should come as no surprise that Deelind has another shop. Babalu shows off Deelind's talent as an artist (http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=5373741). For the 20 years leading up to sewing stuffies, Deelind was a fine art painter and a muralist. Her talent really shines through in her Babalu shop!




I have to say that this guy is my personal favorite from Deelind's shop. As the title calls him, "Butt Ugly Bunny with Free Love," I think he's so ugly that he's cute. This little dude has a body of fleece and ears of velvet.

Now, because Deelind is lucky for this feature to turn into a 2 for 1, I couldn't neglect her Babalu shop. I think that this oil painting shows off the incredible talent the flows through her fingers. This oil is called Provance and it's painted on gallery wrapped canvas.

So now that you've learned a bit about this multi-talented artist, please stop by and browse her shops to show some free love!
