Tomorrow (Sunday March 11th) we will begin to accept orders for custom stuffed dinosaurs in our Etsy shop. The shop will be restocked at 12 pm eastern time tomorrow - you can visit the shop here.
Dinosaurs can be made out of a single long sleeved sleeper but I do think they would be even better if made from more than one garment to allow for contrast on the spikes that run down the dino's back. I will add a sizing guide for these on the how to order page as more of them are made, they tend to be about the same size as the finished elephants, so a bit smaller than the bears on average.
We are working on testing some patterns for other frequent animal requests including monkeys, bunnies, owls and more. If and when these work out we will add them to the shop too!
You never know when a loved one might slip away forever. The photo below is the very last photo I took of Pepper on Monday afternoon. This is the view from my sewing room and it just won't be the same without Pepper in it from now on.

Yesterday we said a very sudden and unexpected goodbye to our ten year old Pit Bull Pepper. She was an athlete, a firecracker, and absolutely loved everyone. She lived every moment of her life with a smile on her face and never once had a bad day. Her attitude is one I hope to learn to emulate more.
Having worked for many years as an emergency and critical care licensed veterinary technician I have held the paw of many dogs who have passed away, it is always sad and particularly devastating when that paw belongs to a pup you've loved for so long. Pepper collapsed suddenly at breakfast and despite immediately beginning CPR I was unable to resuscitate her. Because she passed away without any warning signs we elected to have a necropsy performed to hopefully bring us some closure.
Below are a variety of photos of Pepper doing what she loved. I'm sure she's happily chasing a lure over the bridge with all of the other pit bulls we've loved and lost over the years.
The newest giveaway is now up! This week we are going to be giving away a brand new sleeper elephant along with a matching brand new size 6 months sleeper as seen in the photo above. We support bleeding disorder awareness month and we are helping to educate the public about these disorders by sharing the National Hemophilia Foundation's Red Tie Campaign. To enter this giveaway you must sign the petition at the Red Tie Campaign linked below.

Hemophilia has personally affected my family and continues to impact me on a daily basis. Once you've signed the petition at the following link please fill out the entry form below. A random number generator will be used to select a winner from eligible entries on Tuesday March 13th. Best of luck and thank you for spreading awareness about bleeding disorders!

The Etsy shop is back open and we have resumed taking limited orders for the month of March. The stuffed animal slots sold out very quickly when we stocked the shop today. We will continue to restock the Etsy shop each week at 12 pm eastern time with about 5 slots per week for the month of March. Visit and favorite the Etsy shop here so you can be notified when items are added. Thanks to everyone who ordered and we appreciate everyone's patience as we try to get everyone who is interested in a custom stuffed animal accommodated during this season of stuffed animal sales.
We have another giveaway for one of our sewing projects. This is a test bunny made of new fleece, stuffed with polyfill and has a little white faux fur for the tail. It is not pose-able (it is faux jointed.) Since it was just a test creation it was not weighted/counter weighted so it will only stand if it is propped up against something. To enter make sure you like the farm facebook page and fill out the form below. A winner will be randomly selected on Thursday March 1, 2018 from eligible entries. We will not share your email address, it is kept private and only used to contact the winner.
Update 3/1/2018: Congrats to Jessie Rose Langone our winner! You have been emailed!
You all voted and now she's named! Officially introducing Clementine! The spokes rabbit for her breed here on our farm.
And in about 2 weeks on March 4, 2018 at 12 pm eastern time I will reopen the Etsy shop and resume taking limited orders for sleeper bears.
We made some custom fabric on spoonflower and have enough extra to sell a few finished purses. Please e-mail the farm at email@example.com if you're interested in purchasing one.
The purse is about 7" x 7" and has one exterior slip pocket. It has silver swivel hooks, d-rings and magnetic closure clasp. The strap is adjustable vinyl so it can be worn cross body style or over the shoulder. It is lined in black cotton and faced in vinyl and cotton. Price is $45.00 each which includes shipping within the USA!
We are giving away one of our real fur bunnies! This bunny is approximately 6" tall and 6" long with a fully jointed neck. It was made with a pelt from one of our mature Creme D'Argent rabbits. It is stuffed with polyfill, has glass eyes, and was completely hand sewn. We do not recommend it be played with roughly, display would suit it better. To be eligible to enter this giveaway contest you must do the following:
1. LIKE our farm facebook page which can be done by clicking here.
2. Fill out the form below.
ONLY entries of farm facebook fans will be considered so make sure that you have liked the farm page, we will be confirming this when we pick a winner. A winner will be selected by random number generator from eligible entries announced both here and on our farm facebook page on Valentine's Day - February 14th!
Other important facts: We will not share your e-mail address with anyone, it is private and only used for this contest to contact the winner. Only one entry will be considered per person!
Thank you to everyone who has entered, the entries are closed and a winner has been selected!

Clementine is the winning name! She got her chin nicked and once that has healed up we'll take a new photo celebrating her name!
Thank you to everyone who voted and suggested names!
