All creations are made by me, Caryn. I started sewing my own hammocks for my rats on a mini sewing machine in 2015 and soon after got my Singer machine. I spent a lot of time learning and practicing sewing different types of hammocks and other small creations. Now I work on my Brother industrial machine.
I thought before about selling some of the items I had made but always ended up just sewing for my own animals, It wasn't until 2017 that the idea of making rat shaped beds came along! A lot of time went into designing and creating the cubes over many months, tweaking the size/shape and other little details.
Furrykind Creations officially began in March 2018. My Facebook, Instagram and website were all launched on the same day - starting off with a introductory giveaway and trading a week later!
I don’t have a team to help. All is done by me - including all designing, fabric cutting, machine sewing, hand sewing, eyelets, website, etc. Therefore it can take me more time to complete some items, especially items that are more intricate such as the shaped beds and bags (a original unique creations by Furrykind Creations. So you will only find them sold here!).
I strive to make good quality items with extra thickness and sewing support & I like to make improvements on my creations where I can.
I aim for quality over quantity!
All creations here are made with multiple layers of fabric and extra support stitching (either inside or outside, depending on the item).
This photo (left) shows the extra stitching that’s inside the bags. Often hard to photo once they’re put together.. but it’s in there!
The bags for example are 4 layers of fleece (5 layers on the base & face too on the shaped ones) and also a layer of wadding all inside!
