Handcrafted Patterns

All of our sewing patterns are created from our own original designs. Stuffed animals, plushies, soft toys, poppets—whatever you call them, you won’t find these cuddly creepers anywhere else.

The Tiniest Animal in the Kingdom

Did you know that tardigrades can survive the vacuum of space? Or that they’re actually closely related to arthropods like lobsters and centipedes? These water bears aren’t as squishy as they look. They're covered in an outer cuticle that they shed to grow, just like an exoskeleton. They have claws to help them cling to surfaces, and they suck nutrients out of plants and microorganisms through their snout, called a bucco pharyngeal apparatus. There are over 1,000 species of tardigrades found all over the world, maybe even in your backyard! They live in water and damp moss, and are typically about 1mm in length.

A Tardigrade of Your Own

This cozy water bear can survive space but prefers to stay snuggled in bed, thanks. Unlike its real-life inspiration, this tardigrade is soft and squishy and about 16 inches in length. Cuddle up to the toughest little cutie in our solar system.

Pick Your Kit

Each plush comes in three different kits to fit your budget. If the Sewing Pattern is more than you want to tackle, pick the DIY Kit for everything you need in one box. Or forget DIY and go with a Finished Plush for a fully assembled poppet ready to hit the convention floor. Whichever route you choose, this little moss piglet will go "Whee!" all the way home.
