Photo of the Day May 8, 2012: Sweatertoys

The thing about this sweet pink hippo from Sweatertoys, the brown elephant, and the red squirrel, is that they seem so soulful. They have expressions and characters all their own. And because they are handmade from the softest of recycled sweaters and vintage fabrics, each little animal is one-of-a kind.

Designer and maker Caitlin Wicker has been making these toys for the past six years out of her Brooklyn home. Check out her website to see more of her Forest Friends and remarkable Sea Creatures Collections. She has started selling patterns too so that you can make your own fuzzy bunny out of an old favorite sweater.

Meet Caitlin and her lovely creatures in person at the upcoming New York Etsy Street Team Spring Crafts in Chelsea event on Saturday, May 19th (on 21st Street between 8t & 9th Avenues)!
