Hello from One Red Robin

I'm stoked to have become a member of this wonderful community and have been very inspired by all the posts so far. It is a thrill to see (and feel) your passion for softies and plush!

My name is Jhoanna and I live in Melbourne, Australia. I make softies under the label of One Red Robin. My 2 young daughters inspire a lot of what I make (plus I can always run my designs past them to see what they think!) My creations are also very much inspired by the Japanese 'kawaii' toy aesthetic. I have been designing and making softies for the last 2 years. The first one was made for my daughter, driven by the desire to give her something unique and one-of-a-kind. The passion to continue making little critters-with-character just grew from there.

This year I am hoping to work on a few new designs. These Doddi bears (named by my daughter) are currently in my WIP pile:

You can see more of what I make on my Flickr, or on my website.

Looking forward to seeing more of your creations!

Your stuff is great! I've been wondering, what's up in Australia ? There seems to be alot of cool plush coming from there these days. How did that come about?
