A bespoke and handcrafted crochet soft toy head created from photographs of your furry companion, lovingly mounted on a hanging embroidery hoop.
**IMPORTANT MESSAGE: We are not taking orders until SEPTEMBER 2023 as we are taking maternity leave for our first child, our miracle baby after 10 years waiting! We thank you for your patience and understanding, and look forward to working on your special gifts in 2023 :) **
Gift certificates can be provided at your request.
Use as a special decorative item, keepsake or memorial item to treasure forever. Whether would just love a forever version of your pet or you are grieving the loss of your furry companion, this item is a great gift choice for any animal lover.
Each personalised 'trophy style' pet head creation is totally one of a kind, just like any doggy family member, as no patterns are used during making. These handmade crochet pet heads are made with love, care and attention to detail and totally unique. They are easily wall mounted and a wonderful decorative addition to your home.
Each mounted pet head is made in a colour palette suitably close to your pet's natural colouration and tones. Yarn will be selected from my collection and matched on colour and texture to help create a likeness of your pet.
We can also make other pets too! We are happy to make cats, horses, rabbits etc. Please contact us before ordering if you're not sure but we have had commissions of all sorts of pets - even parrots and a bison!
You can choose the background colour of your pet trophy head too! Just select from the colour palettes available in the image gallery, or choose an individual colour or combination from the colour photo to suit your decor and pet.
To obtain as much detail as possible, please include images of your pet when you place your order by sending these through the 'contact the seller' button in your order enquiry. Please include details unique to your pet such as a special shaped patch or an ear that bends in a strange way!
Every attempt is made to get all details of your pet included, but please remember, we can only include what we can see from photographs and what you tell me about your gorgeous pet!
Please note that processing times are applicable AFTER suitable images are received. We cannot begin creating your order until we have images of your pet. A delay sending images will result in a delay processing and receving your order.
Due to the bespoke nature of these products, sizes can vary dependent on the breed. All measurements are approximate.
The large embroidery hoops are 20cm diameter and the heads fit within that size, as pictured.
The medium embroidery hoops are 15cm diameter and the heads fit within that size.
The small embroidery hoops are 10cm diameter and the heads fit within that size.
Dependent on colouration, a variety of manmade fibres and yarns are used. We rarely use natural fibres, but we can avoid using natural yarns such as wool and alpaca on your request.
Each head will have two safety eyes. Some toys will have a safety nose dependent on the artistic choices made when creating your pet.
Recommended care: sponge clean with a damp cloth. Always dry naturally. For best results dust regularly with a soft bristled hoover attachment. NEVER comb or brush the yarn on your pet head.
