Are You Still Not Agree That You Can Create The Best Puppy In The World?

Anna Terehova
I created my first miniature teddies of minishtof and Soviet plush. They were about 11 cm tall, and these materials seemed unsuitable. Result wasn’t such as I wanted. After that I found special fabrics for the miniature teddies but had an unsuccessful experience with them. It was hard to make details straight. And in that time Sveta announced her workshop! I was so happy! On the appointed day I was sitting at the big table with another girls and under Sveta’s strict guidance learn how to work with fabric for miniature teddies! And most importantly I did it. After the workshop I had not only wonderful elly sewed by Sveta’s pattern but a lot of knowledge, features, tips and hips about making miniature and bigger teddies!

I visited two Sveta’s workshop about elly and piggy. She is a strict teacher but explain everything in details, step by step. In the end of the lesson everyone go home tired but happy and with little adorable friend in the hands.

Natasha Korneeva
Sure Sveta’s workshop helped me! More like helped. She taught me to cut proportional bears. She told me how to find place for the eyes and ears, so they were on the same level. She suggest me about pile direction. Without this knowledge I would still be sewing wry toys, each time wondering why they are twisted in different directions after stuffing. Sveta taught me how to avoid cavities during the stuffing. She taught me embroider the nose and pour pellets in the right way. I am saying that absolutely sincerely! I visited a several workshops, and I love people who shared with me their knowledge and experience, but most of all I learned in Sveta’s one!

So, what you buy:
