Etsy Spotlight & Giveaway: Suze Loves Spazzy Wonder!


I love Spazzy Wonder. The owner, Millie, makes beautiful plushies.


She describes them as cute and cheerful and that's exactly what they are.


They're skillfully made and I think they're stunning!


This store is the perfect place to shop for any kawaii lover.


I love Millie's colorful creations. She pays attention to every little detail.


All of her plushies are special.


I've asked Millie a few questions to find out more about her and her shop:

1) When/how did your Etsy adventure start?

I was home a lot due to my Lupus and rheumatoid arthritis so I did crafts to fill my free time. One day my mother bought me a bunch of felt that she found on sale so I started looking around online to see what projects I could find and I came across Etsy. I was amazed at all the things people we’re making and I was completely inspired, I wanted to try making plush toys! I spent the next 2 years making plush toys and trying to perfect my technique before I got the nerve to open my Etsy shop and I’m so happy I did.


2) Where did you learn how to make plushes?

I learned how to sew from my grandmother when I was about 7 years old, she would spend all her time sewing and crocheting. She would give me all her scrap fabric that I would then turn in patchwork plushies (usually embellished with rhinestones).


3) What inspires you?

Cartoons, anime, mythical creatures, Lisa Frank, Betsey Johnson, rainbows, glitter, Halloween, kid robot, and every plush maker who is better/more successful than me because they inspire me to do better.


4) What are your plans for the future?

I hope to make this my full time job and be able to support myself, I want to branch out from plushies. I have so many things I want to try like turning my artwork into prints and stickers, hand painted (pins), t-shirts, etc.


5) What's the most challenging plushie to make?

Definitely the Unicorn/Pegacorn mostly because I haven’t figured out how to make it look the way I want with the sewing machine so 80% is sewn by hand and it’s extremely time consuming.


Millie's designs are fabulous.


Her prices are really reasonable, especially since the quality is amazing.


 The plushies are so sweet and precious.


I can keep browsing this shop for hours.


Check out Millie's fantastic handwork. 


Enjoy browsing...


And have fun shopping!
