Pertra Cotter has loved sewing since she was a little kid. Her grandmother taught her to sew and then she continued to teach herself. She studied Fashion Design in Europe where she is originally from. Petra says she used to sew custom wedding and prom dresses, coats and more but she fell in love with making stuffed toys, especially owls and dolls. She loves mixing colors and materials together. It makes her very happy when kids fall in love with one of her toys and they are all made WITH LOVE!
