Meet the Maker
"It all began with a dream".
Hello and welcome to Fuzzy Fur Paws! I'm Teresa, and a dog mom. I've been sewing and crafting since childhood. I've always had "busy hands", as is reflected in my chosen career as a forth generation barber/stylist. I owned my own barbering business for over 20 years in Little Rock. I also worked for ten years with dog rescue groups, fostering and helping them to find loving homes and a second chance at love.
I the earlier days, I was blessed to have a great sewing teacher, my grandmother Nona. She was a fantastic seamstress and owned her own fabric store. She taught me how to sew and many other handcrafts when I was young. I can remember sitting on her lap as she sewed on her Singer treadle sewing machine. I was instantly hooked. She passed down her wealth of knowledge of fine fabrics and sewing techniques to me.
I spent many years sewing for my family and even the public. I made and designed pageant dresses for babies and toddlers when my daughter was young. I also enjoyed all kinds of handcrafts such as crochet, macrame, wreath making, cross stitch embroidery, and much more.
As a passionate animal lover, it's always been my dream of someday working in the pet industry. I especially love dogs, birds and bunnies. I currently have two Shih Tzu, one Morkie and one Shih Tzu Mix. All rescue dogs. They enjoy spending their day with me in my sewing room. It's their favorite place to hang out and nap.
On September 15, 2013, I suffered a serious break to my arm and shoulder. Sadly, that ended my days of cutting hair. But as it's been said, "When one door closes, another one opens". The injury opened the door to follow my dream of opening an online dog/pet boutique. I enjoy making things for dogs and the humans who love them. I went out and purchased an embroidery machine and made it happen. Now I get to use my God given talent, to make unique, high quality pet gifts. My focus has been personalized dog toys, blankets and pillows, yet expanding my product line continually. Everything in my shop is made in my home. There's no warehouse, no mass production, no employees. I'm a one woman show. I sincerely hope you love my items as much as I love creating them.

How it’s Made
My handmade blankets are so time consuming to make, but so worth it in the end. I make them from Shannon Minky fabrics. It's the best Minky on the market, expensive, but I do not believe in cutting corners with it comes to quality.
I stitch the dog design and personalization on my ten needle Baby Lock embroidery machine. I join the back side to the front side with my Baby Lock Crescendo sewing machine. I top stitch around the edges as a finishing touch to help the blanket hold its shape and beauty wash after wash. I also take on the tedious task of pulling the plush fur fibers out of the seams so that the fur is evenly showing around the edge of the blanket. Takes some time, but it's so worth it.
