About

‘The Feelings’ are a set of characters that I started making back in 2009. Worry was the first and was soon joined by a whole host of emotion monsters.

Each one is the personification of the mental health concern that they represent. They are talismans to ease your struggle and to remind you that you are not alone.

Worry was the first kickstarted plush back in 2016 and was a huge success! Last year saw some of the Feelings made in to silver charm beads via Ohm and now I am going to bring Self-conscious to life as a scented plush doll.

Each one will be made from super soft fabric and stuffed with squishy stuffing and natural ginger. Ginger is known to boost confidence and mood. These dolls are aromatherapy dolls just like the Worry ones you know and love. 

I want to remove the stigma around mental health. It’s a personal journey that I’ve been on for 9 years through my art and I am going to keep on going with this as I don’t ever want anyone to feel alone in this world.

A huge thank you to everyone who has supported ‘The Feelings’ so far and thank you for joining me on my mental health awareness journey.

Risks and challenges

If the project doesn’t gain full funding I won’t be able to pay the manufacturers so these will not be made in to plush dolls.

I am a one woman team so I will get all orders processed as quickly as possible once the campaign is kickstarted.

    Self conscious AND Worry

    We all have those days where we feel self-conscious and don't feel like we really want anyone to see us.
    Well, Self-conscious has decided that today is a 'stay under the blanket' kind of day. Tell Self-conscious your concerns and let them deal with it all for you, while you go out and hold your head high.
    Maybe being self conscious has also made you feel extremely worried. These two feelings often coincide.

    So now you can have BOTH a Self-conscious plush and a Worry plush (from the successful 2016 Kickstarter campaign).

    A 10cm plush Self-conscious toy made of super soft velboa fabric, stuffed with hypoallergenic stuffing and scented with natural ginger (Ginger is a heating ayurvedic herb that energizes the body and functions as an anti-depressant).

    Safety eyes and materials comply with CE regulations. Blanket is removable.

    AND

    A 10cm grey plush Worry toy made of super soft velboa fabric, stuffed with hypoallergenic stuffing and scented with natural lavender (Lavender has a calming effect on the body and mind).

    Safety eyes and materials comply with CE regulations.
