Original Huggyhoundz is one woman with a sewing machine, fabrics, and paints, producing handcrafted individual items in her home workshop, supported by her wonderful husband and twelve spoiled doggies. I started Original Huggyhoundz in 2007, making cuddly greyhounds/lurchers and this has now progressed to a wider range of greyhound themed items, and other featured dog breeds as requested. Huggyhoundz are available in adult or puppy sized, either by purchasing directly from the web page, or by contacting me through the contact page if you require a colour or style of huggyhound not featured. They all have safety eyes and fabric noses, are filled with fire retardant stuffing, and unless otherwise stated are suitable for all ages. I always aim to ensure that my customers are happy and pleased with their purchases, which sometimes means that they wait longer than if they simply bought an item from a high street store or via a big online store.

My range of quilted throws are available in any size, from cot to king size bed and beyond. Most of the throws are commissioned items, with clients own choice of colours for the background fabrics and the featured greyhound, as many clients like a throw to represent their own pets with colour schemes to compliment the decor of their bedroom or lounge. Quilted throws are filled with wadding and backed with cotton and all throws are machine washable and will tumble dry. Throws are always pre-washed before shipping to ensure that they are colour fast, and I recommend that they are washed and dried at lower temperatures. If there are lots of contrasting colours on the throw I also recommend the use of 'colour catcher' washing machine sheets to prolong the life of the throw and keep all the colours looking as bright and fresh as when they were first created. My fleece cushions are an excellent idea for children’s rooms, conservatories, bedrooms, lounges, cars or caravans. They are warm and snuggly, sized at around 14 ins x 14 ins and again are fully washable and will tumble dry. Accessories such as hot water bottle covers, fleece scarves, wooden lead holders, candles etc. are all available as stock items. Larger wooden items such as table lamps and wall sconces are fitted out by a fully qualified electrician and conform to current British safety standards. They are only made to order, again, please contact me with your specific requirements.

On my gallery page you will see photographs of commissioned items worked in fabric paint onto fabric which is then turned into a cushion or a throw. These items are of clients’ own pets, to their own specifications. Please contact me if you would like a quote for a cushion or throw featuring your pet, you must be able to provide a photograph of your pet which is of good quality for me to work from. I have clients all over the world and I’m happy to accept commissions from USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, etc. as well at UK and EU countries. Shipping charges will be the standard postal rate to these countries unless otherwise requested. I do occasionally ship via UPS if an order is large or heavy, and charges will be quoted along with the price of the order.
