Debbie the Duckling is lovingly handmade. She would make a wonderful gift, especially for Easter. Debbie is crafted carefully from yellow felt and has a beak and feet. Her wings and eyes are also made of felt making her a delightful soft toy measuring 7cm and she is an original design from my late mother after she first made her in the 1960s. She is suitable for all children, being CE tested.
There are different designs of Debbie in my shop with different contrasted colours on the wings and body. When you order Debbie I will contact you to ask you which variety you would like from my stock.
When Debbie finds her new home she would like you to know that she was made with love. The felt used to make Debbie has been carefully cut then hand stitched, polyester stuffing has been added and all of her detailed features are added by hand. It takes me about 4 hours to make Debbie.
Debbie comes with her own adoption certificate and I aim to keep packaging to a minimum to conserve what I can to help the environment. She is hand washable if she needs to be cleaned.
By purchasing toys from Missy’s Matters you are helping support our environment and animals of the world as I donate regularly to charities.
In my shop there are many other animals who have been living with Debbie whilst she is waiting for her home.

Handmade with love and care for you.
Missy’s Matters was created after many years of craft working as a hobby. Since a young age I have made things amounting to hundreds of charitable donations. The majority of the things I made were with my late mother and were donated to Moorfields Eye Hospital, who saved a little bit of her sight, so that they could raise funds in their gift shop, in order to help others. Now is the time to open my shop so that you can share the special gifts I make dedicated to her. In line with the childhood ethos I grew up with some donations from sales will be made to charities to support the local places mentioned on each item.
Working from home is perfect for me as I suffer from RP (Relapsing Polychondritis). RP causes me a lot of pain as it is an autoimmune condition where my body attacks my cartilidge. Cartilidge can be found throughout the body and RP causes agressive flares where my inflammatory arthritis in my joints gets worse, ribs hurt (costochondritis), nose bleeds, ears are red and sore and throat is hoarse and sore. It also makes me very tired. Even sitting down is sore because of coccydnia.
By owning my shop I am able to use my qualifications from A-Levels and previous work to make things for you. Felt is a wonderful material to design and craft soft toys from and in the 1950s when my mother was only a teenager she discovered just how well it would work. From her original patterns cut from old cereal boxes and anything she could find, come the toys of Missy’s Matters. Why should her creations stay lost and never seen? They bring her memory alive and create that all too important present moment for you to enjoy.
The soft toys are designed for all children, have been CE tested and are hand washable. Eyes are made from felt and I use polyester filling to stuff the toy to comply with safety testing. Missy’s Matters also creates cards, jewellery, painted shells, knitted items, artwork, paintings, cross stitch, cushions, boxed framed art and more. Keep an eye on my listings to see what is new! Generally speaking colour is my thing to create a bright, cheerful light in your life. I love to study the natural world, environment, industrial heritage, architecture and pets. Indeed, Missy is our dog so these items are her Matters!
