I design and create all of my plush.......
Bio Heidi Kenney is a self-taught artist who creates plush and 3D soft sculptures, happy (& sometimes very sad) plush veggies, donuts, toilet paper rolls, and other everyday food & household items. Born in Washington DC, Heidi currently lives in Pennsylvania. She started her company and website, My Paper Crane, in 2001 so she would have a place to blog and showcase the plush toys she was making.

"One should think it impossible to house as much creativity as Heidi Kenney, yet she continues to delight and astonish us all with her innovative creations, encompassing her talent not just among paper but also knitting, plush dolls, embroidery, and food decorations. She is an admirable mother and genuine artist. I regard Heidi with the utmost brilliance."
