Our Story





For over five years, we have been designing and making our plushies. We are a small business that prides ourselves on knowing our customers and making the stuffed animal or plush decor they imagine. Not only do we create cute octopi plushies, we also make custom pieces for your loved ones to enjoy. We are currently available online and in two stores in
Rochester: Jenn's Cookie Creations and ShopOne.

Michelle started Fleecimals during her sophomore year of college, sewing small octopi for her friends and family. After selling a few she decided to venture into local artist alleys and conferences. A year later she found herself visiting local conventions 

Tora Con, Flower City Comic Con and STARFest! These events are so amazing to get to meet our supporters in person!

Not a long while after, Michelle was introduced to Maddy, a talented seamstress who helps to produce more of our plushies.  Noah joined shortly after as our head photographer taking product shots for our social media and website. Noah now spends time producing and editing our video contact that you can watch at Youtube @Fleecimals.With the growing size of events, Nika and Jodie joined the team! They both love cosplay and conventions alike. They have been sewing our lovable plushies with us and joining us at local conventions!


 We are all so glad that our little friends get to be adopted by YOU! So thank you for supporting us, our plushies, and our team!

Happy Adopting!
