Dark Roast & Friends Plush
Halloween and Christmas return in March with Dark Roast, Ginger Cat Latte and more! Help us continue to grow the Purrista Pawfee family with these holiday cats. The Kickstarter will launch March 1 for about 20 days so that any plush that fund can be in your hands in time to celebrate the seasons in 2019. Stay tuned! When we go live, a link will appear here to take you directly to the campaign.

Mochi Bear Studio and Kimchi Kawaii Collaboration
Sadly, the project failed to gain the interest we needed and Mochi Bear Studio and I made the tough decision to cancel the campaign. We retain the rights to our individual designs so you may see Bunana and Bunana Bread in a future Kimchi campaign. Thank you to all who backed and shared. We hope you’ll continue to follow both of us as we further our brands with more cute designs.
Salty Carameow and Espurresso Plush
The Purrista Pawfee family is growing! Both Salty Carameow and Espurresso hit their funding goal with the August Kickstarter and will now go into production. ETA is January, 2019. Once we get closer to shipping, pre-orders will open to the general public. Thank you to everyone who pledged and shared the campaign!
Chinese Lion and Dragon Plush
Inspired by my love of the playful Chinese Lion dancers and the beautiful dragons seen at celebrations, this campaign hoped to fund plush production of these designs. The project ended March 6, 2018 with the Lion fully funded. If you missed the campaign, you can order Lion in the shop.
Kimchi Kawaii Enamel Pins Project
Launched in October, 2017, this campaign combined the cuteness of Punny Buns and Purrista Pawfee. Backers helped fund an amazing 10 different designs as 1.5", hard enamel pins.
Bring the cuteness to your home now!
In March, 2017, I launched a very short, 7-day campaign to fund the Kittea plush. Kittea has been very popular as a 2D design from the start and fans wanted a fully huggable version. We fully funded in one amazing week.

Cinnamon Bun & Peanut Bunny & Jelly
March, 2017 saw the second Punny Buns plush Kickstarter. This time, fans helped bring two of my largest-to-date plush to life - Cinnamon Bun and Peanut Bunny and Jelly.
Bring home a Punny Bun!
Torta Shell & Mewcarons
In September 2016, I launched the second Purrista Pawfee Kickstarter. This one featured my chocolate cake cat - Torta-shell (play on the words 'tortoiseshell', a fur pattern on cats and 'torta', the Spanish and Italian word for 'cake'). Stretch goals were the remaining two Mewcarons. All pulled through and funded in about a month!
Catpuccino & Friends
January 2016 was the launch of my most successful Kickstarter to date, the first Purrista Pawfee project. This one featured Catpuccino. By the time the Kickstarter was over, backers had also unlocked the Biskitti, Danish Pawstry, and Pink Mewcaron. Funding ended at over 200%
Take home one of these cuddly kitties!
Honey Bun & Hamburger Bun
The Punny Buns had their Kickstarter debut, March 2015. Honey Bun led the pack with Hamburger Bun and a manufactured version of my Steamed Bun as stretch goals. All funded within the 30-day time period.
Honey Bun and Hamburger Bun are both currently sold out, but there are many other Punny Bun items.
