Contact the Artist

I am Katya Cherepkova - the designer-maker behind KittyApril handmade, based in Perm, Russia. I love creating miniature hedgehogs, squirrels and other animals.

I adore the whole creative process from sketching to taking photos of newborn creations. I have been a teddy bear artist since 2011.

All animals are collectible creations designed according to my own patterns and handmade by me in my home studio. Every detail is stitched with my own hands. Created in a non-smoking environment.

Each creation comes with a birth certificate and gift-wrapped in a craft box. The packaging is recycable and eco-friendly.

I ship each parcel with Russian avia mail with a tracking number. Please allow at least 1 month for shipping due to the pandemic.
