Abandon not all ye moth-eaten and shrunken cashmere sweaters—designer Brooke Serson Cernonok of Teddylux can sprout an entire menagerie from your castoffs.

The Atlanta, Ga.-based former ski instructor hand-sews one-of-a-kind bears, elephants, and bunnies from vintage and preloved cashmere in her studio, a century-old erstwhile rug factory. Every cuddly creature is made to order—you get your choice of pinks, blues, and neutral palettes—and you can even send Cernonok a much-loved sweater for transforming into a custom softie at no extra cost. Each toy, which will set you back $50-$60, comes in a beribboned recycled-cardboard gift box, ready for handing over to your favorite child or not-so-grownup.
