May All I Say

Native American Doll

New to my Etsy shop is this sweet Native American doll. This doll was handmade with 100% wool yarn and stuffed with pure wool. My interest and admiration of Native American philosophy was the motivation for designing this pattern.

One of my favorite prayers is written below:

May all I say and all I do
Be in harmony with thee.
God within me, God beyond me,
Maker of the trees.
– Iroquois prayer

Pure Wool

I try to live a healthy lifestyle. Natural foods, physical activity, vegetarianism, moderation, and meditation are important to me.

While committed to using natural fibers – primarily super soft wool yarn – to make my dolls and toys, I’ve decided that it’s time to take it one step further. As a result, all of the newly created items in my Etsy shop will be stuffed with 100% wool. In addition, wool stuffing will be standard on all custom listings.

I have decided to use pure virgin wool, where no dyes, bleaches, fire retardants, or other chemicals are used in the processing of the wool. Wool is natural, biodegradable, naturally fire retardant and it stays fluffy with use. Wool also inhibits the growth of bacteria and doesn’t hold moisture, causing mold.

Since making the switch, I’ve noticed several changes. My toys feel softer, warmer, and more cuddly. I’ve made several for my daughters to test the durability of the wool stuffing, and the toys have withstood the test of lots of loving!

Welcome to Snowfall Studio

Hi there! Welcome to Snowfall Studio, a place to find sweet and sturdy handmade toys!

As an artisan and a mom, my goal is to create toys that are soft, colorful, and durable. I design my own patterns, and I am committed to using natural fibers. Every Snowfall Studio plushie is crocheted, hand sewn, and hand embroidered by me in my small studio.

Choosing handmade is awesome because of the personal connection between the customer and the craftsperson. My customers are invited to personalize their orders in a way that is meaningful to them, through choosing unique colors and/or altering the design.

More Snowfall Studio designs are available in my Etsy shop.

Please feel free to contact me to request a special order. Together let’s create a heirloom that is as unique and special as your child!

Thank you for visiting Snowfall Studio!
