Susan's Profile

About

Thank you for visiting designsbymsusan.etsy.com!

I have been sewing for as long as I can remember. My eye is influenced by the years I spent in Japan admiring the beauty and elegance of large-scale prints on kimonos.

I'm attracted to simple shapes and originally designed Snuggly Swaddle Dolls so my one-year old could have something comforting to hold, soft to touch, and cheerful to babble at. It also had to be safe and would not fade or fall apart after several washings. Since then, children of all ages have asked for the dolls. They love the dolls' smiles and soft snuggly shape.

Of course, children aren’t the only ones who enjoy the dolls. Their easy shape and lovely fabrics make them perfect for display and a cheerful addition to any space.
