Announcement   Thanks for stopping by Bruckleberry Patch! The animals here are always glad to see a friendly face, whether new or familiar. Each of my animals is carefully knitted, seamed, stuffed and embroidered by me, and always with the thought of how they will hold up to play. I am also careful not to leave any parts loose and I embroider all the facial features so there are no hard parts - all my animals are safe for babies!

Gorgeously and thoughtfully constructed, this ball will make the perfect "Welcome" gift for any new baby. Tightly knit and well-seamed. And better yet: I am so pleased to be able to buy local and support such an inspired shop!!! THANK YOU!!!

About

Animals with a story

When I was a kid I had a huge imagination. One of my earliest memories is of me feeding shelled peanuts to my stuffed white and red elephant, Jumbo. My sisters and I would also pull out all our animals and play house or school or go on adventures. It is my hope that my stuffed animals will encourage the same imagination and creativity in the children who receive them.

My shop's heritage comes from creativity: Bruckleberry Patch was originally a land I created for a determined Wallomp (keep an eye out for Huxley in the near future!) for a creative writing class. In keeping with that heritage, I provide a brief character story for each animal. It is my sincere hope that my stuffed animals will foster growth of the imagination that every child naturally has.

I love knitting animals for my nephew and niece and for my friends' babies. I'm excited I can share these same animals with other people now through Bruckleberry Patch!

Thank you for shopping at Bruckleberry Patch! I am delighted to share my handknit creations with you. Each animal or toy is individually crafted and makes the perfect gift for your neices, nephews, children, and grandchildren! The toys even make a perfect baby gift for the new babies in your life!

Each toy is constructed with quality and excellence as I pay close attention to each and every stitch I knit. I create these animals in the hope that they will be well-loved, and so am conscious of choosing yarn that is fully washable. All animals or toys are made of soft yarn, and stuffed with hypoallergenic stuffing. Aside from their photography sessions, each animal remains safely indoors in a smoke-free house.

If you have any questions, please contact me: http://www.etsy.com/convo_new.php?to_username=BruckleberryPatch

I look forward to working with you to create the perfect toy for your loved ones!

All animals or toys by Bruckleberry Patch are hand knit by me using all new materials. As I mentioned above, aside from their photography sessions (in which I take great care that they do not get dirty), each animal lives in a smoke-free house. If you are concerned about the outdoors photography, please let me know. Additionally, I will make every effort to ensure they arrive safe and secure to your home.

Thanks for visiting Bruckleberry Patch. I hope you'll visit again soon!
