About TheFireflyPatch

Sales 269
On Etsy since 2019

Matthew 5:16 Let your light shine...

The Firefly Patch began as a hobby and has grown into a passion. Stuffed animals can be a calming comfort or be a cuddly companion.

Most of my animals are weighted and can be customized to meet your needs. Weighted animals help children & some adults with sensory disorders feel grounded in their space. It helps them to feel calm, helps to relax and adds body awareness. The added pressure to a person's muscles helps reduce anxiety and allows him/her to be more attentive. Stuffed animals are less obvious than a weighted blanket or vest but still calming, so they are a great choice for trips to the store, school, or any place your child doesn't want to feel different. The weight plus the touch stimulation from the furry animal work together to create a unique sensory experience.

My inspiration comes from my time teaching young children. I often encounter students that need a little more support or comfort in order to get through the day. Weighted vests can become cumbersome and to some, embarrassing. I created cuddly soft, weighted animals to accompany a person throughout their day.

I use many different mediums, such as cottons, minky and fleece. I believe that working in a single medium is restrictive to my artistic process. Each idea manifests in its own individual style.

    Hi! Welcome to The Firefly Patch! I love to sew and make stuffed animals but when I am not at my sewing machine, I love to be at the beach, reading a book or watching my kids play sports.

Frequently asked questions

Custom and personalized orders

At this time I do not take custom orders for unique items, though I will open up custom orders in the future. At the moment I'm happy to make small changes such as weight, color, fabric to items already listed.

How long does it take for you to ship my item(s)?

Each item is unique and has it's own processing and shipping time. I make every item by hand. Nothing is pre-made or bought from outside sources. Each item is made from raw materials. Please check each item BEFORE check out to insure it will arrive by the date you need it.

Wholesale availability

I do not sell wholesale.

Are all of your animals weighted?

No, not all animals are weighted. Some are too small to hold weight. If you do not see the weight option available on the item you are interested in, please message me BEFORE purchasing the item.

I don't see a weight option for this animal, can you add xx pounds please?

If the item has a weight option that is sold out, please do not purchase the zero pound option and ask me to add weight. Adding weight adds cost and shipping! Please message me BEFORE purchasing to see if the weight option is available or can be added.
Thank you for understanding.

Care instructions

If you are looking to do a little preventative maintenance and get some of the dust out of the fur of your toy, a damp cloth should do the trick. Avoid disinfectant wipes as ingredients in them such as alcohol may damage fur or colors and leave an unhealthy residue. Placing the animal in the freezer for an extended period will also kill dust mites.

To wash and dry your stuffed toy, place in a pillow case, which can reduce matting of longer plush fur. When washing, use minimal washing detergent and avoid additives such as fabric softeners which can leave residues on the plush toy. Wash using the hand wash or gentle cycle. Minimal drying in the dryer on the lowest heat setting. Sitting outside in the sun or in a sunny window is best.

Where is my package?

Once you receive my message that I have shipped your package, please use your tracking number to check on the status of your package(s). You can visit the USPS website, enter your tracking number and get updates. I am not affiliated with any mail carrier and cannot guarantee items will be delivered by a certain date.
