WESTie Wednesday with Deanne of Little Feather Designs

Welcome to WESTie Wednesday, where each week we get to know a proud WEST member and their Etsy shop! Learn about Deanne and her Etsy shop Little Feather Designs!

"I am a wife to a hardworking man, nature warrior, mother of 2 wild boys, dog owner, sister to 5, friend to gypsy souls."

"In my etsy shop you will find a range of safe wood teethers, organic bibdanas, headbands and slouchy toques. I mainly make for little people ranging from newborn up to 6 to 8 years of age. I am slowly spreading my wings and branching out into clothing that will consist of shorts, harems, leggings, sweaters, tshirts and more. I also take on custom orders that have consisted of crayon rolls all the way up to handmade quilts."

 "I started my shop a few years ago when I was expecting my first baby. I wanted to make him everything but soon realized that costs a lot of money. Along with sewing for my boys came the making for others. I enjoy giving handmade gifts that have been blessed with love. The requests came in and after seeing the quality of goods out there in the stores Little Feather Designs was born. Most of my pieces were spurred as the needs of my family and surrounding family grew. Trendy bibs, safe teethers, cool reversible toques, headbands and now organic leggings, harems and soon more."

"Most if not all of my materials are American or Canadian made. I refrain as much as possible to take the cheap road and purchase from overseas and encourage the making of poor quality goods and even poorer working conditions. I use organic whenever and wherever I can. I want parents to feel secure knowing that the pieces they are purchasing from me are safe for their babes to use and wear."

"All of my pieces are made in my home using machines that were once my mothers prized possessions. I create in a space that is filled with the loudness of boys and the beauty of the woods. I take time preparing and making my products. By the time a piece is sent out a piece of me goes with it."

"I love to create in any way shape or form. I live out in wilds of the Canadian Shield in a home that my husband and I built with the help of friends and family. My love of nature and the great outdoors comes through in my products. I love warm natural colors and try to work with as much organic renewable fibers as possible."
