About Blue Jasmine Studios / Whimsical Whiskers

Blue Jasmine Studios / Whimsical Whiskers creates unique, one of kind handmade stuffed animals for kids and adults. Cats, dragons, and other lovable creatures are handmade with care. All of our products are ethically made -- rather than producing in China, we employ local seamstresses in Colorado who are refugees. Everything is handmade with lots of love and care! Themed quilts, home decor items, baby gifts and bow ties, too! We've been called "handmade Nerdy Build-A-Bear" since you can dress up your dragon or cat with lots of fun fan-art inspired accessories. Adopt a snuggly animal friend today!

Browse the store to see the current selection of items available. Custom orders are welcome-- please contact me to discuss.

Rather than producing our stuffed animals in China, we support local community seamstresses (refugee women - three at the moment, one from Afghanistan and two from Burma) and pay a living wage for their time and skills. All of our stuffed animals are sewn in small batches (usually 10 at a time) then sold at markets such as craft fairs and comic cons. Patterns for these animals and all products are all original and were developed by the owner, Brenna, personally.

We are proud to partner with WeMadeThis, a local organization that helps women refugees by teaching them sewing and job skills. We are privileged to employ some of these wonderful women to sew our products.

About Brenna

I have been sewing and quilting for 10 years.  Baby quilts, prayer shawls, wall hangings, teddy  bears, clothing -- I've sewn it all. While earning my BA in Studio Art, I took a weaving class and I was hooked on fiber art. Threadpainting, embroidery, weaving, applique, dyeing, spinning -- I love them all, and am constantly learning new techniques.  Quilts in particular are a way to make tangible the care and "warmth" of a family and a home.

Custom designs are particularly exciting to create-- please contact me to discuss details.

Check out the Portfolio to see some of my work. I look forward to working with you!
