Lil' Totem Softies

Here come the Softies!
I finished up and listed a couple today, and will be listing more over the weekend.
These little softies are based on the Pumpkinhaus Prim. Only they are around 10" tall.... and a bit more colorful!
(click any of the pictures to be taken to the softie section of my shop)
I have been making very small (1") little talisman dolls for my step-dad. He uses them for his clients as an effigy/talisman/totem, He is a Jungian Psychotherapist and a Shaman. I was going to put them in my shop, but it would be so hard to make and photograph many little 1" dolls.... so I decided to make them bigger.

So, you can purely love these for the sake of being a softie lover.... or you can dig in a little deeper....

This colorful little totem/talisman will watch over you and bring you protection. Infused with a natural essential aromatherapy oil of your choice.


Each individual little totem is about 10 inches tall and is made up of a hodge podge of beautiful fabrics (vintage and new), buttons, lace, applique, wool felt and hand dyed and spun yarn (by my favorite! fabulosity.etsy.com).


Lie it on your bed, couch, or drag the little thing around with you everywhere you go for maximum effect!


These are all one of a kind little beings, and there are many, many to choose from so you can find yourself a perfect match!


Here is a list of available oils to choose from:

Anise ~ cheering, mildly euphoric
Bergamot ~ uplifting, inspiring, confidence-building
Cedarwood ~ emotional stress, anxiety, powerlessness
Cinnamon Cassia ~ comforting, energizing, warming
Citronella ~ purifying, vitalizing
