What IS greenstarstudio?
greenstarstudio is a collection of handmade works by children's illustrator danamarie hosler, who believes that art should be lived with, snuggled with and shared. at the heart of greenstarstudio are the Knitimals--- sweet, hand knit soft sculptures made completely without aid of machine or pattern & make great companions for children of all ages. Every single thing in this shop is made by danamarie (by hand) and with care & concern for the environment; whenever possible, local, organic, recycled & recyclable materials are used (check individual listings for more information). Custom orders are available & welcome!
do you take custom orders?
sure thing! just send me an email at
do you accept wholesale orders?
yep! i love 'em. please send me an email at, with information about your shop (including a URL, if you have one) and what KINDS of products you'd be interested in carrying. I can email you a line sheet once i have that info... and we can go from there.
can i return custom orders?
i'm afraid not... since every single piece IS handmade from scratch, it's pretty important that we get it right the first time. But i want you to be happy--- SO, if you have any concerns or questions, shoot me an email before you order, or check out my online gallery for samples of previous work:
