HeartStrings Handmade specializes in distinctive gifts for the special people in your life.

HeartStrings Handmade is dedicated to creating unique and original handcrafted treasures. Designer/creator Denise Anne Costa celebrates home, family and relationships in her work. Colorful fabrics, trims, threads and beads are given life as whimsical characters for imaginative play, collectable figures affirming life's noteworthy moments, soft toys and finger puppets or beautiful fabric heirloom accessories for someone special.

HeartStrings grew from an appreciation for the timeless pleasures of hand stitching and embroidery, a passion for attention to detail, and a healthy dash of whimsy.


All work can be customized to your needs. Choose a doll who looks like a favorite someone, or who represents an unforgettable moment. Select personalized baby gifts or hand-stitched accessories made from treasured fabrics and felt or embroidered with names or initials. Order any item customized to your needs.
