Welcome to Sarita Star Designs!


Thanks for visiting my blog! I am so excited to introduce my new line of hats:

Wrenly Hats, pixie hats inspired by my little daughter, Wren. You can read all about them here.

They are now available to purchase at my etsy store!


For updates, you can like my Facebook page. 🙂



**I am no longer taking orders for wall hangings or slings. **


Wrenly Hats!

Well hello, folks! It’s been a looong time. But I am back and I have a new line of the sweetest little hats! They are called Wrenly Hats… pixie hats inspired by my little Wren. (Wren is my newest daughter.) 🙂

They are all 100% cashmere or merino wool (and some angora here or there) and are an incredibly soft and lightweight wool hat. Great for in the house, running errands, or anywhere else you might want to look ridiculously cute. ❤

Flatlock serged or sewn with the seam out and pinked for a seamless fit on baby’s head. Great from Fall to Spring. In the snowy cold, I use the hat as a base layer under a bunting hood or I use a balaclava as a base layer under the Wrenly hat.

They are available in sizes: 0-3mo, 3-6mo, 6-12mo, 9-18mo, 18-36mo

They are available on Etsy, and here are some photos:

Make your own wall hanging!

*This is currently on hold*

I am opening up a few spots for semi-custom art appliqué wall hangings.

Instead of just owls, however, there are 4 other options for appliqués as well. 🙂

The choices are (there are pictures of each of these below):

1) A bird and branch (just like the one pictured) $85

2) Willow tree with blowing branches $85

3) A lotus flower $115

4) Ginkgo leaves with a dragonfly $115

5) Owl with branches $135

The wall hanging with be in this style:

The fun part though, is you get to pick the prints you want! You can send your own, or pick from etsy.com (includes any fabric that is $10/yd or less) if you’d like something that costs more, you will need to cover the difference).

If you would like to order a wall hanging, please send me an email stating which number appliqué you want. I will send you an invoice that does not include shipping (you pay for that once I pack it up and figure out the actual amount).

I will need payment and links to the 3 prints by Monday at 1pm (pacific time).

Example Photos of Appliqué Choices:

1) Bird–as shown above… you can add more branches and leaves for an extra $20

2) Willow tree with blowing branches

3) Lotus (it will actually be bigger for this project)

4) Ginkgo leaves with dragonfly

5) Owl and Branches

The completed size would be 20″x20″ (stretched canvas).

Turnaround time is 3 weeks from payment. 🙂


Owl Sling?

Would you like one? I just recently made this sweet little light colored owl and I want to make another! (Made for the sweet and talented Andrea of Dream Carriers.)

Light sage green body with cream edging. You pick your length, keeping in mind that the panel is 20″ long.

You can choose from the fabrics pictured, or let me pick for you.

You can see I’ve added a special detail to the shoulder… a circle of the print! It does not interfere with wearing.

(There is a hidden pocket on the back of the tail).

$165ppd–email me at saritastardesigns @ gmail. com to purchase. 🙂

Turnaround time is 1 week from payment received.

Here is the one I just finished (photos are clickable):

Here are the choices for prints:

I can do any of these, or a quilted combination of all 3.

(So sweet and vintage-y! I’m making my daughter a dress from these too.)

Thanks and happy owling!

Mountains, Birches, and Birds

Stunning set of stretched canvas wall hangings. Layers of fabric, paint, and raw edge applique technique gives this set a very unique look.  It’s something I’ve always been wanting to do. I am thrilled with the end result of this!

Each canvas is 24″ x 24″

If you would like a similar version of this artwork, please contact me via email.

$300 per canvas

Owl Sling Semi-Custom no longer available!

No longer available!

The branches are essentially the same as these slings and the tail is 20″ from top print strip down. The leaves will be made from the print.

Hidden pocket on back.

Here is the sketch and the fabric choices (slight changes are okay, as long as you just pick from what’s available–edging colors and body colors cannot be changed to be the other.) The owl will have feet. 😉

Please note that I cannot guarantee what color your moniter shows the colors… please go off of the description.

1) Slate gray with robin’s egg blue edging and Anna Maria Horner print:

2) Robin’s Egg blue with light green edging and Fresh Cut Flowers:

3) Canyon pink with peach edging and Fresh Cut Flowers (this is a low contrast egding and body combo)

4) With high contrast cream edging instead

2 semi instocks available–both taken!

I apologize for how long it’s been since I last updated. I hope you all haven’t given up on me! I’m back to homeschooling my son again, and it seems to not leave much time/energy for much else.

I am sad to say, that for now, I am putting custom rings slings on the shelf. 😦  I still love to make slings but I am also finding myself leaning in other directions as far as my sewing artistry goes.  I will be making instock slings and also focusing on moving toward more elaborate wall art; custom and of my own creation. So you can still get a custom (wall hanging, lol)!

I have been focusing my instocks on a new store locally called aNeMonE. They have amazing handmade paper flowers and other beautiful things and my slings fit in and sell well there.

Which brings me to some sling availability. I recently made some fab slings that sold very quickly and I need to make some replacements. You can see what they look like here . (Picture is clickable for a better view).  I have changed my shoulder so the folds (pleates) are on the underside (not showing when worn). They are single layer slings.

Both slings are spoken for.  Thanks!

If you would like one or the other, please send me an email at saritastardesigns@gmail.com.  I will only be taking orders for 2 so I can make them at the same time as the aNeMonE replacements. They are $140 each.  The bird on the blue will be a bit different but not much. You can pick which bird you want on your branches. 🙂  There is a hidden pocket on the back side of the tail.  You pick your sling length.  I can assure you that they are even more beautiful in real life… it was really hard for me to give up the blue one.. I loved it so much when it was done. ♥

These will be finished in the next 3 weeks and payment in full is required when you email that you want one. (Since I will be starting on them right away)

Feel free to email me any questions!
