Tiny little treasures that can fit in your pocket or the doll house.
Each doll is made unique through hand stitches finishing techniques.
The patterns for the dolls are mostly by Canadian Etsy seller Elissa from Create Joy Make Stuff. But I also use patterns and tips from Ann Wood Handmade’s Tiny Rag Doll pattern and a few ideas from my own decades of doll making (wow, decades, that makes me feel old!)
The dolls are approximately 16cm tall around the size of a 1:12th doll and come in a lovely little gift box, so perfect for giving to someone special.
This doll has a cotton body with tiny reddish-brown painted Mary Jane shoes. She has a tiny heart embroidered on her chest and her hair is wool.
She comes with a set of clothes which can be worn all together or as separate pieces.
Her undergarments are a white bodysuit and a white skirt both with lace trimming. They can be worn together as a white outfit or as nightwear.
Her dress is a practical grey cotton with red stitching and two small decorative buttons on the front. It has a press stud closure on the back.
As with all my items, the price includes free UK postage.
Where possible the materials I use in these dolls are ‘rescued’. The hair comes from local (Yorkshire) woollen mills some of the cotton and stuffing might have come from off-cuts. They are heritage dolls, reminders of our Northern working class roots. Because of this, these dolls cannot be sold as dolls for children’s play. They cannot qualify for CE certification, although every care has been taken to make the dolls, they are not toys.
