ATTENTION: The doll pictured is not available. Yours will be made to order, so please check with me before ordering to find out my lead time.

This doll was a custom order for someone who wanted it to resemble the title character from Rachel Isadora's rendition of The Princess and The Pea. The dreads I did are simply a shorter version of the long curls I've done on other dolls. She has big gold earrings, flowers on her shoes, and a little removable shrug. If you want one exactly like it, cool! If you want to request a completely different character from a different book, cool! Your Doll will be made in the softest acrylic yarn, to your specifications. It is stuffed firmly with polyester fiber fill. This would be the perfect lovey for your little girl, and an added intrigue to reading. She is a little over a foot in length. Her limbs are tightly crocheted but not stuffed, so they are bendable. Her heart shaped mouth will make your lucky girl absolutely fall in love. She is machine washable since she is bound to end up dragged around everywhere by her curls, braids, dreads, etc.

This is made to order so just let me know what ethnicity or complexion and what color scheme you want (you can request one exactly the same as one of these pictured, or you can be as detailed as you want and let me know your color selection for skin, eyes, hair, stripes on dress, leggings, shoes, flowers). Or you can simply send me a picture of a character you'd like me to imitate (pattern, clothing, hair, and accessories will change based on the image and my artistic take on the character).


My prices have gone up and down over the years as I've tried to negotiate a compromise between paying myself an okay wage and having my items be affordable. I decided that I'd give you the opportunity to choose your price. I will leave my previous price as an option, in which I'm paying myself $7.41 per hour. My second option is a price that will pay me the 2016 California minimum wage, $10 per hour. My third option is a price that will pay me a living wage, $15 per hour.

My overhead for this doll, including transaction fee, listing fee, and supplies is roughly $8.10. This order takes roughly 7 hours to complete. So if you want to pay me the current California minimum wage, that would be $78.10. If you want to pay me a living wage, that would be $113.10. I greatly appreciate any sale, regardless of what you choose, and I thank you in advance for understanding my desire to fully honor my work and time. If you can't afford the higher price options, please don't feel bad about selecting the previous price. I don't want to lose your business!

A little about me:
My two little kiddos are my life. I'm addicted to the practice of yoga. I'm a classically trained soprano. I've had one cavity my whole live. I don't believe things without evidence. I use too much salt. I made my own pogs as a child. I recognize my own white privilege and try to use it to help proclaim BLACK LIVES MATTER. I've crocheted for 20 years. Favorite TV shows: Six Feet Under, Freaks and Geeks, The Office, Parenthood, Broad City, Underground (but I'm never in front of the TV without yarn and hook in hand). Favorite Musicians: Bjork, Joanna Newsom, Regina Spektor, The Beatles, Radiohead, Sigur Ros, Kate Rusby, Jesca Hoop... I've never purchased mp3s online. I buy CDS. I want to try crocheting with cassette tape. I keep more yarn on hand than I need to. I gift crocheted items too often. I can save anybody with my blood. Favorite Movies: Dancer in the Dark, To Kill A Mockingbird, In America... I love any kind of olives, but they start to taste funny if they're left out too long at a salad bar. I like to trick kids into eating veggies by hiding them strategically in foods they like (anybody down for spinach pesto?). Conversation with my 3 year old son:
Prior: "Who are these?"
Me: "Those are your nipples."
Prior: "My nipples wants to take a bath."
