ATTENTION: I pretty much always have a LONG wait list. Make sure to check with me before ordering. Rush orders can sometimes be accommodated with a $10 rush fee.

This is a version of my Princess and the Pea Doll (inspired by the title character from Rachel Isadora's rendition of The Princess and The Pea) but done in an assortment of spring colors. In the fourth picture, you can see the original doll. 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 about 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).

Since this is made to order, check with me to find out my lead time.

A little about me:
My husband and two little kiddos are my life. I'm a classically trained soprano. I never had a cavity until two years ago. I use too much salt. I've crocheted for 20 years. Favorite TV shows: Six Feet Under / Parenthood / Big Love (but I'm never on the couch without yarn and hook in hand). Favorite Musicians: Bjork / Rufus Wainwright / Joanna Newsom / Regina Spektor (and too many others to bore you with). I keep more yarn on hand than I need to. I gift crocheted items too often. I'm done with soy milk. Favorite Movies: Dancer in the Dark / In America. I delivered my baby boy Prior on 10/18/2012, and my daughter Matilda was a new years baby on 1/1/11 (3 minutes too late at 11:14). I enjoyed my epidural both times. :) I've never purchased mp3s online. I buy CDS. I want to try crocheting with cassette tape. Favorite quote from a nephew (overheard by his mother while approaching the boys' room): "Hurry, she's coming, hide it in your mouth!"
