About

I live in Budapest (Hungary, Europe, see my about page) with my husband and two adolescent children.

My grandma was a seamstress, so sewing is a family tradition. Yarns, textiles and buttons are surround me everytime. I started to sew my own clothes as a little girl (many-many years ago...) and for now sewing things comes natural to me.

I started to make dolls and toys when my children were toddlers. The remaining textils of their clothes transformed to fairies, cats, bears and other lovely creatures.
And for now, my children grew up, figure-making becomes more than a hobby. Now I'm collecting materials (textiles, buttons, ribbons, etc), and I have more ideas than I can think of.

Each piece made after solid plannig and based on careful experiments. When I reproduce an item I often change the sewing pattern a bit - so my dolls are always changing. I prefer to use remaining of textiles and recycle old clothes. My favorites are the natural fabrics (these are better to wear, too), and I take lots of time to pair the colors and patterns. I sew by machine and hand too, and always do my best. I use the best quality polyfill to get light and soft toys which won't get lumpy after washing.

If it happen that you have any questions, do not hesitate to write me. I’ll reply with pleasure.
