Whimsical dolls and animals that inspire a storybook adventure and a fairy-tale ending.

Applesauce Design's started out as making one-of-a-kind vintage inspired kids clothes using mainly vintage materials. I now mainly make one-of-a-kind art dolls and stuffed animals, which is where my heart and passion truly is.

I love using vintage materials. I also find faux fur fun to work with. Whenever possible I try to use recycled fabrics on the little furry animals and dolls that I create, therefore insuring that I leave less of an ecological footprint on the environment.

Hello there and welcome to my shop. I hope you like what you see. I enjoy making beautiful vintage inspired one of a kind pieces. I mainly focus on making art dolls. I love adding embroidery details to my dolls, helping them to come alive. I get inspired by many things that are around me in my life and find most of my materials from flea markets, garage sales, estate sales and thrift stores. Being that most of the fabrics I use are vintage, there may be some imperfections in the fabrics which only adds to the uniqueness of my pieces. Thank you for stopping by my shop and enjoy.
