I gave this to my niece for her baptism and she loved it! LaShelle was able to embroider her name and birth date on the dolls dress. She also adjusted the shipping to ensure I had it in time. This is a unique and perfect gift for any young lady!!

About

Traditional handmade dolls for the young and young at heart!

I had no idea the journey that was ahead of me as I walked through the craft store one day. I came across a book that had the cutest doll on the front. I picked it up and anxiously flipped through the pages, seeing the cutest crafts and dolls I had ever seen. I had to make them! I have always been into crafts and quilting, but I had never made dolls. I Didn't know the first thing about it. But I still just wanted to make them so bad! So I purchased the supplies, watched a few dozen Utube videos and made a doll or 2, then more, and I gave them to my sweet little nieces for Christmas. They were ecstatic! One of my nieces said, "she is so precious, I'm Speechless!" (which is saying something for this little girl! :) ) They loved on them and carried them around, stroked their hair, and would say out of no where to no one in particular, " I love my doll...." Of course their moms and Grandmas were even more impressed that I would give little girls such a handmade treasure. Who else deserves it more than the sweet little princesses in my life. I said, "Let them love them and play with them, don't put them up on a shelf. I can sew back on hair or an arm if they get loved a little to much." :) I have made them for my daughters and adult women too, they are just a sweet expression of an older time, when little girls played with soft pretty cloth dolls and not hard plastic ones that are shaped and dressed like adult models with tons of makeup. You can't even buy a modest dress to put on them! So I wanted to share my dolls with all little girls. I love their imaginations and love for pretty things. Of course we don't ever quite grow out of it, so my doll are for the "young at heart". I hope you fall into that category, I know that I do! I would love to help you give one of these special dolls to a special person in your life, They are truly stitched with love. Message me if there is something I can do to help!

Frequently asked questions

How long does it take you to make each doll?

I would say the average is 8 hrs. My dolls all differ in size, which affects the time, and the tiny ones take almost long as the large.
The process put very simply is like this:
1. Trace pattern onto fabric. Cut and sew pieces.
2. Turn parts right side out.
3. Stuff bodies and limbs.
4. Sew on arms and legs by hand.
5. Arrange and sew, or paint on hair, also by hand.
6. Sew clothes partly on sewing machine. This includes, attaching the trim, hemming, making little clothes.
7. Attach clothes to doll. This takes a while with the 22 inch dolls. Their full skirts are hand gathered and sewn onto them.
8. Faces! This includes a few acrylic paint dots for eyes and some blush on cheeks.
9. Embellishments to add that little extra special touch!
