Hi, I'm Antonella and I'm having so much fun making all my dolls, plushies and wall art

Little black ant was created in 2011 by me, Antonella Piccoli Dixon, after a few years of dabbling in doll making. I started by making one for my baby boy, then another to give to a friend’s baby for her birthday, then another friend asked me to make a dark skinned African doll and so it started.
With so many beautiful fabrics on the market it is a delight to imagine the next creation. Fashion and kids fashion also constantly inspire me. I love the old fashioned idea of a rag doll mixed with modern day fabrics and fashion.
Working out of my garden studio, I feel very lucky to be creating something that brings joy, smiles and laughter to the young and the young at heart alike.

    I grew up in South Africa. In my twenties I lived in Florida USA. I spent a decade there riding my bike, giving body massages and picking fresh mangoes. Upon my return to Johannesburg I was inspired to start making dolls after I had my baby boy
