Allie: A Handmade Cloth Doll
Most of the dolls I make are customs. One of the things I like about making custom dolls is that it challenges me to look at a doll differently than I might otherwise. This doll, Allie, was made for a very dear friend. On my own, I doubt I ever would have put black clothing on one of my dolls, but when black was requested for this dear doll, I thought “why not?” I’m glad I kept an open mind. Allie is lovely and somehow the black, a color I would normally think harsh, suits her gentle demeanor perfectly.
Allie is ~17 inches tall with wool yarn hair. She has a sweet little dandelion dress, a hand-knitted sweater, hand-knitted booties, and little cotton underpants. As this post goes live, she is already on her way to what will most certainly be a loving home.
If you are hoping for a custom November Morning Doll, I do still have one open spot for August here.
