Ella: A Handmade Cloth Doll
Ah, Ella, you spunky little thing!
Ella is an 18″ handmade cloth doll. She has fair cotton interlock skin and light blue eyes. Her hair is a mohair weft crocheted into a wig and then wrangled into pigtails. She has a cotton dress along with a woolly sweater and matching boots. Ella is one of those dolls that both surprised and thrilled me with her final look. I always have a “plan” for my dolls but they don’t always come out exactly the way I think they will. It’s so much fun to watch them come to life under my fingertips. It’s almost like magic.
Ella has already found a home but if you are looking for a November Morning Doll of your own, I have 2 spots left for the year. That’s right, just two, one spot for September and one for October! Right now I offer a 14″ or 18″ doll. Each listing is for an 18″ doll but if you would like a 14″, please just let me know when you check out. (The deposit is the same regardless and I can adjust the balance for size. So, no worries about that.) I’m hoping to have a baby style doll soon, but I don’t expect to have any custom spots until after the new year. I know, I know! It’s still Summer and I’m already planning for 2016! I do hope to have a few surprises for you between now and then (perhaps some holiday elves), but we will have to see what the days bring!
