Inspiring Emma

Little Emma was tugging at my heart and smiling in my dreams to ask me to bring her and her “big kid” friends into being. She wanted a home and a family to love her and playful doll friends. Emma was a delight to spend my late spring days with and we had lots of fun together. We decided on a pretty pink Liberty of London cotton lawn for her pinafore dress over Birch organic knit under garments. She wished for a warm and cuddly hand knit sweater and her wish was granted with this Manos Del Uruguay super soft, ultra fine merino wool and several hours of knitting. Crocheted Malabrigo Worsted Merino shoes keep her toesies warm. We were quite pleased with everything and she was ready for her photo shoot. What a fun afternoon we had snapping photos together!

Dear little Emma found her home and is most certainly having lots of fun with her new family. Thank you so much for reading about this sweet girl!

Have a delightful day, friends!

Little Wooly Ones

Hello dear friends! Whew, it’s been a while! The leaves are changing, falling and it is getting chilly, perfect for sweaters and hot cider. Oh, how I love you October! I hope that you are enjoying the changes in your corner of the world, as well.

Lately, my thoughts have been drifting toward smaller dolls for younger children and these little 10 inch cuties are the result of my mind wanderings. They are the perfect friends for children who may not be quite ready for a dress up doll but would love a wooly child that has legs, rather than a bunting. I’m having such fun stitching them and although they are similar, each one is really one of a kind and has their own little presence. You can find them in my shop now and I’ll be adding more in the weeks to come. I hope that you love them as much as I do! Have a terrific weekend everyone!

Love and wooly hugs,

Shawn and the little ones

Happy Summer!

After a bit of a chilly start here in southeast Michigan, it seems that the warmer weather is here to stay for a while, with abundant sunshine and showers. The beautiful blooms have worked their magic in my studio and the floral fabrics on my work table are slowly taking form as wee dresses. Each little garment is stitched from premium, often organic, cotton broadcloth and has a coordinating, lined bodice. All seams are professionally finished and the metal closure snaps are hand sewn. What fun it is to snip that final thread and snap the back of the dress, ready for Elsa to model for us. It’s such a pleasure to gather a stack of colorful dresses and photograph them for the shop. I hope that you have a chance to stop by and have a look! Have a lovely day!

Love and wooly hugs,

Shawn and Elsa
