Handmade Textile Art Dolls
These are some of the textile dolls and heads I made during the lockdown. The dolls are inspired by old vintage patterns. All the fabrics are very high quality..beautiful grey linen for the girls outfits and wool accessories. The boy doll wears a harris teed hat and trousers. Merino wool for the knitted or crocheted garments.All the faces are hand embroidered, individual, unique little heirlooms. For decoration only. The stuffing is 100% wool.
All dolls and more are available in my Etsy shop. .
