Dawn

‘You’ll never find a rainbow,

if you are looking down.’

Charlie Chaplin

Please meet Dawn, my newest little doll child.

Dawn came to life through many hours of felting, stitching, stuffing, scultping, knitting and sewing. The process of creating such whimsical and unique characters is pure joy and love from button nose to tiny toes.

Dawn is a 30cm/12inches tall cloth art doll designed and created from my imagination. Some dolls – and Dawn was definitively one of them – direct the creative way and my fingers follow along until completion. Dawn is very dear to me; a true one-of-a-kind!

Dawn is stitched from cotton jersey, filled with warm wool and metallic pellets for extra weight. Her body is needle sculpted with attention to the lovely little details such as a cute belly button and 10 happy little toes. My dolls are floppy and can only sit (and not stand) without support; this allows great posing and a cuddly feel.

Dawn has a friendly expression, sparkly black glass teddy bear eyes and a carrot read wig, sewn from a mohair weft.

Dawn is wearing cotton trousers and undies, a cotton dress, knitted booties and a warm cardigan.

Dawn will join her friends at the next Dollectable on the 1st of August 2018 at 7pm EDT (New York Time).

I would be so happy if you’d give Dawn a new home but please keep in mind that all my dolls and creations are meant as decorative items for the adult collector or older child. They are not toys due to the small parts, tiny detail and delicate nature.
