Lilly

Image

I had a hard time picking Lilly’s name. Her colours are green and yellow, so I know she loves daylillies, but then I saw a photo of a beautiful jasmine flower that was white with yellow in the middle. But the name Jasmine didn’t seem to suit her… In any case this little one is very sweet, loving flowers of all kinds, and especially those oh so rare warm sunny evenings in the fall where the light slants through the falling golden leaves and stretches across the pasture.

Her hair has been crocheted and is made of 8 ounces of handspun llama and mohair blend locks. Her features are hand embroidered from french thread. Her body is softly but firmly stuffed, giving her a slightly squishy and cuddly feel! Her wool stuffing brings warmth with touch, like she is giving a hug in return!

The dress closes with two vintage iridescent glass buttons in the back, and has adorable puffed sleeves. She has khaki linen bloomers with a ruffle, as well as crochet wool boots and an alpaca shawl to keep her warm on chilly days! She has a matching crochet flower hair tie with a ribbon for her hair.

Lilly is recommended for either a collector, or a girl over the age of 5, due to the small buttons, delicate fabric, and the hand sewn nature of its production. These dolls are meant to be played with, but gentleness and love are recommended! Her hair needs special gentleness because of the weave and fibres, which will unravel a bit with too vigorous of play.

She is for sale on my Etsy shop here if you would like to take her home!

Fionnula

When I was designing Fionnula, I had specific preconceived clothes in mind for her. However when she saw what I had planned she was very insistent that those were NOT her colours! Fionnula most definitely has specific tastes and knows what she likes! So down I dug into my fabric, and found this beautiful Nani Iro watercolour floral print. She liked it immediately, and set about telling me how she would like it made. When her beautiful dress was finished she informed me she was cold, so down I dug once again into my cellar of fabric, and she was content with the yellow velveteen. And how cashing does she look, she was right!

Fionnula was also insistent during her photo shoot! She asked for a tea party! I didn’t know this before, but she LOVES tea parties! Her gift is service, she loves to have people over and serve them hot delicious tea and handmade delectables. She is quite a story teller, regaling her companions with news and learnings. Fionnula loves fairy tales and poetry, lying on the grass looking up at the clouds and imagining herself in some ancient Irish stories and folklore.
