New doll design idea number one, a folky pillow doll with towering hair. \ (•◡•) /

new wee wonderfuls doll design

I love this gal! This is my first shot at her and I have some tinkering to do and then some fun ideas for variations that are so super cute… in my head. Hopefully they’ll be work in real life. I love this flat pillow type doll. She’s stuffed super firm so she’s not about bending limbs. I love this type of doll for a more art doll/display type deal or also a huggable pillow doll for toddlers. And without the loose flowing yarn hair she’s great for toddlers. I’m thinking the next iteration I’m going to make of her will have felt or fur hair, even more huggable for little kids. This coiled, wrap around yarn hair really isn’t that difficult and I think is a super fun look. But sewing down the yarn is sort of time consuming so I wanted to make a very simple non-fussy outfit to go with her. I tried to make the dress very stiff and flat so that it keeps a sort of cartoonish, exaggerated shape. I’m going to try it again in an even more stiff fabric. It reminds me of the outfits I made for the spoon dolls in the book. new wee wonderfuls doll design

  5. She’s soo cute! I love her hair and her dress. I also really like the Mrs. Claus doll you posted on Instagram. That style would be great for a set of Nativity dolls. They would make a nice display and the kids could play with them.

  6. I absolutely love your dolls and I was wonderring once your new subscription for the animals will you still be able to order the doll subscription? Thanks so much. Paige
