Gifts That Tie Generations Together

Dolls

This page is still being put together.  As a hobby, I like to make one-of-a-kind dolls.  They are very time consuming but a good challenge.  If you have been wanting a unique doll made for someone special, let me know what you are looking for.  Here are some of the types of dolls I make.

One of a Kind Dolls $145

I can create one-of-a-kind dolls from clothing or wedding dresses for your enjoyment.

Bobbea sent me a wedding dress to make a doll from. She wanted something unique. This is an adaptation of a pattern designed by Stephanie Novatski and published in the November 2012 Soft Dolls and Animals magazine.sddoll05webmerfordamelia01web

 

Mascot Dolls: $235

I can create a doll based on a picture or illustration.

I created this doll for Georganne Baker. It is fashioned after a sketch she sent me and is a mascot doll for a charitable organization.bag-lady-image

 

Look-alike Dolls:  $235

Dolls based on real people. Just send a couple of clear pictures that I can use.

La Befana The Christmas Witch $185

A couple of years ago, a woman asked me to make a custom doll based on a Christmas story from her childhood. I was not familiar with the Italian story of La Befana, the Christmas Witch, at the time. Now, I get to make several versions of her each year and I love it.  Each 20″ La Befana Doll is custom made. Clothing colors and fabrics will vary.   It will usually take 4-5 weeks to get her to you depending on how busy things are around here.   If you are interested in having me make her for you,
here is an order form for you to print. 

I charge $185 for the doll and $15 for shipping.

Martina Slone sent us her wedding dress to have a 36" x 48" blanket made from it. Here dress was a lot of organza and lace--which aren't exactly blanket materials. We chose to overlay the lace and organza on the lining fabrics and then back and bind the whole thing with a soft, white satin. ... See MoreSee Less

Amanda Boardman sent her wedding dress to have a unisex christening gown made for her daughter and future children. The heavy satin of her wedding dress worked well with our bishop style gown and we even were able to use some of the bling :)

Cheryl Haring wanted a little man's outfit made from her wedding dress. Our boy's romper, jacket and bow tie pin combo allowed us to use the lovely satin from her wedding dress with just a touch of the lace as well. In addition to the outfit, we made a ring pillow for the future.

Marsha McKenna sent two of her late mother's sweaters to have a couple of non-jointed memory bears made. These were the most ornately beaded sweaters I've ever seen. We wanted to capture some of the flavor of the bead work in each bear but the bead work was mostly along the outer edges of the fabric so it was challenging to incorporate. ... See MoreSee Less
