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.

Doll Clothing $65-$85

Ceremonial Doll Clothing: This option was requested recently and we thought it was a fun option.  We will make a miniature version of the communion gown for your daughter’s favorite doll.  We currently have patterns to fit the American Girl or Cabbage Patch Dolls.  What a lovely heirloom to have.

Erin Spear sent her very lacy wedding dress to have a unisex baptism gown made from it. She wanted us to use the lace but was hoping for something her son could wear as well as any future daughters.

We decided to make the gown in our "angel" style. We made the bodice from the WD satin with some ribbon pleats and added a collar so that the bodice was a little more masculine. For the skirt, we used the lace over the satin. We finished the gown off with a removable sash.

Richard Poor sent his grandmother's wedding dress from 1952 to have this unisex christening gown made. The wedding dress was made of a very high quality satin but didn't have a lot of augmentation to it. What it did have, we used. There was some interesting little "scroll" elements on the bodice that we were able to incorporate into the bib collar. We also used the covered buttons as accents.

The wedding dress was constructed with rather thin panels of fabric seamed together for the skirt--which made it impossible to construct the gown without a seam down the center front so, we placed a ribbon down the front to cover the seam and add a nice element.

Nicole Mitchell sent her wedding dress to have us make christening outfits. She wanted our Gown & Romper combo with a jacket and accessories. We chose to make a sleeveless gown because the satin was pretty heavy. There was such pretty embroidery and bead work that we wanted to keep--which required a rather long skirt. We also used some of the embroidery on the faux vest of the romper. We also used the embroidery on the jacket in a way that allows the jacket to be used with either the gown or the romper. We also made a matching bib and unisex bonnet as well as several kerchiefs as keepsakes of the dress for family.
