I once made dolls for my oldest daughter Lily when she turned 3. I didn't know how she would take to them but surprisingly she fell in love with each one. I think she liked the fact that they were soft and looked handmade.
If you also prefer handmade for your little ones please take a look at today's guest giveaway courtesy of The Handmaden.
This darling doll pictured to left is named Lil' Mim! And will be loved by one lucky Grosgrain reader.
She is 12 inches tall, made with natural materials like cotton tricot and stuffed with clean carded wool. Her hair is alpaca yarn and cape and shoes are hand dyed wool felt. Her clothes are removable.
Her character is based on one of her daughters and she is very cute, innocent and often gets herself into trouble!
You can expect to see lots of Lil' Mim dolls appearing in her store, each one unique with her own hair colour and style, skin and eye colour and clothing.
If you would love to custom make a Lil' Mim doll, please convo Kelly to discuss your particular requirements. Prices start at $60 for a 12 inch doll. 10 inch dolls are also available.
And to learn more about Kelly visit her blog at www.thehandmaden.blogspot.com.
