Doll #3

The two previous dolls I shared and sold have names now! Crystal and Addison. The girls who received the dolls looked so happy and that was a great feeling being the creator!

I’ll be honest when I was younger, dolls never were my thing. I had these eerie feelings they would come alive and you know, run around with a knife in their hands. Haha. πŸ˜€ One year my oldest sister bought me a porcelain doll that played music, it was beautiful and I named her Juliet but deep down inside it freaked me out. I think I still have it and it might…be in the closet packed away? πŸ˜‰ I’ll look one of these days to see if it is there. Anyway what I was saying was that I never thought I’d be sewing dolls since they freaked me out so much as a child. There is definitely a rewarding feeling I get when I make my dolls and I have come to appreciate the work and craftsmanship that is behind each handmade doll. Roughly estimating, one doll takes me about 12 hours to make if I do it non stop and skip meals completely! Whew, that’s a lot of time!

I started working on another doll shortly after Crystal and Addison. She is the same as the other two just with a few small difference in her clothing. I will be listing her at EtsyΒ soon. Here she is. I wonder what her future owner will name her? For now she will be Caydi. πŸ˜‰

    1. Hi Ka! At the moment I am not. With a few things and a upcoming trip soon I’ve not had time to make any new ones but hopefully by late June I will again. πŸ™‚

  1. Hi Yengy!
    I am blown away by your talent and detailed work! I just followed your blog <3. I'll be moving into my new apartment in the next two months, so I'm planning on purchasing some pillows from you! Do you also take orders on custom prints? My partner is Italian African American, so I would love to order a pillow of a boy with a darker skin color :). Let me know!

    XOO,
    Lisa Estrella
