This little Sleepy Gnome is currently available. She is made from organic cotton sherpa and angora. A bell has been securely placed in her tummy and it makes a soft, soothing twinkle sound. The pink mushroom rattle is made from organic sherpa, angora and cashmere and is sold separately. You can find more information about these two by visiting the shop.
This Sleepy Gnome and his cashmere snowman friend were just so much fun to make! I am a total sucker for freckles after all. I'm also happy to announce that the snow has arrived, and just in time for an outdoor photo shoot.
The girls are finished and in the shop! All Halloween orders will be shipped out using USPS Priority Mail and should arrive anywhere in the US in 3-5 days. International orders are shipped via USPS First Class Mail.
I've become pretty attached to these little ladies over the past few weeks, at first there was just the one and I working late into the night, then there were two and finally it became the three of us. I hope they find wonderful homes this season and that they are able to add a little Halloween cheer to someones day.
A Little Halloween
Little Halloween hats for Little Halloween heads. The Darby girls have been getting on their vintage inspired clown costumes and are looking forward to spending the rest of the season cuddled up with a new friend. Perhaps with a cup of hot apple cider and a couple iced pumpkin cookies? Ok, so maybe that last part is just me.
Only three clowns were made for this Halloween, but I had some extra fabric that I didn't want to go to waste, so five hats were constructed in total and two are sitting on stand by for next year.
I may only have enough of the special tea dyed fabric left to make one or two more Halloween Darby, something to look forward to for next year for sure, and then after that there will be no more like these to follow.
Darby Snuggles are the same size as the Darby dolls (7") but they are not weighted and have embroidered hair with a sewn on cap. Snuggles are made using super soft materials like cotton flannel and cotton velour. Although loved by all ages, Snuggles are especially nice for those under 3 years old and for those who may still be mouthing their toys.
Machine wash on cool/gentle cycle, air dry.
New faces, New Friends
This is the best part of doll making, the part when all the materials come together and you have this new little face looking back at you. Hello sweet friend, it's so nice to meet you.
My name is Shannon and I live in Alaska with my husband and our two sons. My sewing studio is nestled within the ever inspiring Tongas National Rainforest. I've always loved being surrounded by nature and try to incorporate a natural or woodland theme into all of my creations.
