Rag Dolls (Part 1)

When I was little my Nanna (my Mum’s sister) made me a very pretty rag doll – Emily. Emily was very special, her little white dress with red polka dots, frilly knickers and plaited brown wool hair where all lovingly put together, everything was washable and super practical, very important as Emily went everywhere with me. To keep up with tradition, I too am contemplating making a rag doll for my niece… but being the Aunt that I am, this is not going to be a run of the mill rag doll, no siree! I am thinking envy of the playgroup kinda rag dolly – gorgeously cuddly, very unusual, super soft and (if possible) very pretty!

As part of my research into the ultimate rag doll, I have stumbled upon many great examples of unusual rag dolls. Here is my latest favorite. It’s made by Slovenian Studio 13. Cute hey?

Did you have a rag doll (or such) as a child? Do you remember what she looked like? I would love to hear your rag doll story.

    Love these cool cats! My friend in Poland has just started making cute fabric creatures and made me a little sheep for my birthday, it is just too precious! There’s nothing better than receiving a handmade gift.
