The first is a very special art yarn wreath made especially to house 4 removable handmade dolls, each one representing a different season of the year, and meant to be played with and loved by a very lucky child:
These dolls are similar in style to the Jess Brown dolls (like the doll in the enchanting book "Kiki and Coco in Paris"), each lovingly handmade by a very talented maker named Celine. She usually makes much larger dolls, but we collaborated for this special Four Seasons Project, and she created 4 one of a kind smaller versions of her dolls, just for this wreath!
If you would like to check out Celine's larger dolls, this is her Etsy shop link:
The wreath base itself has four different sets of decorations...handmade 100% wool roses...handmade felt owls...and these adorable needle felted critters
Strawberry for Spring
Rose for Summer
Mushroom for Autumn
Poinsettia for Winter
(notice the smiling faces on each).
Here's a close up of Spring, so you can just see the enchanting details of these dolls:
Another project is my first Asian doll. She is 13 inches tall, with the SOFTEST handspun black merino hair (and lots of pink highlights)...her little dress and needle felted friend that she will come with are below...can you guess her theme?
Finally, I am working on the wreath for my contest winner's doll--it will actually be for her 14" Dragonfly's Hollow doll, and we are in the process of picking out all the details to create a VERY special home for her!
Have a wonderful week! I'll keep you posted with these current projects are complete.
Thanks for sharing the process of creation with me,
Once Upon A Doll
