Meet Spring and Sakura ("cherry blossom" in Japanese), two custom dolls I just completed for two very special sisters...
Sakura is for the older sister...she loves sushi (as you can see). Her hair is a mix of spectacular hand spun art yarn by Rainbow Twist Shop and a handspun merino I dyed myself. Her outfit was made especially for her by Molly's Playground, and features adorable little geishas in it!
Spring is for the younger sister--a little girl who loves rainbows and monsters, thus her best friend the little rainbow monster (his name is Finian, by the way). Spring's pastel rainbow of hair is a mix of myriad hand spun yarns...I just love her sparkling blue eyes.
Finian the Rainbow monster was specially needle felted for her by 13 Chestnuts!
Sakura comes with a plate of clay sushi, handmade by my son!
Sakura and Spring sit and stand beautifully in their 100% wool felt shoes made with contrast stitching...they will begin their journey home tomorrow.
Thanks so much for the honor of making custom dolls for you to love, girls....
Once Upon A Doll
P.S....I will be listing two more custom slots in my etsy shop later this week, so watch for them if you have a child for whom you would like me to design a special doll...
