* 3 sisters dolls

Posted on March 27th, 2005 by maitreya. Filed under Toys (cat and kid).


My very first month of softies submission: dolls of me and my sisters. It’s impossible to think of myself as a child without also thinking of my sisters, so I had to make us all. I’m the one with the glasses, Ariel’s the one with the crazy curly hair, and Radha’s the little one.

The basic body design is from Sally Mavor‘s Felt Wee Folk book. The more general design inspiration is from the Sunny, Windy, and Snowy & Chinook books by Robin Mitchell and Judith Steedman (previously gushed over here here and here).

    Oh, those are just wonderful! And fabulous that you made your sisters too. The clothing is so special. You’ve inspired me to dig out my Felt Wee Folk book and give the little folks another go!

    They are so sweet! and remind me sort of the “Sunshine Family” dolls. Does anybody else remember the Sunshine Family? Good for you for getting them done!
