Woodland Fairy Dolls

I adore this little mother and daughter doll set which I created as a gift for a young girl. The pattern is taken from a ‘kokeshi’ doll design, but this particular project was adapted to suit the style that I wanted to create; firstly by creating the dolls to my liking, adding an embroidered design on their bodies, then adding wings to their backs. The addition of a flower and mushroom just seemed to add that fairy woodland feel to the whole creation. Definitely a unique gift.

Here are some other adapted kokeshi dolls I designed myself with various individual character infusions.

Chinese Crochet Dolls

This is the Goth family from China. I had this very interesting idea of making crocheted sets of families that would have some kind of personalities of their own. The cute little dolls come with their own passports and a family background. This young family pictured below are very much into the modern goth influences.

Each doll possesses its own authentic passport, issued by The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Doll Republic of China, because obviously, in order to travel they require identity documents!



I made many sets of these family gifts and sold them all.  Check out my Etsy Store for the Sheng Li family in my stock.
