a princesse doll



Helen's birthday is comming up. She wished for a Rapunzel doll. Well- for her, Rapunzel is the one from the movie and she has blond hair. I asked her if she would mind, if it would be a princesse with brown hair (since I only have brown wool at hand)- and that's what I made her.

There's a very talented doll maker from Spain- I guess her name is Ana- and I just love her dolls. I let myself inspire from her work and I am quite happy with my prototype.. some things I would have to change next time (If there will be a next time- but I have a feeling that neomi will want a doll too). The head is a bit asymetric and I would make it a bit bigger.

You can check out Ana's work here. Be warned- her dolls are BEAUTIFUL!



I made a collection of clothes- like pants and dresses, skirts and socks, shawls etc for the doll, in case the princess is getting bored of her crown and princess-dress. :-)
I am not sure yet, if I should braid the hair or not...
