So...for a long time now, I have wanted to offer sock dollies in other races. The rub has been that they do not make baby socks in brown and other earth toned colors that would work for this. Not even for little boys. Oh yes...they have blue and green and sometimes a khaki, but trying to find brown, black, or even a light olive has been impossible. So, I started to make some little dollies out of felt. They are in the same spirit and shape as the sock dollies, but they use felt instead. Here is a christening one that I made for a customer request. Again, sorry for the photos...not the best, but you get the idea. Even though you can't tell from the pictures, the eyelashes actually show up quite nicely. I'm loving her. What do you think?
