Clothes and fabrics can hold such powerful memories - Dad's years of wear jacket, Gran's controversial taste in curtains, a school blazer, a favourite football shirt, a work uniform, an infants precious baby grows and bibs - we want to keep them all, but logically we know storing them is not practical, and they may fade from memory.
Our Rag Doll is a lovely way to keep a selection of your special fabrics in a practical, companionable, and huggable way.
Our skilled seamstress can create your keepsake Doll with a single large item or a range of fabrics. Let us know if a particular part of an item has significance - that pocket that always dispensed mint imperials - a cuff stained from hours of hobby work ... our seamstress will do her best to respect your special memory. Stretch and delicate fabrics will be lined for support.
We use our own fabrics for Dolly's her face, arms, legs and boots. You can choose blonde, light brown or dark brown hair. Her boots and hair have ribbon bows. Your fabrics will be used to make Dolly's dress. Her skirt can be a patchwork or fabrics.
You can label items to let us know if you would like specific fabrics in specific places.
Dolly can, optionally, be personalised with an embroidered message - up to 45 letters. Personalisation will appear on Dolly's skirt.
