"My Own Sweet Doll"

















My own sweet dolls...

I can hardly believe this was nearly a year ago! My sweet girls were Angelina & Alice for Halloween...one of my favorite piccys of them to date, as this is just so "typical" of each of them!

It's these sweet girls that inspired my latest creation....



"MY OWN SWEET DOLL"
"My Own Sweet Doll" is a vintage-inspired album handmade from fabric, vintage images on fabric, vintage tatting and trims, vintage child's collar and so many other incredible details! This album was created to be an heirloom....a place to keep treasures that are special to our little girls. Cards, pictures, photographs and even small objects will fit perfectly in the pockets of this over-the-top sweet fabric book. Imagine your daughter thumbing through this with HER daughter, looking at all her childhood treasures!






The "cover" is made out of a rich, quilted Durham rose fabric and features incredible scalloped edges. The inside "pages" are fashioned from linen, barkcloth and even vintage linens! Incredible embroidery is seen througout, some of it hand-embroidered by me and some vintage.






Included with this book are all the sweet offerings you see in the photos...
~a tiny vintage bisque doll in her original pink frock
~ 2 large unused vintage baby cards
~ sweet "Encore" vintage card (don't miss her glittery dress!)
~ 3 "doll" tags made of wood and decopauged



Also included is a custom-created personalization of this book. One way this book could be customized is for me to embroider your daughter's name on the front of the book. Another option would be for you to email me a photo of your daughter that you'd like printed on fabric and then sewn into the book.

Also, if you are interested in commissioning me to make a custom book for you or a loved one, please contact me, as I ADORE doing custom projects! :)

Here's a few photos of the details, but this is just a PEEK...so be sure to go check out my auction for ALL the piccys!
