Commission Place DEPOSIT- A Maker's Burrow Heirloom Doll
A Maker's Burrow Heirloom Dolls are handmade in a little burrow in Bendigo, Australia. Dolls are crafted using linen, cotton and wool felt. Inside they're filled with 100% wool stuffing that has been sourced from the local mill.
Clothing options available include a pinafore, shirt, pants, peter pan collared dress, knitted shawl, knitted scarf, velvet bow collar, and felt boots. A dust bag/sleeping bag and pillow set is also available.
Dolls are for gentle play and intended to be an heirloom that will be passed down through generations.
The dolls are not suitable to be played with by children under three years of age because they have little bits and bobs. However, they would make the perfect nursery decoration, until their friend is at a suitable age to play with them.
Once the deposit has been made I’ll be in contact to discuss your choice of hair colour, fabrics, outfit and accessories. Final payment is due upon completion of your doll. The amount owed is dependent on your choice of outfit and accessories- see below for price list and images for examples.
I am happy to put together fabric and felt choices for you if you tell me the colours you like, otherwise you can browse the selection of fabrics available from my suppliers listed listed below. I have access to an assortment of striped and spotted fabrics that work well used for the body of the doll, they’re not photographed but if you’ve got something in mind I will do my best to source it for you.
If you love the look of a doll I’ve made previously I’m happy to recreate the outfit and hair colours for your doll, though please keep in mind that no two faces are ever the same due to each stitch being entirely individual. Expressions are not intended and evolve once each stitch is cast. At this point of the making process I will be in contact to ensure you’re happy with her look before I piece her together.
If you've got any questions please don't hesitate to contact me on firstname.lastname@example.org
