Little Patchwork Dolls
Little Patchwork Doll
This is a series of ornaments/wall hangings that I designed and made not just for holidays, but for any day of the year.
I really enjoyed reading the many stories of different cultures and religions and the celebrations and customs that are observed.
The dolls are all unique! Each has an object representative of various world holidays on the back, so the ornaments are reversible! ie: Hanukkah Doll/Menorah
While realizing that there are hundreds and hundreds of different celebrations, I have chosen just a handful. There are simply not enough hours in the day! Please note that these dolls are MY artistic interpretations and are not meant as religious/cultural icons. I have tried, and hopefully succeeded, to capture a very small part of each holiday celebration. Every culture is special and has fascinating history behind the celebrations that I myself would like to share with you!
The doll heads/faces are made from dollknit fabric, and hand-drawn; the patchwork ornament is 4” x 4” and is hand and machine embroidered. The designs on the backs are hand appliquéd and embroidered. Each comes with a hanging cord. There will be a short version of the celebration story sent with each doll.
Below are several Patchwork Ornaments I have made in the past several years. If you would like a special or custom ornament, please CONTACT ME
