I've been happily working away on a commission for vegetable drawings this month, which will be used to illustrate recipes. Such a satisfying job and so nice to have a little break from sewing. Here is a selection of the images I've finished using pen and water colour.
I'm making the finishing touches to my latest group of tiny dolls this week. They will be available to purchase via my online store Friday 23 August, from 10 am (Sydney time - AEST).
These ladies have taken me almost two months to complete. I think I'm getting slower! I have been working on some other things in that time though, so I guess that's ok. I wish I could make a lot more each year, than I seem to be able to manage...
Each doll measures around 20 cm and is handmade from carefully salvaged second-hand and vintage fabric and firmly stuffed with wool. Bearing a small 'Willowynn' logo hand-drawn onto the inside of one leg, each doll comes with a small signed, dated and letter-pressed certificate of authenticity, in a recycled cardboard gift box made my myself.
Please be aware that my dolls are intended for display only and are not suitable as a toy for young children; due to delicate hand stitching, hair and small buttons.
They are priced from AU$380 each + shipping from Australia. I should also point out that I (regrettably) don't have a reserved cart in my online store. So you'll need to move quickly through the checkout process!
