Welcome to my dollmaking journal. I write doll stories, share tips on this creative journey and so much more. Hope you enjoy your visit!.

Woodland doll ears for everybody…and some new wands.

Woodland doll ears for everybody…and some new wands.

A quick announcement to let you know I have been up to no good, and so has the resident woodworker. Read on.

Aoki wearing a cute set of cat ears! by Fig and Me. (doll ears available for purchase on my BigCartel store).

A week or so ago, when Pia arrived in her new home, all resident dolls started requesting to borrow her bear ears. Since Pia is such a well-mannered child she obviously agreed and let everybody used her most favourite set of ears. 

However, I know how little dolls get cross when they have to share their stuff all the time, and since her Mom asked me to make a few more ears for the other dolls, I got busy cutting, pinning, sewing and giggling in the studio. 

The result is a few sets of ears for your dolls. You can find them in my SHOP

Fox ears for your lovely doll. via Fig and Me. 

A sweet set of alpaca/mohair bear ears for your handmade doll, via Fig and Me. 

And of course, deer ears with antlers too. Via Fig and Me. 

Now all these sweet ears are hand-sewn to barrettes so you can place them on your doll's head in whichever way you like. They all measure roughly 1,5" to 2,5" in length so I recommend them for smaller dolls. They are modelled by Aoki (a 15" Little Fig) and Rayne (an 18" Petite Fig). They might look just too small on your figlettes because they have larger heads. 

If you have visited the shop by now, you will see that there are also a few Wool Wands available for purchase. My talented husband decided to make just one more batch in this size before diving deep into creating a smaller wand for stuffing tiny dolls. So if you are looking for one, now is your chance to get one

This time he chose ash, cherry, curly maple and walnut and accented them with yellow and purple heart. As usual, these are just not helpful tools but they are truly so beautiful and created with so much care. I do hope you get one (and I won't lie, I am salivating at the thought of smaller wands for my tiny dolls too!). 

So that's it my dear friends (or should I have said 'deer'?)..hehe. We will be traveling north to mail Blair and Mackenzie, as well as any wands purchased and woodland ears. I shall be back early next week with the first instalment (so much to show!) of Aoki and Amanda's magical wardrobe, and show her mother and all of you, the shenanigans these two get up to.

Til then, I wish you a lovely weekend. Stitchy Notes goes out this Sunday and it's a good one!.
