Whether you are looking for a doll that is unlike any you have seen or you are wanting a doll that looks like your child, customising a doll is the perfect solution. There is nothing like sharing in the creative process of bringing a doll to life. I love working with customers to help them conceive their perfect doll. Making unique, beautiful, one of kind dolls and sending them out to meet their new Mamas makes my heart happy.
Choices, choices and more choices!
Where to start?
Boy or girl, this should be an easy decision, maybe!
Let’s talk size. I offer a variety of sizes in my shop (12, 15 and 18 in) but I am open to any other size you may have in mind.
Now, where is this doll from? You can choose the skin tone, anywhere from pale to chololate. I use DeWitt Engel tricot fabric for the skin who offer a large range of tones.
Now, let’s get some hair on that head! You can choose between wool yarn, mohair yarn or boucle yarn, mohair weft, or Tibetan lambskin. You can choose traditional colours like Blonde, Brown or Red (all shades in between) or something a little more “out there” like pink, purple or even, dare I say, rainbow!
Is she a brown eyed girl? Or does she have baby blues? Or even mysterious green? You choose!
I always include a belly button and bum, but you can let me know if you would like knee and elbow dimples.
Your doll is nearly there, but she is naked! Once you choose your colour scheme for the clothing, I will create a dress for you and knit a co-ordinated cardi and Mary Janes. Unless, of course, you have chosen a boy, in which case he will wear a t shirt and pants/overalls and knitted shoes. Wooly Roo Dolls always come with undies. Extra clothing can be purchased, such as a boiled wool coat and knitted hat.
Ta da! How fun, we have created together your very own doll, what could be more special?
Let me know if you have any other questions,
