Sleep-Sack Baby Doll (A)
8 inches of Hand-stitched adorableness!
This version of the doll is wearing a custom hat that has been sewn to their little noggin so it cannot be lost. It is appropriate for small children as there are no chocking hazards.
These wee sleeping babies are wearing their night time sleeping sacks to stay warm and cozy. The clothing items on this doll are not removable making it perfect for little hands to snuggle and love.
I like to stuff them with scraps fabric and bits of leftover commercial stuffing or even bits of wool fiber. I have always been one to save the small bits leftover from working on projects because it still might be useful! I like to reduce waste when I can. This is how these babies were born. I had some scraps and wanted to stuff them into a little dolly. I also had a thrifted sweater that It thought would make a snuggly outfit. The first little doll turned out so cute that I had to make more! Now whenever I fill up my scrap jar- it's time to make another Sleep-Sack Baby doll!
Each piece is seamed two or three time to ensure strength and durability. The body pieces and sleep sack pieces are sewn with my machine, but all the rest is hand-stitched. I take much pleasure in embroidering their little sleeping faces and then giving them. touch of rosiness to their cheeks with a beeswax crayon.
It's fun to make these with all-natural materials, however I get most excited when I can just pull from what is available. If you desire a baby made from all natural materials or if animal fibers need to be avoided please make this noted in your order by leaving a comment before completing your purchase.
Usually the skin fabric is made from a soft cotton flannel. I find there are nice skin-tone options at the local craft store in this fabric. Just in case you have a preference in skin-tone color there is a drop down menu where you need to select a skin-tone preference, if you have no preference select "surprise me". If you are ordering more than one doll, you will need to add each separately to your cart if they are to be different skin-tones.
Due to the creative process I used in making these dolls, the color of their sleep sacks and style of their hats may vary. If you have a color request you may leave a comment on your order and I will do my best.
