Clover...snuggles, giggles and kittens

23 May 2014

Clover is one of my new Mabel My Dear dolls a slightly chubbier, snugglier doll ,
A little Kindergarten child full of wonder and eagerness and fun
 and sudden tiredness when it all gets to be too much
 and she needs to climb up on to your lap for a cuddle and a snooze.

Clover loves let's pretend games and kittens
and sometimes even the let's pretend to be a kitten game, miaow, miaow.

I have so enjoyed watching her come to life.
We had a few moments with the hair colour but this white blonde has turned out to be just right.
And then I went all around the chimneys with her clothes but ended up with such cuteness, I am so pleased with it. I love the soft crispness for her dress and  bloomers.

The details...
Clover is made from cotton tricot skin fabric and Tasmanian wool stuffing.
Her face is hand embroidered.
Her pretty hair is baby mohair locks from Queeensland attached to a knitted cap.

She is wearing a linen dress with a small flower print and trimmed with a gorgeous cotton ribbon bow. The dress fastens with mother of pearl buttons.
Her bloomers are also linen and trimmed with a French lace edging and a tiny wooden kitten button.

She has hand knit woollen shoes with wooden flower buttons and a hand knit beanie made from Malabrigo Rios yarn.

This doll is not recommended for children aged 3 years or younger.
She would best suit an older child who loves her dolls and doll play or an adult collector.

CLOVER has found a home, thank you
