I love the simplicity and purity of bendy dolls, especially when they celebrate the earth and seasons.
Do you know Salley Mavor from Wee Folk Studio? Her work is exquisite and she is truly inspirational.
Bendy dolls are so rewarding to make, so in honour of their purity I developed the PIXIKINS....
Little free spirited elves that live where their hearts are most needed...
There are so many possibilities to the Pixikins and their tutorials and instructions are a great starting to a young creative, developing mind...
Please click on the side links and be swept away to more Pixikin paradise!!
Thank you for checking in,
VERITY HOPE DOLLS are fun and EASY TO MAKE and measure about 7 inches tall (18 cm).
You get to make the doll, ALL the outfits shown in the photos, a little rustic basket and pretty posy of flowers.
MIX and MATCH the clothing patterns to make different characters (three variations shown).

Pixikin Floria would like to show how she was assembled:
She is made from a wire armature and bead head...
I joined the hair and hat together first before placing on the head...
I used wool roving for her hair, plaited it and then stuck it inside her hat:
An image showing the embroidery detail on her jumpsuit. I used tiny french knots and detached chain stitch....
Now shes ALMOST finished...
