*Do you make custom order dolls?
I am not taking custom orders at this time – effective January 2017
*Do you do other custom sewing?
I don’t, sorry!
*How can I know when you have new dolls available?
Joining my email newsletter is a good way to get updates on the state of my work and my shop.
*What are the dolls made from?
I make the dolls from fabrics that appeal to me – these include cottons, micro chenille, fleece, and different types of faux fur. For the people dolls, the ‘skin’ is a high quality European-made cotton interlock. Dolls are stuffed firmly with polyfill.
*Can the dolls be washed?
This is a tricky one, and it depends on the doll. To avoid heartbreak after a wash cycle I recommend hand washing or spot washing and air drying.
*My doll’s faux fur hair is matted, can that be fixed?
Usually. Sometimes all it takes is a brushing with a very fine toothed comb. I talk about this here
*Can you fix my doll?
Most likely yes! I am always happy to fix the dolls I have made. If you are outside of Saskatoon, shipping will be your responsibility. Please contact me first if you plan to send a doll my way.
*What makes the doll’s cheeks red, and why does it eventually come off?
This is done with a colored beeswax, and because it is a natural material it will eventually wear from the fabric with play. I am happy to include an extra little piece of fabric with some of the beeswax on it so that you can re-rosy the cheeks as needed, just ask.
