Is winter here yet? Because these handmade sock dolls make me feel so warm already. Are you feeling it too?
Here is what she said about soft toys "As an Early Childhood Teacher, I can see the benefit of children having significant dolls in their lives. They bring comfort, joy and encourage play, whether it is; a friend to sleep with, a doll to role play with or a mobile to gaze in wonder at."
I agree with her, sometime in this chaotic world who is a better companion than a patient, silent a Teddy Bear, a kind of bunny, fox, penguin or a handmade doll?
Her sock dolls are just adorable. I particularly like how she made these dolls with hands in the pockets and heart shape in the center. Don't you just want to give them a BIG hug?
The expressions on these dolls just captured my attention. My caption would be "hi" "I'm listening" "you got all my attention".
Miriam Ollis - the artist made this hair free sock doll for a little boy who lost his hair due to chemo. I was touched by her story. Her heart must be made of gold. So sweet.
So stop by her etsy shop and support her work.
