Soft, sweet dolls that are handmade with love and look like art? We’re big fans. And when you can add personalization? Even better.
We love the simple, lovely elegance of these handmade dolls from the blita shop on Etsy. Each one is carefully double-sewn in Portugal of quilting cottons and felt, stuffed with polyester, and given a sweetly embroidered face. Just like our kids, they’re tough and beautiful and ready for adventure.
There’s even a personalization option on this Red Riding Hood Doll: just tell them which name and which fabric you’d like for the hood, and your doll will arrive with a printed and sewn tag on the back of her cape. The shop owner is also happy to remove any buttons, should you be gifting the doll to a curious and mouthy kid under three.
Plastic might be forever, but there’s so much to be said for soft, cuddly fabric handmade with love. Especially if your name’s on it. –Delilah
