Today is the last day to order a doll for Christmas arrival! I have these 8 dolls in stock now and ready to ship. Get one while you can!
From my Etsy shop feedback:
"After my Pappa died, my daughter wrote Santa to tell him that she wanted a stuffed Pappa doll to help her remember him. We live next door & they were very close - it's been a hard loss for her. I am so glad that Santa found her this doll from Hen And Chick because she absolutely loves her Pappa doll (and so does the rest of my family, especially my grandma). Thank you so much, Rachel, for being so wonderful to work with, for putting so much love into this doll and for helping my daughter heal :)"
I have been wanting to make Mary Poppins doll for a while, so I was really excited when a sweet mama from Winnipeg contacted me about making a custom Mary Poppins doll for her little one.
This is the outfit from the "Spoon Full of Sugar" scene. I knew she needed a lacy blouse, red bow tie, navy skirt, and of course, the magic carpet bag.
Blue eyes and brown hair with buns and pin curls, too.
Here's a peek at what she looked like in-progress:
At some point, I want to do another version of this doll, but with the cherry-festooned hat and parrot umbrella.
I'm dying to know: what story book character would you like to see me make next? Let me know in the comments!
UPDATE: 7/18/13 I now have a special listing in my shop for custom Mary Poppins Doll! Check it out!
When Yanique contacted me about making a custom doll family resembling her family, I was immediately excited. I was well acquainted with the family's stylishness and gorgeousness from being an Instagram follower of Yanique's (@yan_o_gram). I mean, look at this sweet family.
