Stuffed toy dolls made from recycled sweaters, dressed in repurposed notions, fabric, floss, buttons, and beads. Use pieces of felted sweaters to create clothing for the toys such as capes and turtlenecks. Vintage hankies make wonderful skirts, as do fabric scraps. The dolls stand approximately 14 1/2" tall. Not intended for children under 3 yrs. of age.

Oh WOW! I can't wait to get into making these little honeys. The use of recycled materials is an absolute winner, ensuring the finished product will reflect a "much loved"appearance.
Congratulations to the creator/designer!
