Sparkle Starling Doll Giveaway and a Shop Update!

Hey there!  I'm super excited to say that I'm having another GIVEAWAY!!  I've been working on a small batch of Sparkle Starling dolls that I'll be listing in my shop this coming Saturday, but one of them will be up for grabs for a lucky winner!
This sweet girl is machine sewn with hand embroidered and hand coloured facial features. Her hair can be gently styled and has been made from a beautiful assortment of sparkly, sequined, luxury and acrylic yarns. I've secured it to her head with stitching and glue. She is a one-of-a-kind, handmade cloth doll measuring about 15 inches tall.
She wears a pretty summer dress, the cutest little hand embroidered and sequined undies and a beautiful cashmere wrap cardigan, hand knitted by my Mum (Myfairdolly).  All clothing items are completely removable.

Shop Update - New Stuffs!!

Great news y'all!!  I've got a few new goodies in store for you!  My fav of all is the scrumptious Hand Over Dyed fabric!  It is SO GORGEOUS!!  When I first got into doll making, this is the felt I used to make my Pocket Pixies, Woodland and Sweet Stufflings, Gingerbelles, etc.  I have wanted to offer this felt in my Etsy shop forever and let me tell you, nothing compares to it!  I have hand chosen 42 beautiful colours, which I know you'll love and they're available in 8.5 x 13 inch sheets.
Aren't they stunning!!??  Just one problem though...  unfortunately, I've become so allergic to them that I have to wear a double mask while working with them :(  Oh, I can't tell you how upset I am about this!!  I had so many plans!!  So, I will only be selling what I have on hand and when they're gone, that'll be it, I won't be able to stock anymore.  Because of this, I'm selling them for a steal - $5.00 a sheet which is just barely covering the cost of them.
Here's a look at the swatch card.  Because the fabric is hand dyed, each sheet will have slight or noticeable colour variations.  It is also great for wool appliqué, penny rugs and rug hooking.
 Click on them to see the close-up view.
Below are a few examples of the things I've made with this wool in the past.

Patterned felt (above):

Have a lovely weekend!
