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.

  75. Hand embroidery is really not suffering with a lack of quality it is really a mind blowing technique. Embroidery is this type of technique that you will automatically will be willing to spend the money for buying many type of outfits like embroidered trousers, skirts and many more outfits.
