Ah! Little Girls!

I don't know what it is, but I do so love to make these rather nostalgic little girl dolls. Perhaps they are comforting reminders of my own childhood - a sunny and wonderful place in the 1950's. (That sounds so long ago now!) Anyway, whatever the compulsion is to making these dolls is, here is the latest, as yet un-named. She is the model for a wig-making PDF that I am in the process of writing up for sale in my Etsy store. The wig is hand-knotted mohair.......a time-consuming process, but it makes a very fine wig if you have the patience and time.

Any suggestions for a name gratefully accepted!

Susie, she is adorable. I like the name Mia for her. By the way, I have pictures of Celeste on my blog today. ♥Judi

No, Susie, the 1950's are not so long ago. I still have a vivid memory of my dolly playin' childhood years. This young lady is just adorable. Her rosey cheekies look very pinchable!

Ah, she has beautiful brown eyes. It seems most of your dolls have blue. I love her! Could she be Johanna?

Susie, she's beautiful. As a knitter, I especially love her sweater.

Susie, I think such an old-fashioned, little girl needs a name like Harriet. Gorgeous as always.
Looking forward to the wig making PDF!

So sweet, Susie! I love seeing your Nostalgia Dolls. I think we all like to remember those simple times.

My favorites to make are little girl dolls also. I DO think it evokes something from deep within from our childhood. I love her soulful look and chubby cheeks. Maybe Petunia for a name.

Thanks for all those name suggestions - I am kind of leaning toward Johanna (thanks Mary) And you are right - I mostly do blue, green or grey eyes and brown ones less often. I love to knit, Diana - you can't really tell from this photo, but she had hand-knit socks as well in the same blue as her hat.

Heavens Susie, she looks just like my grand daughter, Millie!

Susie, this is such a sweet little girl and if I were to guess, her name is Brianne. What s sweet little face. I'm glad that you enjoy making these nostalgic little girl dolls because we all love them too. The 1950s? I remember them well. xo

She's beautiful, Susie. I look forward to the wig tutorial.

Susie McMahon said...

Oh, Millie - I like that a lot - guess I'm going to have to toss a coin!
