Patch, a little Fall baby

Everyone must take time to sit and watch the leaves turn.

-Elizabeth Lawrence

Tulum is not a great place to watch the seasons, it is mostly summer all year long. However, if you really pay attention and you watch closely, you can see the green leaves turn into shades of yellow, red, orange, and brown during the Fall. The air gets a little chilly at night and sometimes you even crave for a warm drink in the afternoon. It was one of those afternoons when I was craving a warm cup of apple cider that I saw Patch for the first time.

Like I said before you need to pay attention to see Autumn in this town, and that is exactly what I was doing. I was looking at the trees looking for those Fall colors, and then I saw this little baby crawling around. Everything she touched turned yellow, orange, red, or brown. It was like magic. This little baby was actually making the leaves turn. Of course she’s just a baby so she really doesn’t know she’s making all of this magic.  She’s so adorable and it’s always smiling, she makes me smile just by looking at her.

I have been doing some research about this little girl and apparently she’s an Autumn creature that helps with the color changing of the season. Every plant and animal worldwide are happy to see these creatures turn whole landscapes to golden pieces of art.

Now, the interesting part of all this is that they are born in places like Tulum, warm countries where they can start their lives and practice their magic. Once they start growing they move onto colder climates where they can go and let all their magic out. Isn’t that fascinating?! Well, I think it is.

I am not 100% sure how Patch is supposed to move on to a colder place but from what I’ve read I believe she needs to find a way to travel there. Since I can’t think of another way of helping her do that I decided that maybe I can send her off with one of you.

So, if you love Autumn and would like to share your home with a magical creature that will make the air crisper and the colors warmers, you may want to adopt this little Patch.

Patch is an 8 inch natural fibers art baby doll. She’s filled with clean carded wool. Her skin is DWE in fair color. Her head is needle felted and then covered with doll skin and soft sculpted to make the features more noticeable.  Her neck is floppy and needs to be supported when handled. Patch has a cute little tushie and a belly button. Patch’s blonde hair is wild brushable mohair yarn crocheted into a wig cap and then gently brushed to get the fibers longer. The hair can be gently brushed and styled different ways. Her closed smiling eyes are hand embroidered with cotton embroidery floss in black. Her blushing is made with red/orange beeswax.

Patch will go home with the clothes shown in the photos, which includes:

  • A handmade green cotton diaper
  • A handmade light green wool blend felt dress
  • A pair of light brown leg warmers with hand painted detail.
  • A hand crocheted orange and green shirt that can be worn as a sweater also.
  • A pair of light yellow booties
  • A handmade orange wool blend felt hat.

All my babies travel wrapped in a blanket and with a travel companion.

Patch’s adoption fee is 160 USDollars plus shipping (shipping to Mexico is free, 13 USDollars for the rest of the world)

If you would like to see more photos of Patch you can see them in her album here.

If you would like to take this magical creature home just fill the comment form below stating that you would like to adopt her. If there is more than one person interested I will draw a name to choose her new family. I will take entries for Patch until tomorrow Sunday September 16, 2018 at 9pm EST. Once the family is selected I will contact them and send a PayPal invoice. The invoice is due upon receipt. In the event that Patch does not find a family in the time stated before I will list her in my shop and announce it on Facebook and Instagram.

  1. Dear Aubrey, I would very much like to be Patch’s mum. My hometown is surrrounded with big forests and vineyards.So she could have a lot of fun by crawling around and make the leaves turn.
