Baby: a little bit of heaven sent down to Earth
It’s been a while since the last baby I made for adoption. Having a little baby of my own has proven to be a little harder than I predicted, especially because I already had a little girl in the house. I find the second child to be way harder than the first. So even though I have many ideas in my head. Most of these cloth babies will come to life way slower than before. I don’t want to sacrifice my time with my kids but I also need to make dolls as an outlet for my creativity and my sanity. I’m sorry to say I don’t plan on making custom dolls for a long time, probably until the baby is at least a year old and or has a set sleeping routine. Now let me introduce you to my new wool and cloth creation.
A bit of heaven has definitely fallen into our house. This baby boy is the cutest little thing you’ll ever see. I am not really the religious kind, but this little boy is certainly more than an angel. He sleeps most of the time and he smiles while he sleeps. I don’t think I have ever heard him cry, that’s how good he is. When you look at this baby a feeling of serenity strikes you and you can do nothing else but smile. You will find it is hard to part with him because of all the good vibes he brings.
Even though I don’t like to subscribe into any religion at all, I do love everything that has to do with magic. So having this special and somewhat magical being in our home made me want to give him a special name, a big name, the name of a king if you may, but a humble one. So I decided to name him Jesús and that name fits him like a glove.
Let me tell you that Jesús is very excited to find a new home. I really hope he can find a family to spend Christmas with. I must say Christmas is my favorite time of the year, one of the most magical holidays and babies are the best Christmas gift anyone could get.
If you’d like to take this very special baby home, you may want to know that he is a little under 6 inch and a natural fibers art baby doll. As most of you know tiny babies are sometimes harder to make than big ones. He’s filled with clean carded wool. His skin is DWE in mocha color. His head is carefully and firmly needle felted and then covered with doll skin and soft sculpted to make the features more noticeable. His neck is floppy and needs to be supported when handled. His legs and arms are string jointed 3 times with strong upholstery thread. Jesús is fully soft sculpted and anatomically correct. Jesús’ black hair is wild loop mohair yarn crocheted into a wig cap and then sewn to his head. His eyes have been hand embroidered with cotton embroidery floss in black. His blushing is made with red orange beeswax. He was made with attention to detail and lots of love in a smoke free home.
Jesús will go home only with his swaddle diaper, his mohair crocheted cocoon, and a traveling friend.
Jesús’ adoption fee is 180 USD plus shipping ( shipping in Mexico is free, 13 USDollars for the rest of the world)
If you would like to see more photos of Jesús you can see them in his album.
Jesús is now available for adoption in the shop.
