“You know what the great thing about babies is? They are like little bundles of hope. Like the future in a basket.”
And here is a basket of hope for you all. These new babies are part of another one of my resolutions, making a batch of more affordable babies at least once every two months. I will really try to make them once a month but I don’t know if I’ll completely succeed at it. Now these babies are basically the same as my “Nina Pattern” babies, except that these have built in clothes. They are made with organic cotton interlock and filled with soft polyester stuffing. Their faces have been soft sculpted with upholstery thread and needle and the eyes and eyebrows have been hand embroidered with 100% cotton thread. Their body is made of a print fabric that looks like a onesie. These babies are bald with either a bow or a hat as their only accessory. As with all my dolls, they will travel swaddled in a simple blanket and with a traveling friend. I want to give this design a name like “Babies in onesies”, but I know the word “onesie” is copyrighted and I really don’t want to get in trouble for that. So if you think of a name for this design let me know in the comments.
Now let me introduce you to the babies.
This is Tia. This chocolate baby girl is the older sibling and she’s a little bigger than the rest she’s 14 inches tall mostly because of the fabric I used for her body. Her skin is organic cotton interlock hand dyed to a dark brown. Her body is made with repurposed children clothing and her pink bow is made with knit fabric. Tia is also the floppiest of the batch, which is one of my favorite features. She is really posable and super cuddly.

Our little man in here is Nate. Nate is 13 inches long and his skin fabric has been hand dyed to a light tan color. His body is made with a cotton blend jersey fabric and his hat is made with repurposed children’s clothes.
If you would like to see more photos of Nate you can do so here.
This sweet brown baby girl is Flor. Her body is made with cotton interlock in a print that is certainly my favorite. Her skin fabric has been hand dyed to a cocoa brown color. Her lavender bow has been made with repurposed children’s clothing.

Bea was the last one to be born but she must have my favorite face of them all. Her fabric skin has been hand dyed to a blushed color. Her body fabric is repurposed children clothing. Her bow is made with aqua knit fabric.

Here is a photo of the back of the doll. It has been hand sewn closed 3 times. One with a thick thread and 2 with regular polyester strong thread.
As you can see all these babies have at least one part made of repurposed clothes. I want to incorporate this in my dolls too, in a way of being more eco friendly. They also have simple handmade tags that have been securely sewn with a sewing machine on triple stitch to the seam of the body.
If you are interested in these babies you may want to know their price. Their adoption fee is 55 USDollars plus shipping. Shipping inside of Mexico is free and to other parts of the world is 13 USDollars.
I am not going to offer these the way I usually do. Instead they will be on my shop tomorrow Thursday January 16, 2020 at 5pm EST. So it will be first come first serve. Make sure you set your alarms if you have your heart set on one. I won’t announce the babies are in the shop in social media, until at least 8pm tomorrow. So that way you will have first dibs on them.
Here is a direct link to the shop. That way you can see the previews and also order them tomorrow.
I hope you like these babies very much and that they find a loving home very soon. I am working on at least 3 more toy babies and a wool art baby doll. So stay tuned to see them come to life very soon.
Read you soon.
