Like stardust glistening on fairies wings, little girls dreams are of magical things.
I hope you are all well and rested. I know a lot of people are going through a lot these days. It’s not been easy for us either. We lost people we love, we’ve seen many get sick, and we just can’t stand look at the news anymore. So these past couple of weeks we have made some life changing decisions. My husband is now his own boss and I couldn’t be prouder of him. We have decided that when everything calms down we will move to a nicer place. We are prioritizing family above all. We are buying less, enjoying more, and being more present for our children. I know this might be romanticizing the quarantine and I know it is not that easy for everyone. We are one of the lucky ones, the privileged I guess. I am also a little bit of a romantic and I always find silver linings.
I guess Julieta got some of my romanticism when I made her.
This sweet little baby has been in my mind for quite a while but I was somehow scared of making another big baby. The economy is suffering worldwide and I was unsure she was going to find a new home that easy. I took my time to make other babies, smaller ones, ones not so detailed, more affordable ones, yet this baby was still in the back of my head.
So I gave in and I made her. Let me tell you that even before I cut the pattern and rolled her head she was already telling me about her dress. She wanted lace, lots of lace, that was the most important thing for her. I was a little scared I was not going to have enough lace for the dress she had in mind, but I ventured into making it anyway. What do you think happened? You got it, I didn’t have enough lace and there was no place open that I could find any. So there I was crocheting the whole edge of her dress, so she could have her beloved lace. I must say I am really happy with the results. I love how her dress turned out. I believe this is my favorite dress I’ve made and thankfully she loved it too.
Now let me tell you about this sweet baby girl. Julieta is always dreaming. She tells me these wonderful stories of everything we will be doing once we get to return to normal (if that ever happens). She talks about walking through the woods and on the beach. Going for some Ice cream and having her birthday at the park with lots of friends. She tells me people will hug each other way more than before and that no one will ever forget to say I love you to a loved one. These I believe, are the things her little heart desires and I know they will come true eventually. She just needs to find the right home.
Julieta is a 19 inch small newborn size natural fibers baby doll. She fits into newborn or bigger preemie clothes. Her skin is Laib Yala swiss tricot in dark brown color, her limbs and torso are firmly filled with clean wool. Her head is very floppy and needs to be supported at all times, just like a real newborn baby. Her legs are made a little different from previous dolls. They are sewn directly to the torso with both upholstery thread and polyester thread. They are very floppy as well as her arms. Her face is firmly needle felted, soft sculpted, and hand embroidered with cotton embroidery floss. Julieta’s hair is a black curly mohair wig with some changes to suit her better. It can be styled with wet fingers. She’s fully soft sculpted, weighted in the torso, and anatomically correct.
Julieta will go home with all the clothes and accessories you see in her photos.
