Don’t try to rush things that need time to grow.
Hope you all had a great Mother’s Day weekend with your loved ones. In Mexico, Mother’s Day was yesterday, not Sunday, so I kind of got to celebrate twice. I spoke with my mom and sister on Sunday. Then yesterday my little ones gave me handmade pincushions they made by themselves, my little girl memorized a beautiful poem with a little special box for me, and my husband also skipped work so we could spend more time together. So I had two great Mother’s days. I felt appreciated and got to relax with the people I love the most.
Now let me introduce you to my new little one, Camila. This little sleeping beauty is made a little different, just a little. Her head is smaller compared to the proportions of my other baby dolls. This was made on purpose, trying to give her a more realistic feel. Her eyes are closer together, for the same reason. Because of a smaller head I was forced to make a shorter neck too. I thought this was going to compromise movement, but it didn’t really. She can still tilt and turn her head up to a certain degree like my other dolls. One big difference is the way I attached her legs. I usually attach them low but to sides of the torso in a way that the legs where always spread open in a frog position like real babies usually have them. However, I have always been bothered as how the legs will fall back when you hold the doll in the air flat on her back. It was not very realistic. So this time I tried it differently. The legs are attached a little lower and with the knees facing front. So when you hold the baby in the air with the back flat, the legs will fall back in a more natural position. I hope you like these new changes, though I can’t promise they will all stay or if I won’t add some more later.
About Camila, you should know that she loves babies. She goes around pointing out all babies she sees and calling them babies even though some of them are older than her. haha! I think she feels older than she really is. She’s a very gentle girl, especially when she plays with her baby doll. She loves to cuddle and her favorite song is “You are my sunshine”. Camila is not fond of vegetables but loves fruits instead. She certainly has a sweet tooth. Baby Camila loves to hear stories but doesn’t care too much about the pictures. She likes to close her eyes when you read to her. She says she can see everything in her mind. She sleeps a lot and dreams even more.
Camila is an 11 inches natural fibers art baby doll. She’s fully soft sculpted and anatomically correct. Her skin is Laib Yala in light brown, her limbs are fully lined and firmly filled with clean wool and glass beads. Her torso is needle felted in two parts and weighted with glass beads. Her head is floppy but has some stability. You can prop her more easily to keep her head up. Her arms and legs have been hand sewn to her torso three times to make it extra strong. They are very floppy as well and bend at the elbow, thighs, ankles, and knees. Her head is firmly needle felted and soft sculpted in the mouth and nose. Sylvia’s hair is a hand crocheted brushable mohair cap in an orange color, it has been hand sewn to her head. This hair can be gently brushed. Her blushing has been made with chalk pastels and beeswax crayons.
Camila is not a toy. She’s an art doll intended for gentle play by an adult collector or an older child 10 and up. She loves to be cuddled and held but just like you would be gentle with a real baby, you need to be gentle with her. She’s easy and fun to pose and feels great to hold too.

Shipping to the US is 60 USDollars. Other parts of the world will need a revised shipping quote. Customs fees and taxes are the responsibility of the buyer.
A short, 2 month payment plan is available to purchase her. However at least 1/3 of the doll’s price needs to be paid upfront, from which 50 Dollars will be taken as a non refundable deposit. Please ask for the payment plan rules if you don’t know them yet.

If you wish to see more photos of Camila you can see more photos of her here.
And here is also a little video of me changing her clothes putting on her dress. Her jammies were drying that’s why they are not in the video.
I will take entries for Camila until Friday May 13, 2022, at 3pm CDT. If more than one person is interested I will draw a name. Once a family has been chosen I will send a PayPal invoice that is due upon receipt.
As always by commenting you agree you are 18 years or older and please do not comment for someone else, that is just not fair for others.
