my favourite handmade softies and dolls

A Very Handmade Christmas

I have been coming and going to this post for about four days now, I keep spotting new and yummy handmade softies every day and have to redo the graphics – so with blinkers on I am finally publishing and will continue to add to the collection to my softies and handmade dolls pinterest board.

I’m really looking forward to Christmas this year, year on year it means more to Molly and I’m so excited for her. I like to make each Christmas more handmade so Molly appreciates it more (and the house doesn’t end up a magnet for more and more plastic that’s getting more and more expensive to dispose of).

One of my favourite boards on Pinterest is my Handmade Softies and Dolls board, a growing collection of what catches my eye from the world of handmade cuddles.

Here are my best picks - why not give the gift of handmade this Christmas….
