There's a new handmade doll in my shop this week, with purple yarn hair and a lovely raspberry pink dress. Meet Samantha Howard, a graphic artist with a talent for hand lettering. Samantha is also a big fan of the Hallmark Movie Channel where she gets her romantic fix each evening while working on art projects. She loves the holiday specials they show throughout the month of December.
Samantha is made from a mix of new cotton and muslin fabrics with ribbon details. She is 23" long, 13" sitting height (59 cm, 33 cm). She is stuffed with hypoallergenic Polyfil. Because she has double internal seams she is flexible and able to pose several ways, from demure to spunky.
Samantha's raspberry pink patterned cotton dress has a navy patterned fabric belt with a purple grosgrain bow. Her shoes match her dress and have purple grosgrain ties. Samantha's knickers are made from purple leopard print cotton (whoa!). Her dress, shoes and knickers are sewn securely to her body. She comes with a removable dark purple felt coat and matching felt bucket hat decorated with a band of raspberry pink fabric and a purple grosgrain bow.
Samantha loves this magenta pink felt coat and hat set from PinkGingerKitty. Adorned with hand embroidered felt dots, it makes a whimsical wrapper for winter shopping.
Samantha started a Nancy Drew book club with her friend Genevieve. They are reading their way through the entire series, just like they did in childhood. The dolls are wearing coordinating coat and hat sets from PinkGingerKitty.
