Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day 2015

Hello everyone!

I haven't participated in this little (or shall I say hugemungous!) giveaway day in a few turns, but I thought I'd give it a go this week.

Yay!

So ... what can you win?

I've been polishing up my resume as a dollmaker as of late and would love to share one of my latest creations with a lucky reader. Also, with Sew Mama Sew just finishing their 6 weeks of softies features, I thought it would be awesome to giveaway one of my sweet softies.

This is Miranda:


Some stats about Miranda from Miranda herself:

Hi everyone! My name is Miranda, but you can call me whatever you'd like. I'm so excited to meet you and I am looking forward to meeting all my new friends at my forever home. Is my forever home with you?
I am a 11 inch (30 cm) fabric doll.
I am made out of a cotton sheet that was dyed with all natural coffee to achieve my medium skin tone. I have safety eyes and a sewn smile on my face. I have sweet pink coloured cheeks sewn on as well. My hair is made out of green felt with a bun on the side.

(I am made with a pattern purchased from Elf Pop here on Etsy: A huge thank you to them for providing such a quality pattern.)


Would you like to give Miranda a forever home?

Just fill out the Rafflecopter thingie below and you're entered!

I had a stuffed bunny doll that I still have and my niece loves to play with. If I won this little doll I think she'd go to live with my niece unless one of my nephews become its daddy!

I don't know that I was super particular with my toys, but I still own a little stuffed clown (cute, not creepy) that I got on my first birthday, over 30 years ago!

Christina Menchaca said...

I had something like this as a girl and loved but I want my daughter to have one also!

Sarah said...

My favorite doll was an old doll of my mother's named Mary. She had a plastic molded head with the kindest expression, and was the perfect "baby" size for a little girl. :) sarah@forrussia.org

aus_chick said...

I had a Benji dog toy that my dad had received as a promotional item for a display at the supermarket he ran. Now it belongs to my kids - haircut and all ;-).

Rie said...

My mum knitted me a Womble when I was a child.... 30yrs later, he is still going strong & my baby girl is happily playing with him! Miranda would come to a loving home, if you chose us as Foster Parents... my baby girl Delaney is learning the art of being "gentle" and is slowly but surely getting there!

principeta said...

Harley Richardson said...

I had a doll called Mary - I always said I'd call my child it but never did!

Kathryn said...

I had a Raggety Ann, I guess that tells you I'm on the older side! Love cloth dolls.

Kim said...

I didn't really have any cloth dolls that I can remember. I had some of vinyl baby dolls that my grandmother made lots of clothes for. I am 51 and I still have the dolls and the clothing!! :D

Your Dolls are Beautiful! Would be honored for Miranda to come live with me...and my Grangirlie is learning to sew...maybe we can make her some things too...a lil' quilt for sure! :) Thank you for chance to win (adopt) her!

Pauline Perry said...

I was a child in the early 50's and my mother won a beautiful doll for me at a local fair. The doll was fully dressed with bonnet, coat, dress, underwear that had been hand knitted, and the competition to win the doll was to guess how many stitches were in the dolls clothes. I loved the doll so much - it even had hair and it was blonde!

I don't remember but my daughter had a raggedy ann

PersimonDreams said...

I had a bunny that was as big as I was (probably bigger in the start). When I was about 2 or 3 I would ride the bunny like a horse and the ears kept pulling off. They were sewn on so many times they no longer were the same lenghth! I still have my bunny :)
