I've made things my entire life, everything I saw I wanted to make myself.
From shoes to furniture, from clothes to jewellery but there was always a recurrent theme ; dolls.
In nursery school, primary school, I always was busy making little dolls.
I made dolls for practically every member of my family, mostly funny portrait dolls.
When I finished school and start working full time the doll making was over, except when I didn't feel comfortable with myself, then I returned to my old love for dolls.
In 2009, I moved from the country side to a little city and I didn't know what to do with myself ( there was no place for woodworking or taking long walks with my dog) I surfed the internet and came across this website.
My love of dolls ( especially felt dolls) was immediately fired up!
From that day on I worked in my tiny kitchen, designing patterns, trying out hundreds of different shapes until I was pleased with the result.In the meanwhile I constantly checked their website and spend many hours in awe because of their never-seen-before artistically work.
Well here they are : Simona and Elena from PezziUnici, Florence Italy
This post is a bit long but I want to express my gratitude to these two ladies for finding my ultimate pleasure in making my dolls.
Simona and Elena : Thank you !
p.s. what these girls can do with fabric and sculpting clay is amazing
