Kitten dreaming

I have been scribbling down some ideas for a new group of stuffed animal dolls. I really love making dolls – I love conceiving of their personalities and quirks at the sketching stage and then watching them come to life as I sew them together – usually with a lot more quirks than originally imagined. It’s time consuming, frustrating and fiddly but totally satisfying. Below you can see the whimsical Clementine, a cat whose favourite passtime is birdwatching. I am hoping that she will be one of maybe five different cats all who have different hobbies and personalities.

    Clementine the cat is a very very cute drawing, when Clementine becomes a fully fledges doll, I hope she won’t chase birds just watch them and be a cool cat.

    That’s it, Claire!Make those dolls! Make a series of them…and then you’ve got yourself a mass-market bonanza. Collectibles. They’ll be adorable and simultaneously make you millions. Go for it!

    I think this is a very cute idea. I love that her hobby is birdwatching. How about a rabbit that enjoys gardening! I know this idea will be successful for you, you are very talented.

    I love the little cat Claire. It reminds me of a children’s book called ‘The Wonderful Pigs of Jillian Jiggs’, about a little girl who makes all kinds of pigs & then just can’t bear to part with them because of their individual personalities.

    I’m new to your site and I love it! I think one of the cat dolls should definitely be a fisherman, or are they all going to be female? I want to make dolls too.

    The Sketch of Clementine is wonderful. I’d frame it and hang it on my wall! Your creativity continues to inspire me. Good luck and all the best to you. 🙂
