All the way from Kyrgyzstan

I am still going to make a doll for Amelia J – yes I really am – but today I went to check out a store in Prahran called AK Gallery as suggested by AC in my comments section. What an incredibly beautiful shop it is absolutely loaded with felt dolls, felt christmas decorations, quilts, mobiles… I was in felt / crafty heaven. The felt dolls come from very exotic sounding kyrgyzstan and are quite amazing, perhaps not everyone’s cup of tea but so lovingly made and so unique that I got all carried away and splashed out and bought a doll dressed to the nines in a hand knitted wintery outfit.

I am still going to make that cat doll but now the pressure is off to make it that very special first christmas doll.

    The doll is just gorgeous. It reminds me of Beth’s dolls as portrayed in Gillian Armstrong’s ‘Little Women.’ Very lovely 🙂

  4. Reminds me of these wooden dolls I used to get from… I forget the name of it… somewhere in Reading. They were very cute and their clothes look similar to the doll you have a picture of.

    That’s a really special doll for Amelia J. – not every infant has something all the way from Kyrgyzstan!

  6. I love those dolls! They have a couple in a yarn store here in Perth and they are stunning. Surely something that Amelia will keep forever!

  7. As I’ve said before, I want one.

  8. That’s the cute’est doll ever! I think I’m going to visit the shop too! Erm, maybe not in the near future – I’ve already spent too much on Christmas presents. 🙂
