A keepsake doll created just for you will provide a lasting souvenir of a special occasion or memory either for yourself or for a loved one.
A keepsake doll is a little friend who listens non-judgementally to whatever she’s told, can keep a secret and all the while keeps a special positive memory alive. She does this by being dressed in replica clothing as worn on the occasion in question.
Keepsake dolls are made to order. They take many hours of work and require at least 3 weeks between order and dispatch.

Creation of a doll
This doll is created usually from a photograph provided by the customer. The main aim is to re-create the clothing, hairstyle etc. The doll ‘s face is a standard design.
The basic doll is handmade in calico and measures approximately 40cm tall.
The colour of the doll’s eyes, hair and skin can be chosen from a limited range.
The doll’s clothing is not made to be removed.
Neither the doll nor her clothing should be washed. Should cleaning ever be required this should be specialist dry cleaning.
Each doll takes many hours to create. If the customer has some remnants of the original fabric for the clothing in question this may be suitable to use provided it is not too thick. Many fabrics don’t lend themselves readily to creating garments on a much smaller scale and can be too bulky. If a suitable fabric is not provided by the customer, I will endeavour to find an alternative that’s appears as close to the original as possible.
Reasons for buying a keepsake doll
Examples of keepsake dolls are to remember a wedding, a graduation, a beloved relative, a prom, a special performance of some kind, etc. Some examples of dolls are shown in the images to give an idea as to what to expect.
There is more information about these dolls on my website.
Work on a doll only begins once payment in full has been received and I have clarified any points I am unsure about with you. If you wish to discuss any aspect beforehand or need further information please contact me using the “Ask a Question” button on this page.
There are boxes to be completed before checkout for details of hair, eye colour etc but work won’t begin on a doll until I have contacted you to confirm these and any other details.
PLEASE NOTE: These dolls are collectibles. They are not toys and not designed to be played with by children.
