Welcome to Sewfunky! Beautiful ring slings, sun bonnets and dresses handmade in Canada!
Every doll is carefully stitched by hand, which takes 20+ hours for each one. The doll’s head is filled with clean, carded local sheep’s wool, is carefully stitched to hold its form, and has a 100% cotton “skin” is stitched over it. The eyes and mouth are carefully hand embroidered with cotton floss, and a cap is crocheted and stitched tightly to cover the doll’s head.
On the head, each and every strand of hair is individually hook-and-looped. Your doll can have any hair style at all! I use wool, silk, soy or mohair yarns for their lovely natural texture and beauty. Many of the wools I use are hand-dyed and hand-spun by local artists. Everything used to make these dolls is of the highest quality and is made with natural fibres. The doll’s body is filled with clean, carded sheep’s wool and a little touch of lavender. It is carefully and securely stitched twice so it can last through lots of love!
Each doll comes with a unique set of handmade clothing, made with natural fibers. The hand-sewn outfit is removable for changing.
Currently available skin tones are: Fair, Golden, Peach, Mocha and Terracotta
So many choices when it comes to yarn for doll hair! You can let me know what you have in mind or choose from something you see on my website. Mohair curls, beautiful silk, hand spun wool, the choices are endless! The great thing about their hair is each strand is individually placed you can style it any way you like… pigtails, pony tail, updo, braids, buns, down…
Almost every colour and shade available! I use 100% cotton embroidery thread and hand-embroider their faces.
I use 100% clean carded sheep's wool milled locally to fill my dolls. Wool is antibacterial, retains warmth and smell. It is the perfect eco-filling for a child’s toy. I also tuck a pinch of organic lavender inside the chest of the doll.

I require a 50% deposit to confirm/reserve your order.
Once your order is ready to ship, you will be invoiced for the balance owed. Payment must be received in full before your doll(s) can be shipped.
If your doll cannot be made, a full refund will be issued immediately. Refunds are not issued for partially-paid dolls, as the deposit $ collected is used to cover material costs.
Dolls can be picked-up, or shipped to any address worldwide!
Please note: I can not replicate a previously-created doll. They are truly one-of-a-kind! I can aim for the same look, similar hair and clothing but often its hard to find that exact same skein of yarn or piece of fabric that was used years ago.
Please allow for six weeks for your doll to be made, plus estimated shipping time. In some rare cases I can make an exception, but generally I require this much time to complete a doll. As a mother of four and a small business owner life is always busy!
I am currently booked for custom spots until January 2017
