BETSY ANN - PREVIEW
£45.00 Sold out
Betsy Ann (aptly named after the fabric used for her Liberty skirt) is a Little Sister doll and stands at approximately 14" tall. She has 'natural' skin tone and 'taupe' hair in little bunches. Her hair is made using a super soft and stroke-able plush fabric which is a wonderful sensory resource for babies and small children. She has a pretty face which has been embroidered by hand and wears a pretty removable Liberty skirt which she wears with a coordinating sewn on top with peter pan collar.
She wears a bow in her hair and ivory plush shoes which are also sewn on for safe play. If you'd like to know more about the history of this skirt fabric, please read below.
Packaged in an organza bag to make the perfect gift.
***Betsy Ann will go on sale at the Wild at Heart showcase on Sunday 6th September at 8:30pm over on Love Sparkle's facebook page.***
About the fabric...

About Little Sister Dolls...
NEW Little Sister dolls are approximately 14" tall and are handmade in England from my own pattern. I specifically designed them with children in mind. All of my dolls are made from 100% cotton and their hair and shoes are made from 100% merino wool felt or soft and strokable plush. Their limbs were developed especially for little hands to hold. They are stuffed gently with love and soft hollow fibre filling which makes them soft and huggable; just right for cuddling. But most importantly, they hold the CE mark, the European safety standard which makes them safe for babies and children from birth. Little Sister dolls take around 4 hours for me to make. I only use the best quality fabrics and materials in my work and take great care and attention to detail.
Each doll has a pretty face which I embroider by hand. No two are alike and each one is unique and has their own personality. Their clothing can be removed and interchanged for lots of dress-up fun.
Little Sugar Plums are machine washable at 30 degrees. Hang to dry. Do not tumble dry.
