Many people have said to me that they have lovely old things from their mothers' or grandmothers' that are just shut away in a drawer or they don't know what to do with. Here is the solution !!! A Keepsake Doll. She is made in silk organza so you can see all your little treasures. The possibilities are many as she could be embroidered , beaded and filled with all your family memories and passed on through the generations. You could even give this as a wedding or christening gift filled with trinkets from the day.
The kit contains full instructions ,fabric, a paper pattern , some lace and buttons to get you started and is presented in a round wooden box. Available for £10 on Etsy
