I discovered Helene from The Humble Seamstress on Etsy. I really love her style. There's something so whimsical and charming about the simple beauty of her creations. They remind me of a different time when life was simpler.
Her shop features all sorts of darling hand made items including doll clothing and unique scrappy angel dolls and this little bear here.
|Helene used to be a nurse and now she makes many nurse dolls!|
A crafter from Pennsylvania she says, "I am an avid sewer & retired from my job as an R.N. to persue my creative path. I am primarily a collectible doll maker but make many other sewn items & will have some really cute, different dolls & other items listed."
Her dolls truly have a unique personality. You can find her shop, the Humble Seamstress, on Etsy at http://www.etsy.com/shop/TheHumbleSeamstress?ref=seller_info. Check out all her interesting and lovely dolls, especially her doll clothes. It's worth a trip!
P.S If you read yesterday's post here about using gesso for your dolls, you'll love Helene's idea for another creative gesso use. She used it to paint over her 1970's paneling (yes, we remember it!) so that she wouldn't have to take it all down. Cool!
