It was a good day to dye...

Boy, was it ever a good day to dye!  The intense summer heat in the southeastern USA has kept us inside a lot lately, and we were running out of craft supplies, so I decided to enlist the kids help with dyeing up some yarn for doll hair.  We had a blast... There is something so fun about watching the dye take to the yarn, and it is so satisfying to achieve the beautiful colors you have been imagining... You can expect to see these on some upcoming dolls.

Special thanks to Nancy, Jennifer, and Berrie for cheering me on!!

Doll Upload 6/11

I had a lot of fun working on this batch of dolls... all of them are decked out in their special The Melamoose Co. clothing

This is Pippi Applestocking... she is 8 inches tall.  Pippi Applestocking is a rare gal... she loves a good adventure, a good book, a good cuppa tea.  She is just the right size to tuck into a small bag and take on all kinds of outings, and she is wonderful to have a special little cuddle with.   Pippi Applestocking's hair(made from a special german wool mohair) will do best if left in her braids or pigtails, but that is just fine by her as she knows it adds to her charm.  She will be $95.

This is Petunia, she is also 8 inches tall.  She is a very positive gal, loves to sing and paint and pick flowers... just remind her to ask before she gets them from your neighbor's garden!  Petunia's hair is a hand-dyed pink wool mohair and can be restyled... it is currently in pigtails secured with pink ribbons with polka dots to coordinate with her adorable halter style romper.  Guess what her favorite color is??  She will be $92.

This is Virginia, she is 12 inches tall.  Virginia is a soft, elegant girl who loves to listen to music and tell secrets... she is looking for her forever friend.  Her hair is a mix of dark brunette wool mohair and a hand spun, hand painted yarn in blues, greens, and browns. Virginia is wearing a very special head clip made by and if you contact Perry, she can set up a custom listing for a matching clip or headband for your daughter!  Perry is planning on stocking more small clips in the near  future to fit dolls and for folks who like tiny things.  Virginia will be $175.

Petunia and Virginia will be available in my Etsy shop at 7:30 pm EDT on Sunday, June 12th.

Due to the overwhelming number of requests, Pippi  Applestocking will be available on my Facebook page comment style.  If you are interested in purchasing her, please leave ONE comment there under a pic that I will post at 7:30 pm EDT.  At 8:30 EDT, the names will go into a hat and one will be drawn to purchase her via a reserved listing on Bigcartel which must be purchased and paid for within the hour. ** If you are not on Facebook, please e-mail me at appletreehouse (at) att (dot) net during that time frame stating you would like your name in the hat and it will be added!!

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me!  (The link is on the right side bar.)

Please also take a moment to familiarize yourself with my shop policies under the "Purchasing Information" tab at the top of the blog.
