Her body and clothes are made from 100% carefully sourced upcycled textiles, so, what did she used to be?
Her arms and head were an 100% undyed cotton sheet.
Her stripy body and legs used to be a children’s duvet cover
Her dress is made from a patterned cotton fabric, that was originally from a kit for making book covers, found in an Oxfam shop.

I was inspired to make this doll by the "This girl can" campaign. I love using recycled textiles to make objects that are fun and have a positive message. I'm a charity shop and flea market womble. I love tracking down gorgeous fabrics, giving them a new life and some va va voom, as curios, creatures and collectables. I love upcycling unwanted and found items into unique, one offs.
