Decorative heirloom dolls lovingly handmade in the U.K. by Katy Livings

I'm Katy, a designer and maker and mum to two young children William and Lucy. After spending my childhood avidly making and sewing I went on to study Textile Design at Nottingham Trent University, specialising in embroidery. I was fortunate to be sponsored through my final year by Madeira Threads and Aquafilm. My final degree show was awarded a Design Excellence Award at the New Designers Exhibition in London which enabled me to start working as a freelance designer working for companies both in the U.K. and Paris. I've designed homeware and fashion ranges for companies such as Crown Wallcoverings, Habitat, Nitya and Mattel toys. I was delighted to win a commission by Tony and Cherie Blair in conjunction with the Foreign Office to Design and make gifts for the World Leaders attending the G8 Summit in 1998. My embroidered scarves were presented to the wives of the heads of state and I was invited to attend a presentation at number10 Downing Street. After spending the next few years working as a buyer and designer for a large high street retailer I developed arthritis in my hands and gave up my creative career.
10 years and 2 children later, I'm recovering and making again!
I'm loving putting all my care and attention into creating heirloom gifts, traditional decorative dolls and rabbits using beautiful Liberty of London fabrics with the softest wool and cashmere. I try to incorporate as many details as possible working with leather, yarn, vintage trims, pretty laces and vintage mother of pearl buttons. I make my own patterns and love to work with customers to create custom orders and personalised elements to their dolls.
Due to safety regulations my dolls are intended as decorative items only and are not suitable for children or babies.

    My heirloom bunny doll is absolutely adorable! I can tell she has been created with so much love as her detailing is incredible and her hand knitted and stitched outfit is so delicate and pretty! Katy is such a talented lady and responds to any inquieries! My order arrived well packaged and swaddled in tissue paper! I would highly recommend Katy for her beautiful work and first class customer service!
