I'm currently working on a baby doll. Its peculiarity is that it can be a girl or a boy. That is why it's bearing a mixed name.
The pattern I designed to make this baby comes from the pattern of my model Petit-Pois. That's why you can find similarities in the roundness of its limbs and belly, and its general posture.
Its hair is made of soft , really soft Kid Mohair locks in black with lovely red highlights. These clean locks have been hand dyed, and home-wefted by me. I love its very realistic effect.
Camille can move its head from side to side, and back and forth, thanks to a frame solidly integrated in its construction. It can also can bend its knees and elbows thanks to simple wooden joints. This good baby can sit unassisted, and can stay upright with some little help, but... remember it's a small baby, and THAT's already a good start!
Camille will be looking for an adoption family next week. A form will be visible here, under this "news" section, for 24 hours, starting on Thursday. It will be a MMAO - Make Me An Offer- type of sale. A newsletter will notify the subscribers earlier next week, and describe the steps to follow.

This lovely little lady will be happy to snug into your arms.
She has plenty of stories to tell you, imaginary ones, peopled with nice princes and princesses.
She comes with her whole outfit, composed of a handknit lacy dress, in a lovely pale pink colour, an underdress I made from authentic vintage lace fabric from my collection, a pair of handkit lacy boots in a gorgeous yellow colour.
She will also bring her favourite cowl and her lace hair bow.
Irène is 15 inches -a bit more in fact! She's made of natural fibers, and her head and body are totally needle felted. Her skin is DeWitte Engel fabric in fair colour. Her hair is made of a Tibetan lamb skin wig in a gorgeous plum colour. This hair is very easy to do in many different hairdoes. It can be combed with a wide teethed comb, and gently sprayed to keep the lovely little curls.
She has a weighted body. I added dollmaking beads into a secured pouch into her belly. Her arms and legs are rolled for more firmness and durability.
Irène has an armature running from the core of her head deep down into her belly. This allows her to pose her head gently.
Please note this doll is made for collectors; numerous little parts and long fibers could be dangerous to little children.
The Dollectable shop is opening in a few hours. Here's a link, thank you for paying a little visit <3

Milie is now available
This is a short video showing you what a happy dancer Milie is!
She's there! Finally! After a crazy week I couldn't make it on time for Milie to be ready on Thursday, and I need to apologize for this short delay. But she's finally there! Fully dressed and ready to brave the cold weather! The days are really chilly nowadays, and I guessed I couldn't let Milie go in just a skirt and a blouse!
I decided to make her a comfy little fur vest, held at the waist with a long lace. It's also reversible, and the other side is made in a heavy woolen matching fabric that I fell in love with.
I wondered a lot about the shoulder straps of her skirt. I found the solution thanks to the friends on facebook who gave me their opinions, and helped me opt for a pair of very simple and thin straps, in the same fabric as the skirt.
I like the aerial outfit thanks to the tulle that creases under the skirt. The small folds here or there allow the whole to create the movement.
I also added a tartan scarf, and a knitted lace bonnet (pattern by Winterludes).
I like the detail of the small buttons and dots on her boots too.
Milie has flexible legs, thanks to knees made of wooden beads.
She can also bend her head from left to right, and thus adopt endearing poses. Her head, and her body are entirely needle sculpted. I used a Rolling technique to form her limbs.
Milie's hair is made of alpaca fiber, sewn into wefts, which are then crocheted into a wig.
You will find a full Flickr album with the button below
Milie will be available next Tuesday, here, on my site. Her price is set at 595 €. The shipping cost is 40€ international, 25€ Europe, and 15€ national.
If you wish to welcome Milie in your home, you will be able to do so by filling out the form that will be available here on Tuesday, January 17, at 10am EST (16h heure française). This form will remain open for 24 hours.
If you have any questions, please contact me here, or on Facebook, or at firstname.lastname@example.org

Liam, 12-inch Natural Fiber Doll
Here's Liam! What a funny little boy, so lively and happy!
We can guess he got his lovely red hair and numerous freckles from an Irish great great great grandfather.
Liam is 12 inches (around 30cm). His hair is bouclé mohair yarn, crocheted into a cap and tightly sewn on. His skin is cotton jersey from the Netherlands, in a fair pink complexion. His body, head and limbs have been worked with wool through different techniques of rolling and needle felting. He's weighted with dollmaker's glass beads, into his belly. I love his round shapes, with nice belly and bum.
Liam will be wearing his boy's underwear, that is red checkered bloomers and a sleeveless undershirt with cute little boats prints.
He will also have his favourite handknit Irish sweater, along with a pair of woollen baggy trousers.
To comfort him as well, he insisted in taking his plush doggie pet, Walter, and promised he will be very careful, and feed him well.
He will also bring his handknit knee-high socks, just in case the winter becomes really cold, because he hates cold feet.
Liam will also have a cute green aviator-style bonnet that is not pictured here.
Liam and Walter will be for sale during Dollectable on December 1st 2016, 7pm EST on hyenacart.
I'm also finishing two Christmas-themed Titis that will be listed in the shop later today!

I'm currently working on a relatively tiny doll for our next Dollectable rendez-vous. His name is Liam, and he's 12 inches. You can certainly tell this is not that tiny for a doll, especially this type of Waldorf-inspired dolls. I've already worked on even tinier dolls. If I remember well, there has been Lolita or Lola who were only around 7 or 8 inches.
As I told you, Liam is 12 inches. This seems much bigger! But in fact it isn't that bigger! What really differs in the two girls above and Liam resides in their construction. The two girls above have a one-piece part for the body and legs. Liam hasn't. He's constructed like bigger dolls, with distinct patterns for the legs and the body. This allows for more mobility and flexibility. But it is also more complex in the assembling process.
With time, I've learnt how making small-sized dolls can be very tricky. But with time as well, I've learnt how to avoid the tricks. As I love challenges, I'm realising I'm making more and more small and tiny dolls. I love making realistic clothes for them too, which adds to the complexity. You have to design the clothes pattern again and again, to adapt to the extra-small sizes. I'm finding a lot of inspiration in real-sized clothes, so have to design my own patterns, sewing, or knitting.
As tiny dolls need tiny clothes, I designed these cute shoes for Liam. I found inspiration in Sue's super cute Kath Baby Shoes pattern, you can discover it on the site ithinksew.com .
Now, I'm going back to my sewing machine to make and assemble more tiny clothes!
Thank you for reading,
Noah is a Petit Pois boy doll. He's 12 inches (30cm).
My Petit Pois dolls have flexible joints which allow for many funny baby poses. Their head, body and limbs are made hard for durability and consistence. They are weighted with glass beads for a better feel. Their onesie is not removeable, as it is part of the body construction. Noah's made in a very soft-feel jersey fabric, with cute little mice.
I operated a little change into my pattern for this petite model of doll, in order to add more consistency into the hips joints. He can now sit properly on his own, and even stand alone with some little assistance!
Noah's got blond bouclé yarn hair and tanned skin. He's made from soft carded wool that I've worked through different techniques. His head was needle felted, and his limbs rolled.
This cute and plump baby boy owns a full boy's wardrobe, and is ready for a coming chilly winter.
Noah will come with the following clothes you can mix and match: a sailor long-sleeved T-shirt, jeans overalls, papi trousers -as I like calling it!, a handknit high-neck pullover, a jacket, a pair of handknit lace-up boots, a handknit big pompom bonnet, a handknit scarf, his favourite 6'' cuddle doll of course won't be forgotten (I measured her without the pompom), and above all his glasses, because the eye-doctor said he really needs them on! But the little fella heard it and is not at all reluctant! He even loves trying them on his little dollie!
Noah and his accessories are all handmade by me -except for the glasses!, and can be handwashed gently in tepid water with a few drops of wool soap. Dry flat away from the sun or any heating source.
This doll is not suitable for children aged under 6. The presence of long fibers and small parts could become dangerous to very little ones.

Noah's got blond bouclé yarn hair and tanned skin. This cute and plump baby boy has got a full boy's wardrobe already, prepared for chilly winter. But I'm adding a few more items before he'll be looking for a home on Wednesday November 23rd, notably the cutest little cuddle doll ever! More pics to come of the little fella, so keep tuned!
When you make Madeleines a sponge-like batter (actually a genoise) is used. And like most sponge batters it starts with a beaten mixture of eggs and sugar into which is added sifted flour. The difference between a regular sponge and a genoise is that we add warm melted butter (can use browned butter) which makes the Madeleines light and tender with a nice buttery flavor. The melted butter needs to be warm, so it does not solidify once it is added to the batter, causing streaks. What makes these little cakes so unique is that they're baked in special oval shaped molds with ribbed indentations that gives them a pretty shell shape. (However, you can use small tarts pans or mini muffin pans.) It is important to properly butter and flour your pans so that the baked Madeleines release easily after baking. Madeleines are....
I remember the moment when this little butter cake came to life in my hands. I instantly guessed she would bear the name of a famous French patisserie, the Madeleine.
You certainly have noticed I decided to change the spelling in her name. This is just a little hint to her woolly origins, as "laine" is the material this little girl's mainly made of. ("laine" is the french term for wool)
Madelaine is 15 inches tall. She's exclusively made from natural materials, notably clean carded wool which has been worked through different techniques of needle felting, rolling, or stuffing. Her tanned skin is jersey fabric from the Netherlands. Her hair is made of the softest alpaca locks which have been home wefted, and sewn onto a cap. It can be styled into many hairdos, or can be left unattached. This type of fiber shouldn't be combed or brushed if you want to keep the locks intact, tough it can washed gently if needed.
Madelaine's body is fully detailed with ears, knees, elbows, a navel and bottom.
Madelaine will come to you with a soft pink gauze dress with hand-embroidered flowers on the front; a pair of hand-knit shoes and a hand-knit big pompom bonnet, a colourful flower headband, and white linen bloomers.
According to the materials used in the construction of Madelaine and her accessories, these are not intended to little children, but to adults who would like to add to their doll collections.
The doll and her accessories can be gently washed in tepid water, and dried flat. No direct light is recommanded.
Thank you for reading about Madelaine.
