Finished! Hansel and Gretel Completed

It took much longer than I intended, but I'm very happy with the results.

I had planned to make a hat for Hansel, but my heart just wasn't in it! I couldn't bear to cover up his hair. It's the first "boy" hair I've done with yarn, and I'm amused by the side swept bangs. He sort of looks like an emo kid, eh?

I have also started work on my next project. I am making a big batch of little brown boy dolls for a drive I found out about for dolls for orphans in Haiti! I found a link to this blog, Dolly Donations while searching for other doll-maker blogs one day, and was so impressed with Sarah and her program. Look at those pictures from her last drive!

I can't wait to mail these to the collection site! I will post pictures of those before I send them off.


  1. Your dolls are so incredible, Rachael. I love this pair!

  2. Thanks, Heather! I love doing these more detailed dolls, because I just take my time with them and work bit by bit as inspiration hits. No pressure or deadlines. :)
