Sweet Lorelei is ready to head back to school with her new dress and backpack. Sadly, she will likely not be able to during these days of a pandemic. But, she is still excited to show them off anyway to her new family. The Details: Hitty Lorelei was hand carved from Basswood by Nong and painted by me, Holly. She stands just a hair under 6.25 tall and is peg jointed at the shoulders and hips like the original Hitty.
I have been teaching Nong's wife Miow to hand stitch doll dresses thus her dress was a combined effort. I hand stitched her backpack from vintage canvas.If you have any questions, feel free to contact me. The Back Story: Last year Ae was approached by a wonderful young carver, Nong, who asked to apprentice under him as he wanted to learn how to carve dolls. And since that time it has been great fun for Ae and I to work with Nong as he explores the small doll carving world. Ae and I are so excited for Nong. He is such a wonderful young man and his dream has always been to become a full time carver like Ae but he's never felt confident in his carving skills.
With every Hitty and small doll or animal he carves, there is great improvement. He pays so much attention to the tiniest of details. We both think he will be a star in the carving world. Our dolls come from a smoke free but dog loving home.
