Sahara Handmade art doll
Sahara is a one of a kind (OOAK) Handmade art doll designed and made by me, a member of Professional Doll Makers Art Guild, from head to toe. Sahara is a heirloom collectible doll. Please note she is not a play doll and is not intended for kids.
Sahara is around 14″ tall( or around 10″ seated) and was created in a smoke-free pet-friendly home. As said above, this Handmade art doll is made from high quality cotton fabric and covered with cotton knit(made in America specifically for dolls) which makes her feel very pleasant to the touch.
Her head is sewn, needle sculpted, needle felted and then covered with knit fabric. It is posable and you can turn it left or right, up or down and even in slight angle for cute pictures.
She is stuffed firmly with fiber fill and cedar wood shaves. She also has some glass beads inside which gives her some weight and makes her feel more real in your arms.
Her fingers have wire inside which shapes them nicely.
Her elbows and knees have wooden ball joints. I especially love knee ball joints as they let her sit on the table or shelf looking cute and lively! Note ,Sahara is meant to be seated and can’t stand on her own. Her limbs don’t hold the pose(meant to be floppy) but they bend well.
Sahara’s body and face are blushed with artist grade soft pastels and pencil pastels. They are then fixed with the same artist grade fixative and archival UV acrylic spray varnish.
Her eyes are painted with quality acrylic paint and then covered with archival varnish.
Her hair is made of Wensleydale sheep locks. I glued them lock by lock to the handmade wig base(20 hours just right there!). She has a lot of hair and it is just beautiful!
The outfit( two!) is mostly sewn by hand, the sweater is hand knitted just for her. It looks neat not only on outside but on the inside as well. The clothes are removable.
Sahara’s sandals and boots are handmade from genuine leather. They are tiny and cute and are handsewn.
Sahara is an art doll and is not washable so please handle her gently.
The doll will come in a personalized box with certificate of authenticity and my signature.
Sahara will be shipped for FREE within continental USA via FedEx mail ,insured, within 3 days.
