I wanted to design a doll that could be both beautiful and child-friendly.
A doll that appealed to adults, as well as children.
A doll that could be easily dressed and undressed, with clothing that was fun, but also beautiful.
I wanted the doll to be simple with just the right amount of detail.
I wanted the doll to be handmade, but sturdy.
I wanted the doll to be soft to the touch, comforting and huggable.
Introducing Phoebe and Egg, a collection of dolls and doll clothing.
Phoebe is the big sister, Egg is the baby and Ging is their brother.
Each doll is hand made from 100% wool felt from Holland. I chose this material for it's many qualities--softness, durability, stability and the beauty of its surface. Although the surface has a subtle fuzz to it, it does not pill like wool felt blends.
Their faces and hair are individually designed and hand sewn. Hairstyles are created with various wool yarns. Phoebe is 23 inches tall. Baby Egg is 16 inches tall.
Each doll comes with two sets of clothing and a pattern set designed to teach children and adults how to make doll clothes.
When you purchase a Phoebe doll, a doll is also given to a child in need. Dolls have been given to children in foster care and children in Family Promise.
