Meet Leia, your new room mate! Help me, You’re my only Hope for a home! (hehehe)
She’s made from 100% natural unbleached calico, hair made from dyed 100% merino wool, clothes from cotton with hand drawn facial features and tattoos.
She’s the largest doll I do (currently) at 22 cm tall, and I can assure you the force is strong with her
She is a rebel of simple requests and asked me to show you her list of needs:
“Here’s list of things to do to best look after me:
Please don’t put me in a washing machine, if I get dirty gently wipe with a cloth or sponge (and I mean lightly, I have sensitive skin!) to see if dirt will come off, please do not attempt to clean tattooed areas as this may damage the drawing (as much as my ‘tattoos’ have been sealed with lacquer I wouldn’t want you to risk it!). This won’t work with my hair, so gently try to get out dirt with a damp cotton bud trying to stay with the direction of the hair.
I try very hard to stay still when being posted but if my hair is a bit untidy just use a bit of hairspray on your finger and smooth down any stragglers. A lady needs to look her finest after all.
Kids are cute but I don’t like playing with them (my short legs mean I can’t run that fast) so try to keep me away from those under 3, not due to loose parts but to keep me safe from drool (and being eaten).
Try not to keep me in my box too long at a time, the dark space makes me sad and lonely. Maybe place me around different places in your home, I like a change of scenery every so often.
Other than that I’m an easy roommate, thanks for letting me stay!”
