Fionn – when boys come to stay

Oh we have loved having a wee man about the house!

boys are so different to little girls……I think they may give more cuddles!



We’ve had such an adventure, he shares my love of all insects!, which my husband thinks is odd (it is possibly a little…but I just find all insects amazingly fasinating!)

he found a “sad” moth…aka “dead”, yesterday and lovingly placed it under the rosmary bush so he could “feel better” :/




we’ve climbed mountains, fought battles and sailed  unknown waters, all in our front garden…..its amazing all the things a cardbord box can become with a little imagination!

He has eaten me out of house and home, I now know where the saying ‘hollow legs’ came from!

Tip: new family must have boundless energy!

Fionn is a OOAK 19/20 inch Ma petite vie Cloth doll

Fionn’s tumbled hair is hand wefted and made from mohair locks, crocheted into a mohair cap.
His face is needle sculpted, and hand embroidered with cotton.
His cheeks are blushed with pigmented beeswax.
He is made with pure New Zealand wool, and cotton tricot.
My dolls are firmly stuffed in the imbs with a slightly softer body

Fionn is based on toddler/preschool propotions, he has a neck, belly button on a lovely rounded tummy and a needle felted bottom! (buyer beware this bum will make you want to blow raspberries on it)

Fionns clothing consists of :
Hand knitted dungerees (knitted with Debbie bliss cotton)
Cotton T with wool elbow pads
Fully lined hooded duffle coat
Wool felted boots
Felted wool scarf
Knitted aviator hat
Hand felted conker





Due to Fionn’s hair and small parts he is not recommended for children under 7.

Fionns hair is quite fragile so please be aware before commenting.
