Episode 15 of the CLN podcast is here and today we are chatting with Hannah of Stoffoli Dolls. Have you ever wondered what life would be like if you made dolls? After meeting Hannah at Edinburgh Yarn Festival, I just had to find out more and the result is today’s podcast episode. So come on and settle in for a wonderful look into the world of handmade dolls.
It’s time for you to put the kettle on, grab your knitting and make yourself comfortable. Today’s show is a fun filled 60 minutes, so sit back listen and enjoy this wonderful interview.
Hannah introduces us to the world of handmade dolls and how she lovingly crafts each one. She chats about the materials, safety testing and every tiny detail it takes to make one of these unique dolls. Hannah also chats about the ups and downs of life in the creative business and we take a look inside one of her dollmaker workshops. We also touch on working from home as a stay at home parent along and the trails that go along with that.
As if that wasn’t enough to entice you to listen you can also be in with a chance to win a beautiful, luxury kit. The kit contains everything you need (except pencil, paper and scissors) to make you own 12cm / 4 inch pocket doll. The body of the doll is sewn and stuffed with wool stuffing and the clothes are knitted. The kit contains instructions, skin fabric, tubular bandage, wool stuffing, yarn for hair and clothes, threads for sewing and for features, a sewing needle, five 2mm double-pointed knitting needles and 5 silver-plated stitch-markers. Stylishly presented in a drawstring project bag, this kit is a perfect gift for a crafty friend or to make as a treasure for yourself or a loved one.
