::Windfall Doll Giveaway:: Meet Holly

Welcome to the FIRST Windfall Doll giveaway!


We are so excited to introduce Holly.


Holly is the girl that started Windfall Dolls.  

As we slowly brought her to life, stitching and crocheting.... she spoke to us.  And every night when I kissed her cheek and put her into the closet with the rest of the dolls that we have made, she would whisper into my ear.

How much she loves kisses.  
How much she loves to be held and snuggled.
How much she dreams of sleeping in a bed instead of a closet.  

She reminded us that there are some children who don't have a doll to kiss or snuggle and asked that we help in changing that.  She asked if we could help her find a happy home with sweet children who wished for a handmade doll to care for and love.  

And, so we are granting Holly's wish.  

We are giving her a new home..... full of all of those hugs and kisses and love.

A bit about Holly.

Holly is entirely handmade by us using Adirondack Patterns. She stands 17 inches tall and is made of interlock, stuffing and wool. 


Her hair is Fisherman's wool mixed with handspun highlights.


Holly prefers her hair in two small braids, but we did leave her hair long and flowing in case that she changes her mind.  It can easily be cut to one length.


She has embroidered green tear drop eyes and pretty petal pink lips.


She is dressed in a simple floral dress embellished with vintage upcycled lace. 


Her boots are quite rustic in design and are made from a felted upcycled cashmere wool sweater with wool ties.


To keep warm in the chilly weather, we have crocheted her a beautiful wool vest.



Holly is very excited to meet a new friend. 

If you are interested in having Holly join your family, please become a follower of this blog and leave a comment at the end of this post. The giveaway will be open for one week.  We will randomly choose a winner on December 5th and we will contact the winner via email.

Each comment counts as one entry

For an extra chance to win:

~Write about Windfall Dolls on your Blog (feel free to use a picture of Holly) and leave another comment  letting us know that you did so.

******
It saddens us to mention this, but we just want to be clear.  Please do not comment if you are planning on selling this doll.  She is meant to go to a family who will appreciate her.  It would break our hearts if she was given to someone with poor intentions.

  34. I just found your site via Craft Hope and love your dolls. No need to include me in the give away because I sew and can purchase your tutorial. I just wanted to say how wonderful your post was that explained to the "BIG DOGS!" why your pattern was for sale. Every Mamma should indeed be able to afford to purchase a pattern to make her baby a baby. You are awesome to share this way. Thank you.
