Upon hearing of the devastation along the East Coast during the past few weeks after Hurricane Sandy's wake, and all of the millions of people affected and displaced from their homes, possibly never to come back we knew we had to make a contribution.
With the Holidays just around the corner we would like to offer up a special gift. We have specially made one of our larger Windfall Dolls just for this giveaway! We usually save our larger dolls for the seasonal giveaways, but we think this little lady would make some hurricane affected families Holiday extra special.
::Melody:: Meaning music or song.
::A bit about Melody::
Melody is one of our more Ethnic looking dolls. She has a bit deeper colored skin, smooth as honey and equally as warm.
She also has a slight almond shape to her chocolatey brown eyes. They have a bit of a sparkle and a wink to them don't you think?
Her lips are small and thin. She loves loves loves to sing! She has the sweetest voice you could ever imagine~just the hint of a crack at the high notes, and she always bobs her head to the music. Music as someone once said is the soundtrack to our lives~Melody will make yours super happy and sweet with her melodies! Of course you will have to imagine her little voice, but if you sing along with her she will chime right in!
:: The details::
Melody is made using our Waldorf Inspired Pattern... out of interlock, stuffing and wool.
Her dress is handmade as are the rest of her clothes, and one of her favorites! It is made using our dress pattern, but with a 2 inch added flounce. A special request by Melody, since it makes it super special when she twirls and spins to the music. Did we mention she likes to twirl, well the girl can twirl!
The dress looks smashing by itself, but then again Melody makes anything look cute! As something warm for the cooler months we made her some booties and a matching tunic vest. They are custom made for her out of a cotton blend, and so soft to the touch! When her hands aren't busy tapping to the music, they are rubbing her cute little belly and twisting her thumbs in the gaps in between the crochet stitches.
She loves her booties because she slides along her hardwood floor so easily while spinning since they are so slippery!
Melody has the most thick, amazing hair! A mix of brown shades with some black highlights that accent her coloring, a true mix of variegated thick thin wool yarn. Also made using our pattern here
It can be worn down, or up, tied with a bow of course. Especially necessary to keep her hair tidy whilst she dances!
Melody is a special girl~like all of the Windfall Dolls, and we hope you like her too!
