Box Dolls

On the eve of Ruby and Nina's birthdays I realised that I had not made them anything. I usually try to give them at least one handmade thing and though it would not have been the end of the world if I hadn't been able to, I had on hand all the things I needed to make these little boxes of fun. I clothed the little wooden dolls in scraps of old jumpers, drew faces on with pencil and texta and painted the toadstool. They are very rough and ready but I was aiming for a folky autumnal look. The boxes are only about 2" x 2" and perfect to pop in your pocket when you've got a boring wait at the doctors or during your sister's tap lesson.

  1. I love these, such a neat idea. Our Vita Rose would be all over this.
