Amora wears her burgundy-colored hair up in two heart-shaped buns to proclaim her love for life. Babbling about sweet floral frocks and adventures under the sun puts a perpetual smile on her face. She bakes snickerdoodles and moist birthday cake with yummy frosting for all her chummies who pay her a visit. She especially treasures the company of joyful friends.

Ever since we noticed how Serene loves Cosette the fox when we introduced the lovey to her about a month ago, we have been tempted to buy more stuffies for her. Then I decided I'd try to make one for her during my staycation a couple of weeks ago. An attempt to save money and make more use of the sewing machine - cheers! Inspired by this doll, Serene's new lovey, who is henceforth named Amora, is made with tons of love. I used felt, vintage reproduction fabric, embroidery floss, and polyfil too. She wears a little apron that I sewed out of a bit of vintage tablecloth. Now that I've a sweet stuffed doll for my sweet babe, I want to make more. They're such good use of the fabric scraps, felt, and polyfil that are sitting around in my stash (a product of when I had an Etsy selling stuff like this, this, and this back in the day). I love being able to make things for Serene in hopes that they'll be more meaningful to her than store-bought toys. Plus, I can make little mistakes here and there while crafting, and she won't mind! Because right now, playing is synonymous with chewing. ;)

  1. Helen!!! Amora is darling! I want to pay a visit to you and have you do a day tutorial with me. :) I'm so glad you find time to home-make things, it's such a beautiful way to express your love. And Serene is too cute for words. But, so are you , so no surprise there. :) Love,

  3. What an adorable handmade doll you made! I wish I could make something apart from the skirts. Something like this would be a great keepsake for when she is an adult. I am sure she will certainly appreciate.

    That skirt was quite simple, it wouldn't take a pro like you long to make it at all.

  5. God, your baby is heart-breakingly adorable. Seriously, I want to coo just looking at her. And I'm blown away by the fox! It turned out absolutely fantastic- it seriously looks store bought!
