See Sue make dolls out of muslin and vintage cotton.
See how the body and dresses are machine sewn for sturdiness, but how details like button eyes, yarn hair, and accessories are sewn on by hand.
See how Sue dyes some of the fabrics with coffee or tea for an antique effect inspired by illustrations from children’s books from the ’30s and ’40s.
See Sue make up each design as she goes along, so the dolls are one-of-a-kind, quirky, and all the more lovable.
Stitch, Sue, stitch!
