Catholic Saint Dolls!

Pin It
I'm back!
and I'm introducing my new project and newest listing in my Etsy shop:
 
Catholic Saint Felt Dolls
 
 
Long story short: I wanted a saint doll for a friend's daughter,
so I started with one and then someone asked me to make another.
Then someone else asked me to make another.
So here's what I have so far!
 
 
 
 
Saint Kateri Tekakwitha
 
complete with shawl, headband, and mocassins (obviously)
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Her hair is made of braided yarn,
I cut some fringe in her shawl and hand sewed the design around the neck.
 
 
Then we have...
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Blessed Teresa of Calcutta
aka "Mama T"
 
Looking stylish as always in her Missionaries of Charity sari and veil
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Each doll comes with a laminated prayer card with some fun facts like feast days and such and a prayer or quote on the back.
 
 
 
 
 
 
Next we have
 
Saint Therese of Lisieux
aka "the Little Flower"
 
obvisouly I had to make her a little cross the roses.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
and there you have it!
 
Please let me know what you think.
There's not a lot out there when it comes to saint toys
and to be perfectly honest a lot of it is... well.... creepy.
 
Anywho, let me know if I can make one for you!
