Linnea, A Girl with the Biggest Heart


$197.00

I have learned that Linnea has a great big heart & soul inside a little girl's body.  It's been great fun to watch her come to life.  Her dress hints to my love of vintage clothing from the late 1940's.  :-)

Linnea's leg has a little scar and at first, it made me very sad.  I have found that dolls, just like my children, act as a mirror where I see myself & the world, magnified, both the good & the not so good, with new perspective. :-)  So, as I worked on her, I reflected on my imperfections & did a little soul searching.  As a doll maker, I am dedicated to creating a life long friend for someone to love and make great memories with.  At the same time, I work hard to make each stitch as perfect as possible.  While perfection is a worthy goal, it is not a realistic one.  Each of my dolls have their own personality, quirks & yes, imperfections.  As they are made with my own two, imperfect hands, yet they are well constructed and ready for playtime. :-)

Linnea hopes her scar does not make others think less of her.  I told her not to worry, I have lots of scars & my true friends never even think to judge me based them, nor I them.  What matters is the heart, our actions, love & loyalty towards others.  So, sweet Linnea has nothing to worry about...just wait for her best friend to come along.  :-)

She loves girly frills, but at the same time can't wait to get into her comfy jammies & snuggle with her blankie.  Linnea looks for the best in everything & everyone.


Linnea is 15"/38cm girl, but she measures much larger if you include her heart.

Her hair is pure, natural, undyed Merino wool that I handspun from one of my favorite fleeces.  I've purchased the entire fleece from a little naughty ewe named, Diva, several years in a row, as I especially love her soft, dark chocolate wool.



Linnea wears a dress made from 100% cotton fabric, with a wool belt, trimmed with wool felt coordinating flowers.  As I mentioned before, it is inspired by late 1940's fashion. She loves her raspberry pink wool beret and grey wool capelet, made with upcyled fulled fabric.   She wears cotton undies and her socks are trimed with cotton crocheted lace.  Linnea wears black mary jane shoes that I knit with wool.  She also comes home with purple, cotton knit pajamas and a blankie I knit with my hand spun wool.

Linnea is best for children over 3, as there are some small pieces. She is sturdy, but not recommended for naughty children. :-)Linnea's scar

She’s ready for her mama & lots of playtime.

As with all my dolls, she should be hand washed only. Surface cleaned as necessary. Wool has antibacterial qualities and is very hygienic. For emergency cleanings, such as after illness or other mishaps, gentle bathing is fine. Instructions are included with the doll.

I create all my dolls with much love and attention to detail, especially for you!
