Inviting Play

Mimi Shy Girl in the Forest 12" Inviting Play


Mimi, where do you come from? 

Mimi, don't be shy.

How do you fare in this fall rain?  Would you like to come in?

This timid little one is shyly inviting you to play.

She is a 12" tall Inviting Play doll.

She is firmly stuffed with wool.  She has Laib Yala cotton doll skin and she is made with all natural materials.
Mimi's brown hair is mohair yarn crocheted into a wig and sewn to her head.  It can be styled in different ways and you can comb it with a wide teethed comb.  It is fuzzy and wispy and thin.  She wears sparse little banglets.  It has been some time since I've made a wig like this; it takes me full circle as I revisit this simple and traditional doll making medium. 

Mimi has brown eyes a shade darker than her hair and sunny pale skin.  She comes with:
  • natural colored undies made from organic cotton knit fabric
  • woolen cowl scarf crocheted with brown hues that closes with a handmade wooden button
  • a soft, crocheted pink wool hat
  • a linen and cotton pinafore that can be worn alone or over her sweater
  • a cotton pullover sweater sewn from Italian cotton sweater material
  • taupe cotton stretchy pants with a ruffle at the bottom
  • and simple hand sewn brown leather shoes that give her traction
All of Mimi and each item of Mimi's belongings was hand made by me from my own designs.  There will never be another doll like Mimi; she is one of a kind.

Mimi is a watcher and appreciator.  She quietly and lovingly goes about her business in the forest.  I think it is no accident that she appeared now, in the fall; tending the leaves and seeds. 

Please let me know if you have any questions about Mimi or my dolls. You can contact me:

Mimi would be a sweet and special doll for a doll lover over the age of five.  Children under five shouldn't play unsupervised with Mimi because of small buttons, snaps, and fuzzy hair fibers.

Thank you for supporting handmade dolls, doll artists, and Inviting Play.  It is only with your support, that I am able to bring these wool souls into the world.  Thank you.
