My name is Verona and I hand make Multicultural dolls dressed in bright colored African Print outfits in four different shades.
All dolls are individually made - no two are the same. Each doll is made from felt and filled with polyester fiber hollow toy filling. Their outfits are made from bright vibrant African print fabrics in cotton only. I recently started to include making boy dolls because not all the time girls want girl dolls or maybe they would just like a brother for their girl doll, this has proved to be quite successful.
Dolls with no hair are suitable for ages 0-2 years. All others are suitable for age 2 upwards.
I have always sewn but never had the patience to study and take my skills further. I started sewing again because I wanted to make a doll for a very special person at work who inspired me to start sewing again. She loved it so much she ordered one for her mum, others saw the doll placed orders and encouraged me to do markets and stock them in shops.
