I took a communications course in university and I remember the professor asking: when you walk into Urban Outfitters don’t you just get a feeling like they have accessed your inner most early-twenty-year-old desires? I did! I needed that recycled sari quilt and t-shirt that declared my Irishessnes! That’s how I now feel about Alicia Paulson. I want to pin a million pictures of her house, hand them over to a decorator and tell him to copy everything exactly in my home. I want her to sew and knit two of everything that she makes for her little girl so that Kate can have one too. She taps into the Laura Ingalls Wilder in Sweden part of my brain and it makes me very happy. Fan letter over.
I loved her little softie kits as soon as she launched them. I let Kate pick one out months ago and finally started one for her for Christmas a few weeks ago.
This is Miss Dandelion Doe and she is too freaking adorable.
She is just hanging out in nature all rustic-like.
She already has a cuter wardrobe than I do but I’m already eyeing this kit to make her even more tiny pieces.
I followed Alicia’s advice and made a practice dress out of some scraps of my one of my all-time favourite fabrics; Lucien’s My Folklore so as to not ruin the beautiful Liberty fabric that came in the kit. This first attempt took me a few hours but the second go round was much quicker.
She is just too much. I hope Kate loves her as much as I do.
