I made Emmeline for christmas for a dear friend:



And Im attaching a card saying:

Dear [friend], meet Emmeline.
Her birthday is the 28th of june and every year she gets her mother to make her new hairbows and a big cake in the shape of a penguin (because penguins are the coolest of all animals claims the Cool Girls at School). And every year no one ever shows up and she is given no presents. So Emmeline has to eat her penguin-cake all by her self. But if you points this out to her shell tell you that at least she has her pretty, pink hairbow.

Since the two of you share birthday I give her to you, I know youll give her lots of love.
Love Syrlig
(sorry if the tenses are a bit off, Im translating)

And a pic of the back while she was still a WIP without arms:



Oh and for scale, her head is a little bigger than my fist.

I saw someone creating dolls and attaching a sad history to them a while ago and I loved the idea. I cant remember who or where but all credit goes to them for the little story!

Im quite proud of her. What do you think?

I collect the pieces of insight I find on the street and sew them into a quilt of understanding.

People who take time to be alone usually have depth, originality, and quiet reserve.
