For Kira - Für Kira

I made this doll for Kira, a 9-year-old girl who wanted to have her first handmade doll so badly - a native american girl.

 

Das ist ein kleines Cree-Mädchen, das ich für Kira genäht habe. Schon lange wünschte sich Kira eine Stoffpuppe - ein Indianermädchen.

 

The doll's shoes have been inspired by a picture of a Cree girl hanging up her felted shoes on a clothes line. I found the photograph (which I cannot show you here as it is protected by copyright) in the amazing and stirring book "Kinder in den Kulturen der Welt (Enfants d'ailleurs)" by Laffon & Laffon (2nd German edition, 2003).

 

 

The dress is made from vintage linen.

Für das Kleid habe ich alten Leinenstoff verwendet.

 

 

Habt einen schönen Tag. Bis bald.

Enjoy your day. See you.
