Seamstress Tailor Pincushion Sewing Pin Cushion Art Doll Danita Handmade Kokeshi Style Toy Folk Art


“If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense. Nothing would be what it is, because everything would be what it isn't. And contrary wise, what is, it wouldn't be. And what it wouldn't be, it would. You see?” - Alice

Nonsense is a part of Danita. I'm always creating with that in mind, using my imagination to give personality to inanimate things to make my world a little more beautiful, one thing at a time.

That's why I created these dolls, they will keep me company and hold pins while I am making my original handmade art dolls.

Each of the pincushion girl dolls is hand made by me, Danita. They are vintage thread spools with paper clay and spun cotton heads attached to them. Each one has her face painted with my recognizable melancholic eyes and mysterious smiles.

Perfect to decorate a sewing room, your craft corner, your office desk or give as a gift to your favorite seamstress, seamster or tailor. They are the perfect size to fit just about anywhere and provide a little whimsical touches to your own world.
