The Making of Anika ~ Crochet Brown Doll

Meet Miss Anika.

Meet Miss Anika

Shout out to my Periscope tribe who helped name her. I think her name is perfect for her as it means “Grace and Favor”

Miss Anika is my second version of a “mini” doll. Anika stands approximately 13″ tall from top of head to bottom of her feet but with her head wrap she is about 15″ tall and only 6″ around her waist area.

Anika was created with a Nubian Queen in mind, and for my love of all things gold. I’m still working on my vision of a doll dipped in gold but for now this beauty will definitely slay.

Though she is little, she is fierce

Anika is wearing a beautiful gold metallic skirt and top as well as gold metallic shoes which are all removable. Her shades of black, brown and gold headwrap is perfectly secured around her one puff hairstyle and is not removable. Her gold hoop earrings and gold braid bracelet complete her look.

Anika is a one of a kind beauty that you can’t find anywhere else. She is hand crocheted with 100% cotton yarn in a chocolate brown skin tone, she has 12mm safety eyes and the most gorgeous faux lashes.

Although she is not meant for play she would be the perfect addition to any little girls room or for the doll collector who wants to show off this beauty!

Head Wrap Cuties ~ Brown Doll Collection

Introducing the first doll in the Head Wrap Cutie Collection. I was inspired by Shawn of Constant Covering you can find out more about her here, but the moment I saw her beautiful head wraps I just knew I had to create a doll with a head wrap. I found this scarf at the top of my closet and I just knew it would be the perfect head wrap for the doll and after a little trial and error I finally got it wrapped just right.

The yellow in the scarf/head wrap was jumping out at me so I decided to add a bright yellow cardigan. My intent was just to make this one, however after a trip to my local JoAnn’s I knew there would be a collection of these dolls in my future. Stay tuned as I already have one in a new shade of brown in the works and then of course I will do one in chocolate brown and light caramel as well. What do you think are you a fan of the head wrap? Btw the doll does have a full head of hair underneath so even when the head wrap is removed the doll still has her natural hair inspired hairstyle.
