Lily and friends, Colourway 03

Lily and friends, Colourway 03



Lily is a 26cm high, handmade wool felt doll with an extensive fashion forward wardrobe and a big group of friends.

This starter kit is packaged in an ak Lily and friends cylinder and contains everything you’ll need to create your own doll together with a capsule wardrobe of clothes.

skill level: Lily herself is sewn by hand and is a suitable project for new sewers and for children working with an experienced adult – the ‘original’ Lily was 8 when she made her first doll. 
Lily’s felt clothes are all sewn by hand – the fabric garments can be sewn by hand or on a machine depending upon your preference.

So whats in the cylinder:

  • Lily and Friends, our 45 page book with clear, easy to follow instructions, templates and advice
  • All the felt, wool and materials to make Lily or her friend
  • 6 more full 20cm x 30cm sheets of wool felt in coordinated colours plus a selection of quarter sheets of wool felt for trims and accessories
  • Kaffe Fassett printed cotton fabric, pretty white fabric for a peasant blouse, denim for a pleated wrap skirt
  • a selection of Madiera Mouline threads, mini sewing notions and a book of ak sewing needles 
choosing your colourway:
The strip of striped fabric in the kit image is for Lily’s legs. The legs will, of course, be a constant and all the clothes need to work back with the legs. Every kit is set up to create Lily’ favourite felt doggy coat plus boots and hat in a main felt colour like those in our images. The other felts will not all be worn together but will be sufficient to make a good number of coordinated garments and accessories that can be combined with fabrics from your own stash.  You’ll see from our samples that many of gorgeous prints work with equally well with different main colours so take your time selecting a kit.   
personalise your kit:
One of the joys of creating your own unique doll is that you can personalise her in a number of ways.  After you’ve selected your kit colourway, select hair colour and if you wish skin tone.
hair: brunette, red, auburn, black, blonde 
skin: 15, 16, 34, 35, 36, 91
