An Artist Creates Dolls Resembling People Who Have Passed Away or Are Somewhere Far Away

Dolls of loved ones

When a little boy lost his beloved grandfather, he was plunged into great sadness. He could not understand how it happened that his Pop suddenly disappeared from this world. He really wanted to own a likeness of his grandfather. This dream came true thanks to the artist Jennie Leigh Holland, who makes personalized dolls on crochet.

Grandfather From Yarn

For a boy, she knitted a doll that looked like his grandfather. The toddler himself chose a picture on which she should model herself and asked that the man necessarily hold a fish in his hand. Thanks to this mascot, the grandfather is always close by his grandson.

Better Than Photo

Jennie Leigh Holland makes mascots not only of people who have already passed away. She creates dolls of living people as well. Eventually everyone can put a crocheted version of themselves on the shelf 😉 It’s definitely a better option than a photo. You can cuddle up to the mascot at any time and feel the closeness of a person who works somewhere far away or has already passed from the world of the living.
