This "Doli Tomato" reminds me of every good childhood memory, particularly of afternoons with my Yaya, the lady who took care of me and my siblings. I was obsessed with dolls as a child, and as early as 4 years old, I wanted to make my own, so my Yaya took scrap pajamas, and whipped up dolls for me, with googly, embroidered eyes, nose and mouth. I wish I had a picture of those dolls. I remember my favorite one was a white one withtiny green flowers.
Eva Monleon is the lady behind what is easily, my new etsy favorite Misako Mimoko. She works in her Barcelona home studio, taking her time, inspired by the fabrics, their colors, objects-- an animal, a vegetable, always surrounded by good music and good wine! Her "Dolis y Dolos" are so full of character, each one has a soul, you might say.
