Welcome to the home page of Polly Pincushion.
The story behind my ‘Pollies’.
It all started in May 2012, having spent the previous year experimenting and creating, throwing away frustrating, not quite right wire framed bodies, along came my first successful ‘Polly’. The name Polly Pincushion came about because my first few dolls were pincushion holders, the name then stuck and my dolls became fondly known as Pollies. My Pollies usually sit or stand at around 18-35cm high and are created by using wire and paper- mache. When they are ready to be dressed, I use my favourite wools, usually Tweed and a selection of different materials to create a combination of ‘wool-wrapped’ and fabric outfits and accessories. Pollies can be made to look like someone or made in colours to your specification.
All my ‘Pollies’ are one-off creations and are not suitable for children.
