This is Tracy and her daughter Annie. A few weeks ago Tracy contacted me with the request to make a Polly that would look like her. I didn’t have a photograph, but after many e-mails I knew Tracy loved
black, brown, some animal printed fabrics and loved shopping with her big brown bag . Most importantly though, was that Tracy has wonderfully crazy, brown curly hair. As the ‘making process’ progressed I kept Tracy posted with photographs of ‘work in progress’. I found some gorgeous Rowan Mohair/Angora wool to knit a chunky jumper and some brown wool felt to make the bag. I love the fact that Tracy Polly has a funky look about her and is by far my ‘coolest’ Polly, or so I have been told!
When Tracy Polly was finished, the real Tracy sent some special pictures of her and her family .
She has kindly let me use the one above that shows her as a proud mum with her daughter Annie.
