My very dear friends in Australia, Anna and her family have set up their own Catholic business on esty in the past few months called Stitchin' Traditions to sell some of their beautiful handicraft, much that is religious. I have been the very fortunate recipient of some of their lovely work as gifts over the past few years.
My children have found much enjoyment in Anna's Rosary Flowers and matching pouch, all in 100% wool felt.
They have also loved Anna's fantastic Priestly Pencils!
Most of all, they have loved Anna's Mother Teresa's play set, complete with Mother Teresa holding poor mother's baby, the Bishop and the Poor Indian Mother.
Then when Anna opened her etsy store I was very keen to buy a couple of her handsomely designed saint dolls. The dolls are all hand-sewn and each measure approx. 10 1/2cm (6 inches) and are made out of 100% wool felt, fleece, cotton fabrics, 100% wool yarn and other various objects e.g. beads, buttons, etc…the quality, the doll's details and the workmanship is second to none! Here are photos of some of her creations:
St Mary MacKillop ~ Australia's First Saint!
St Francisco Marto, one of the Fatima Children
St Jacinta Marto, one of the Fatima Children
St Bernadette of Lourdes
A Dominican Nun
St Rose of Lima
