Brown Girl Dolls were birthed out of my desire to share my grandma’s legacy of love through crocheted dolls. When I was young I asked my grandmother, Dorothy, to crochet a doll. Her response was she didn’t know how. I believed that she could make anything and I asked if she would try. Well, she crafted my first doll and named her Lovie. Not long after that she made Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, Poppa Smurf, Smurfette, Handy & Brainy Smurf. She took on the challenge of creating crocheted dolls because she loved me and I believed she could. My grandmother continued sharing her love by crocheting items for all her grand and great grandchildren.
In September 2015 a good friend challenged me to create a doll. I took on the challenge without hesitation because I believed I could create a doll with my grandma’s help. Grandma resides in heaven now yet everytime I crochet it’s like being in a room with her again. I am a crochet artisan because she took the time to train me and for that I am grateful.
