Lucie the Juggler

Hello there. Are you keeping yourself busy? I have been making some mess in the studio with my cutter and glue this week. Remember the last paper dolls I made of Alice and the White Rabbit? Well, those two were sold a while ago and since then I have had people asking if I were planning on making more. So here she is...


This little precious is Lucie. She's a born juggler and a star of the circus in town. I had in mind to do a drawing of her, but then decided to turn her into a paper doll instead. I really enjoyed designing her costume, especially sewing the tiny coppery beads onto the red felt. Oh, it was so good to put my little beading needle to work again. I think I might create a special series based on this character alone. What do you think? It would be super tricky to fit doll making into my already tight schedule, but I know it would definitely be worth it.

She's now available in my shop. :)



  1. How beautiful, lovely little doll, dear. As always I dream with a better world when I visit you.

  3. I like these paper standees of yours. What about doing that wind in the willows frog character? That would be cool.

  9. Lucy's lovely! I like her costume with beads twinkling... Please, keep your needle busy!:)It would be interesting to see Lucy juggling, yes!
    You say it's a paper doll, Amalia, but I have the feeling it's a wooden one.:) Have you thought of making more costumes to change?Love!xx
