African Blue Bells
Akili Imani Kenya Ashanti Sasha
Can you guess why these dolls are called African Blue Bells? There are the colors on the African fabric which is blue and white patterns and shapes. The dresses are adorned with heavy iridescent or pearl beading. Each of the dolls' dresses are unique, but their dresses were all crocheted using cotton African fabric. By using crocheting as the technique and design, their dresses, resemble a bell shaped form. The dress is thick, heavy and yet elegant. The vision I have are that if these dresses could stand on their own, they would do so, like a bell placed on a table. The texture of the dresses are sturdy, pleasant and smooth. The idea behind the African Blue Bells dolls is just an inspiration of what is friendship, sisterhood and family. These dolls are one of a kind. We hope to make them available for sale in April 2018. Stay tuned for more even the African Blue Bell song and storyline.
