Doll-A-Day 2017 #98: Shrunken Saturday:Tiny Thread People

 UPDATE: These dolls are at least inspired by the yarn dolls of  Stefania Lazarska. Check them out online. They are wonderful.
  I spent the day today at the flea market with my friend Lori. I'll tell you all about that tomorrow and show you some of the things I got. But today the Shrunken Saturday posts focuses on these two tiny thread dolls.

They're about 1 3/4 inches tall.

They are made of thread wrapped wire, so they are somewhat posable.

I like the tiny little fringes on his socks!

They're so tiny that they don't really have faces,just some mouth and eye smears.

See you tomorrow to look at those flea market goodies!


  1. They look kind of Norwegian.

  2. nice, I had one of these as a child, it was mommymade i think.
    this pair looks Swiss to me, I think the region Appenzell.


Thanks in advance for your comments.
