This is our Ruby and Esme topsy-turvy mascot doll made by the oh-so-
talented kathie Sever.
Little Ruby and Esme has been keeping me
company in my studio for over a year now waiting patiently for her
debut! So, world, here she finally is!
Topsy-Turvy dolls have been around since the early 1900's.
They have long been used for story telling and as friendship
dolls. I don't know a single little or big girl who doesn't utterly adore topsy-turvys.
In our book, the characters Ruby and Esme also love this
doll as she plays a major roll in their friendship. In homage to Ruby and Esme's doll, we've tucked away a surprise project in the book. I can't wait!
