Handmade Doll Easter Bunny

Shop Hop Saturday with abitosunshineWelcome to another Shop Hop Saturday post! At Shop Hop Saturday we share our business related blog posts for the week. And help others who have shared their posts by following their blogs, commenting and sharing the ups and downs of online business.

This week's challenge is to promote one product I sell and try to encourage others to purchase the item. I have chosen my very first original doll. I drew up the design myself. I always use other peoples patterns for my dolls, so this has been a big milestone for me to create my own item. 


This adorable little bunny stands 12” high. 

Her ears and facial features are hand painted. Her body has been lightly stained with a coffee/vanilla/cinnamon mixture. Her dress and bloomers are removable so that she can be dressed for different holidays and occasions.  Her bow can be easily removed.


This bunny is a one of a kind doll made by me, Holly Gordon, of Holly’s Dollies. As she is the prototype doll for this line, she will be highly collectible. 
Polly is dressed in a yellow Easter Print dress, matching bow and white bloomers. The dress, bloomers and bow were not stained. She would be a great addition to your home as an Easter or Prim decoration. I will be offering a line of dresses and outfits for various holidays and seasons for this doll. Watch for her sweetie, Peter, coming down the Bunny Trail.

Polly is currently available at my Etsy Shoppe. Please stop by and show her some love. She told me this morning she is lonely, so I will be creating some sisters and brothers for her. Of course, each will be different in it's own way, from staining to facial features.

All dolls are signed by me, Holly's Dollies, and dated with month/year created.
Note: This doll is not meant for a play doll for children. It is only as a decoration piece for adults to love and cuddle and display in their collections.


  1. Holly, Polly is adorable and she is now SOLD! I just visited your Etsy shop and purchased her!

    You sold me on this Polly dolly by two things -- the beautifully created spring sunshine costume creation and the fact that you'll be creating clothing for her for upcoming holidays. I look forward to changing Polly's look!

    Your Product Post for Shop Hop Saturday is awesome! I do hope you'll continue with product posts on your blog in the future.

  2. PS... I also love the fact that Polly is YOUR creation, your design, as opposed to being created from a pattern.

    BRAVO for you, Holly!

  3. Oh thank you, Ruthi!
    Yes, it was a lot of fun designing her myself. My very first one. I was so scared to even try.
    Thanks again for the purchase. Polly is excited to come home to you!

  4. You're ever so welcome m'dear! I can't wait to welcome your Polly home!

  5. Polly arrived in her new home -- my home -- yesterday! Holly, she is delightful!
