I could easily feature Aimee Ray’s creations for all 26 of the Too Cute Tuesday posts I write each year. Her work is adorable, yes, but her designs have so much depth that they go far beyond cute.
Take this Owlet Child, for example. The details are wonderful — from the embroidered feather tufts on the felt chest to the soulful painted expression on her little face. Aimee’s work is always so layered and rich.
I’m lucky enough to own a Lolly Dollie made by Aimee herself that I purchased at the annual Plush You exhibition in Seattle, WA, back in 2009. The little doll hangs in my kitchen and keeps me company while I bake. She is beautiful, whimsical and always makes me smile!
