Minikin Photo Gallery
Standing a dimunitive four inches in height (more or less) and weighing in at less than a half-ounce, Minikins are loosely based on real characters (very loosely based).
Minikins are Little Kumquat originals! Sometimes the dolls quaintly caricature someone the we know. Sometimes they're just a figment of our imaginations. Always our own original designs and patterns. Even when we try to duplicate our popular Hercule Poirot doll, each one has its own character and personality.
Every Minikin is handmade by the two of us. Sarah shapes and wraps the "bodies", needle felts and attached the heads, and occasionally makes a sheet of felt or accessory. Elizabeth does all of the design and construction from there on out, investing many hours and hundreds of tiny stitches in each Minikin.
