Four Years Later: Ibbie

In 2004 I took a trip to Tokyo, and after Mika Kato, Yayoi Kusama, Hina dolls, Muji, and Puroland, it's no wonder I came back to New York telling everyone who cared to listen that I was going to start making dolls and toys. Since then I have been making dolls for friends.

Friends, meet Ibbie (named after one of my favorite people in the world, Isabel Consuelo T.):



And since she's everything like Isabel, Ibbie has a big, generous, and kind heart.

Chingks, I'm not going to sell Ibbie to YOU. That seems wrong. I'll make you another one.

Daph, you're next!

Jess, coming from you - I'm just blown away - thank you!

Santos - I'll whip one up for you - but Ibbie-sized, yes?
