LoLaLi Collectable Dolls.

Franci Barnard is the creator and maker at LoLaLi Soft Design.  Since before she could remember, Franci couldn’t walk past a soft toy in a shop and not give it a hug. She always thought that they have feelings too and needed to be loved. Growing up, Franci loved to collect any doll or toy that had personality in their eyes.

The inspiration.

Franci started making dolls after she couldn’t find a bunny doll that ‘spoke to her heart’ when she was designing a bunny themed room for her newly born twin girls. She came across a bunny pattern in a magazine and gave it a go. It was so successful and feedback was so positive from other Mums that the rest is history!

The process.

All the dolls are made of calico material and synthetic fur. The dresses are made of 100% cotton material.  Franci is a self-taught dollmaker and all the patterns are her own. All the characters are designed so that their faces can be painted. This makes each one unique with the LoLaLi signature style.
