About a year ago, a lady visited my shop and asked if I could make three little cuddle dolls (pilou's) for her three daughters. She asked this because she thought they needed a travel companion.
Of course, I was interested in where and why.
She told me one of her three children had a brain tumor and here in Holland was no treatment available, anymore.
They had to go to the USA for treatment and decided to go with their whole family.
A few days later, three adorable toddlers came in to choose the color of the hair and clothes for their own doll.
The girl who was ill, lost her hair due to chemo. She completely fell in love with the bold doll I had ready for her. She didn't want the doll to have hair. "No hair!" she said.
I told the mama, I could make the wig as a hat, so she could put it on and of as she likes. And that's what we did.
Now, about a year later, mama walked in again. It took a minute before I realized who she was, she looked much more firm and cheerful. She came to ask me if I could stitch the wig on.
The little girl is cured and her hair has grown back.
