Pylones Philippines & Dolldalita Dollmaker: Doll-Making Workshop

Team Hernandez took a break from Playschool Hunting and Blogging this Sunday when we attended a dollmaking workshop at Pylones Philippines in PowerPlant Mall, Rockwell. Despite having zero-skills in sewing and dollmaking, I bravely signed up for the workshop sponsored by @Pylonesph and @dolldalitadollmaker. We simply wanted to take a break and bond as a family.


Besides, after IG-stalking @pylonesph and @dolldalitadollmaker, I knew Team Hernandez would enjoy the day! 

Everyone knows that Pylones is home the cutest and funkiest stuff imaginable. Pylones is the perfect place for this one-of-a-kind workshop. Their shop in Rockwell is cat-heaven for me already. (hint: this where you shop me a gift!). 
cats! cats everywhere!

@dolldalitadollmaker speaks for itself. The account and business, owned and managed by Mommy Jac, sells Waldorf-styled dolls. You can even ask her for custom-made stuffed dolls. Prices are very affordable, too! 



The event started at 2pm, and Pylones soon got filled with Mommies and Daddies with their daughters and surprisingly, their sons! I love how dolls aren't stereotyped as girls' toys anymore.

Each family was given Mommy and Daughter patterns and sewing kit.



Little girls were supposed to help their Mommies by making the Daughter doll, but since Baby Charley was more interested in eating the stuff, looking a the cute displays at Pylones, and playing with the other babies, Boss 'Ayat ended up making the Daughter Doll instead.


Not that he was complaining cos he sews better than I did!

After an hour and a half of "pretend" sewing and doll-making, the workshop ended, and we're very happy that Baby Charley got to take home two new dolls made by her Mommy and Daddy. 


The workshop really was a blast! Everyone present had fun sewing, making dolls, and bonding with each other. I believe besides the free Mommy and Daughter dolls and the newly discovered skills *ehem!*, what we loved more was the great opportunity to bond with each other as a family and a great kwentuhan topic in the future.

Our Mommy and Daughter dolls may not be close to perfection, but we're proud to tell Baby Charley in the future that Mommy and Daddy made them for her. 

Thank you @PylonesPh and @Dolldalitadollmaker for this awesome Sunday afternoon.

  14. I've seen this store! I thought it had a lot of cute things but I didn't know there were doll making materials. Now, if only I had a little girl to make these dolls with. My daughter is a teen now and she was never really interested in dolls.

  15. Charley's busy again! :) I love the dolls! Wish my son and I can bond over that too. I don’t stereotype dolls. I think it's a great learning tool for boys to encourage them to be more nurturing.
