These two girls had a lot of fun playing with the peg dolls ! The pink doll is made of two colors organic velours, the purple and red girl has a little feather in her hair.
Please meet Snow, a gorgeous Waldorf doll with blue eyes, fair skin and a lots of dark curls around her face. She prefers to wear white: ‘just like the snow’ she says. I have named her Snow for now, until she gets her forever name from her new mommy. Her dress has a thin layer of tule with tiny dots, just like little snowflakes… She does not like wintercoats: ‘It feels too tight, I can’t dance in them’, she says. If I would let her, she would sneak out in the morning barefoot and dance on the white frozen grass. Just to keep her warm I made her a crochet shawl of soft alpaca to wrap around her and a hairband to match. She is a gentle soul and can be very dreamy, she makes up stories in her head and plays them with her set of wooden dolls. Her favorite set is Snow white and the seven dwarfs, she plays with them for hours and when she gets tired she lovingly covers them with her shawl for a blanket and kisses them goodnight. Snow has already found a loving home.
Just wanted to share this little guy with you, he was made last december as a St. Nicolas gift for a little boy. He is inspired by the lovely book Le Petit Prince by Antoine De Saint-Exupéry about a little boy who lives on a planet. I have made Petit Prince dolls before but always with a soft velours body, this is the first one that has a tricot body and clothes that can be removed. This doll is very similar to the baby doll I make, but in order to resemble the body of an older child I gave him slender arms and legs.
Last weekend I had a market stall at my daughters school to sell my dolls. It was great fun to meet some customers in person and be able to talk to them. I had a few very small customers too, who came with a little pocket money clenched in their fists. Especially for them I made a lot of small wooden dollies so there was something to find for everyone. I made some bigger dolls as well and some fairies and needle felted animals and even a little dragon …
The items that were not sold will be uploaded over the next few days, I already made a start, so if you are looking for some handmade goodies, please take a look in my little shop.
