I have created this handmade children tote bag as a gift for a sweet little girl some time ago.
It is made with white linen fabric, lined with all over flowered cotton, a silhouette of a gnome girl stitched on it. It is a stitching pattern by FeinKram .
A little bit nostalgic and oh so romance! : )
Two tiny Waldorf angel dolls for two little sisters.
These dollies are carefully made by hand (no sewing mashine used). I have made them using organic wool fleece, clean sheep wool for stuffing and mohair for theyr hair, which is decorated with a tiny bow. These little guardian angels are a safe addition to your childrens play room.
More little Atelier Lavendel guardian angel dolls are available here and here now.
Meet Esther,15 inches (36cm) OOAK doll, handmade by Atelier Lavendel using organic best quality materials possible. I have sculptured her head of clean organic sheep wool in the Waldorf style of European doll making. She has a nose and a neck, ears, a sweet bum and a belly button. Her hair is made with mohair, her buns can be braided. It can be also gently combed an restyled. I have embroidered her brown eyes and her sweet mouth with cotton embroidery floss. Her festive dress is made with organic cotton jersey, cotton fabric and a bit of organza. She wears undies, matching pants, crocheted blue Mary Jane shoes und socks of organic jersey in a dusty shade of blue. Her shawl is made with plant duyed wool. The clousure is decorated with little red wooden balls. All her clothes can be put off and have no button fastenings.

A sweet set of handmade doll clothes is ready. I have choosen fresh and breezy blue colours, added a bit of warm pink and harmonized that all with the quiet off-white. High quality cotton fabrics, certificated organic cotton jersey, local plant dyed merino wool and a bit of airy organza (that one just had to be there! : ) ). That all together feels like a fresh Spring breeze!..
Choosing her favourite colours… Meet Iness! She is an OOAK custom doll, carefully handmade by Atelier Lavendel. That is a very special magic lying about her eyes. That has been quite for a long time, that I used to made this kind of doll eyes, which looks like tiny stars sparkling. So I am really thankfull to my customers making me come back to this very traditional way to make Waldorf dolls. Her thick and soft brown hair are special to me too. I used very soft plant dyed merino wool for it. I stiched ewery one single hait to dolls head. That is a very meditative activity to me, wjch is requiring quite of time. By the way, such hair is really durable,
any hair styles are possible.
