Baby Doll: Mony

Meet Mony! She is a 7 inch/18cm little Waldorf Inspired baby doll designed and handmade by me. I used mohair for her wonderful baby hair, organic cotton velvet for the clothing, organic sheep wool for stuffing and sturdy Swiss made doll making cotton tricot for the face. I love the rich and soft texture of that hat and of  her shawl too – that is made with wool, silk and a bit mohair in dusty shades of blue, grey and pink. This baby loves it,
to put her hat off and to put it back again!

Waldorf Dolls: Whity or Back to the Rooths

My very first Waldorf doll, which I made by myself  looked like this:  hand embroidered star-eyes, the hair made with mohair, sturdy though free movable arms and legs. All in all  – very clear design, a safe and simple construction. Ready for free imaginative play, ready to be loved, be played with and to be treasured. That was the first dress up doll I gave to my children as they were little. And that was also a kind  my very first handmade Waldorf dolls were made, which I offered for sale…

Art Cloth Dolls: Honey

…And here is she  –  Honey. I thought, her  name must be Honey.
I knew it, as soon as I saw her tiny face  for the first time. Her eyes…  And her hair!
Shiny shade of warm translucent brown, one of my favourite colours. Like the fresh honey in a jar, melting in the hot sun of July. I have made this hair with wonderful,
soft Dolly Mo mohair  (love it!  :  )  ).
Honey is  one-of-a-kind cloth doll, handmade by me. She stands approximately 8 inches (22cm). For my dolls I use my own patterns and natural, highest quality materials available.
This doll is made with high quality doll making cotton fabric and stuffed with organic clean sheep wool. Her hair is crocheted mohair wig, securely sewn onto her head. Her facial features are hand embroidered with a cotton floss.

Honey, collectible handmade doll by Atelier Lavendel. Handmade in Germany.Her polka dotted cotton dress is decorated with a crochet rose and has a rick-rack edge, her panties features a white rose bud; her shawl  with a tiny silver bell is a little soft wonder in warm orange merino wool.

In her hair she is wearing a pink velvet head band.

 Her very special heirloom is the orange coral necklace. Honey is always wearing  it on her neck – for luck. Surely  she would love to borrow it to her loving mom, who would be able to wear this gentle piece of handmade jewellery as a delicate and beautiful bracelet. Also for luck, of course! Coral is known for its property to ward off bad thoughts and to encourage the general well-being. Tiny 2,5mm genuine coral beads are strung here on a coral red silk cord with the ends left decoratively to fray.  The coral necklace is to close securely and comfortably  with a very decorative magnetic silver plated closure. This delicate bracelet is 7 inches long, so that it would make a sweet bracelet to a girl or a young woman.
