Meet Keira and Omo!
Keira is an one of a kind nat­ur­al fibers doll, stand­ing 17 inch­es, hand­made by Ate­lier Laven­del with lots of  love and of care. Omo is her tiny guardian angel  and the most devot­ed friend.

Keira is wear­ing a gold­en pol­ka-dot­ted cot­ton dress with the cot­ton band applique, fea­tur­ing two angels and an under­skirt of organ­ic checked cot­ton fab­ric with cot­ton lace edge. She has striped pants of organ­ic cot­ton jer­sey and undies beneath.  Her  boots are made with high qual­i­ty wool felt in off-white and grey, the are dec­o­rat­ed with the nos­tal­gic linen but­tons on the back. Her cowl with two pom­poms and match­ing hand warm­ers are knit­ted of a shad­ed merino/camel wool blend with the won­der­ful rich touch. I  embroi­dered the edges if her hand warm­ers with pearly seed beads to cel­e­brate that angel like, snowy white and gen­tle spir­it.
Her bag  is cro­chet with the gor­geous eth­i­cal­ly made shad­ed wool/silk/mohair yarn. The tex­ture of this yarn is so rich and tasty, I tried not to add too much, I left it free of every influ­ence, just pure joy for the fin­gers to touch and for the eyes to look at. But a lit­tle sea shell but­ton on a tiny bowl on the left side just has to be there!

Omo is the lit­tle friend and  devot­ed guardian angel of Keira. She is fol­low­ing Keira every­where, curi­ous­ly look­ing out of her car­ry bag. Omo is com­plete­ly sewn by hand using high qual­i­ty wool felt, doll mak­ing jer­sey and organ­ic clean sheep wool. Omo has angel wings of pure felt an tiny sil­ver bell on a sil­ver thread.  I used fluffy Dol­ly­Mo mohair for her hair. Her woolen cowl with a tiny sil­ver bell can be put off, her hair can be gen­tle combed.

Keira has blue eyes, which are care­ful­ly hand embroi­dered.
Her hair are made with the won­der­ful Dol­ly­Mo mohair, cro­cheted into a cap. It is fas­tened on both sides of her head pony-tails style, it can be  restyled and gen­tly combed. This doll has a neck, ears, a bel­ly but­ton and a sweet bum.
Her head is sculp­tured of card­ed clean organ­ic sheep wool in the tra­di­tion­al Wal­dorf style of Euro­pean doll mak­ing. The body is firm­ly stuffed with 100% organ­ic pure wool; the “skin” is of high-qual­i­ty 100% cot­ton inter­lock from tra­di­tion­al Swiss man­u­fac­ture. All seams are dou­ble-sewn for more dura­bil­i­ty. Keira and Omo are now avail­able here and here.

Dur­ing these white days, full with snow and quiet­ness, a lit­tle angel has shown itself. Curi­ous. Cheeky. Hop­ping hap­pi­ly in the fresh snow. Is it then real­ly an angel?, my lit­tle one asked. Well, I believe, it is!…

It is com­plete­ly sewn by hand, stich by stich, no sewing machine is being used.  I gave him a lit­tle mag­i­cal sil­ver bell, so that lit­tle dream­er can always come find the way back to his friends .

Dorothy and Jess: Looking forward to Spring

♥♥♥

Waldorf inspired ooak dolls by Atelier Lavendel are lovingly handmade with all natural best quality materials. Handmade in Germany.

Meet Dorothy and Jess, two lit­tle sis­ters, two win­ter chil­dren. Boths girls came into this world, when the cold wind was blow­ing and snow flakes were danc­ing in the gar­den. Nev­er­the­less, Dorothy is dream­ing about  the Spring. Dream­ing about the gen­tle breeze to sing-song  in her hair, for the sun shin­ing on he cheeks… She has already put on her best dress, all over with bloom­ing  flow­ers. She is dream­ing…  Jess is dif­fer­ent. Thik shawl and woollen hat on, rosy checks, well pro­tect­ed from the cold with her lit­tle cud­dly blan­ket, she seems pret­ty hap­py with the win­ter and the snow. Well, if I had have such cosy  cloth­ing I sure­ly also would be… ;  )

Dorothy is an OOAK doll, stand­ing 17 inch­es. Jess is her tiny baby sis­ter, 5 inch­es tall.
Dorothy wears a Lib­er­ty cot­ton fab­ric dress with cot­ton lace and  rick rack edge, undies (not pic­tured) and a grey and pink pol­ka dot­ted under­skirt of organ­ic cot­ton beneath,  her cowl with two pom­pons is made of undyed alpaca knit. Her oth­er shawl is made with the finest lace weight mohair. It is amaz­ing­ly soft and light like a feath­er. Her  leg­gings have a nice edge, they are made with organ­ic cot­ton jer­sey. Her shoes are made with high qual­i­ty pure woo felt and dec­o­rat­ed with vin­tage linen but­tons.
Her very spe­cial heir­loom is the gen­uine pink coral bracelet, she is wear­ing. 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 bracelet is to close secure­ly and com­fort­ably  with a  mag­net­ic sil­ver met­al clo­sure. This del­i­cate bracelet is 7 inch­es long, so that it would make a sweet bracelet to a girl or a young woman.

Jess´s cloth­ing is made with cot­ton velour, she can hap­pi­ly put off her green woollen cowl with a tiny sil­ver bell and her cosy hat of a gor­geous eth­i­cal­ly pro­duced wool/silk/mohair blend. I t is dec­o­rat­ed   with a green leaf on the top, which is  made with pure wool felt. She pos­sess a tiny blan­ket (it is bring­ing her sweet dreams), which she would nev­er want to part with, is oh so won­der­ful soft.  I have made it for her  with organ­ic undyed alpaca yarn.
The cosy car­ry bag, where Jess is sleep­ing most of the time,  is cro­chet of the same yarn as her hat, it is a beau­ti­ful wool/mohair/silk blend. The tex­ture of this yarn is so rich and tasty, I tried not to add too much, I left it free of every influ­ence, just pure joy for the fin­ger to touch and for the eye to look at.
By the way, Dorothy her­self has a cosy bag of her very own (not pic­tured). It is made with cot­ton fab­ric and cot­ton velour and can be used as a stor­age bag for both friends dur­ing the qui­et times, or just for gift-giv­ing.

Dorothy and Jess: Clothing Details

Dorothy is wait­ing for her under-scirt.  Shall it be gray? Shall that be pink?  I believe, that is going to be both of it… Any­way, some cloth­ing are ready by now. Let us see! Shall we start with the boots? Well, they are made of pure wool felt (it is cold here! ), dec­o­rat­ed with two vin­tage cloth but­tons. I have cho­sen off-white and gray colours. It is so win­tery.
Rich, soft, warm, a real feast for the eyes to look at and for the hands to touch are the yarns of Jess´s  cro­chet car­ry bag and her hat. This is a gor­geous  wool/silk/mohair blend, no poly used.
Dorothy loves scarfs. Or — cowls. The white one she is wear­ing, is knit­ted with organ­ic undyed alpaca wool. Love the pom­poms.
The lilac cowl I made for Dorothy, after thick white snow flakes start­ed to cov­er all the plants in our gar­den again. I made it with finest lace weight mohair on silk. Soft, silky, light as a feath­er. And some pal­li­etts too to shine up the day.
Dorothy´s very spe­cial heir­loom is her gen­uine pink coral bracelet. 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.  This coral bracelet is to close secure­ly and com­fort­ably  with mag­net­ic sil­ver met­al clo­sure. It  is 7 inch­es long, so that it would make a sweet bracelet to a girl or a young woman.
