Meet Nele the Easter buny! This little bunny is pretending to be an old and battered one.
Standing approximately 7 inches (18cm) from the top oh his head to his toe (plus ears), he is OOAK, lovingly handmade by Atelier Lavendel.
This bunny is made with high quality hand dyed viscose. Her glass eyes are handmade in the Lauscha glass manuafacture. I hand embroidered her nose with cotton embroidery floss. I used organic clean sheep wool to stuff her body and limbs and added some steel shot to her belly to give her the special cuddly feel. This bunny is gentle hand painted using non-toxic pastel colours and bees wax crayon. Her fully and loosely jointed arms, legs and head are movable and pose able. Her dress is sewn with cotton fabric and crochet with cotton tread, her gorgeous cowl is lace weight mohair. I intended this bunny as a little treasure to display or as a special heirloom toy to an older child for gentle play.
Nele is now available here.
Happy sunny Easter to all!

This bear is made with high quality hand painted antique style mohair fabric from traditional working German manufacture Steiff Schulte, which gives him a lovely well much loved vintage appearance. His original glass eyes are handmade in the Lauscha glass manufacture, Germany. I hand embroidered his nose and his claws with cotton embroidery floss. I used organic clean wood shavings to stuff the body and the limbs and added to his chubby belly some steel shot for more lovely weight. This bear is sympathetically aged using several techniques and hand painted with non-toxic colours. His full jointed arms, legs and head are movable and pose able.
His cowl of gorgeous ethically made wool/silk blend yarn and his is hat of original Donegal Tweed can be put off. I intended this bear as a little treasure to display or as a special heirloom toy to an older child for gentle play. Gregor is available here.

First Spring flowers awakening here end there, sunshine and the birds songs filling the air. The Spring is almost there! Exploring, laughing, playing hide and see together – I want you to meet Antonia and Claudine here on my side.
Antonia is an OOAK doll, standing 16 inches, handmade by Atelier Lavendel with lots of love and care. Claudine is her tiny baby doll.

All her clothes are removable and washable.
Antonia has blue eyes, which are carefully hand embroidered. Her hair is made with DollyMo mohair, crocheted into a cap with her braids 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 soft sculptured of carded clean organic sheep wool. Through the inner armature in her neck the head is slightly movable, gentle but most expressive gestures and expressions are possible. The body is firmly stuffed with 100% organic pure wool; the “skin” is of high-quality 100% cotton interlock from traditional Swiss manufacture.
Her shoulder bag with a lamp work mushroom pendant is crochet wit ethically made wool/silk/mohair fibre. Tiny friend of Antonia, she calls her Claudine, is usually sitting in her carry bag quite still and looking around.
