As you can possibly imagine, daisy is favourite flower of this little girl. Her name is Emilia. She even called her little bear Daisy… She also loves poppies, colourful butterflies, playing in the sun, go bathing (do not let her do it alone, please, she can not swim! : ) ) and dreaming… Emily loves the Summer!
Emilia is an OOAK doll, standing 16 inches (40cm) , handmade by Atelier Lavendel with lots of love and attention to details. Daisy is her little bear, Emilia loves it to play with her above all.
Emilia wears a Liberty of London dress, decorated with vintage Westfalian German cotton lace and a tunic of organic linen above, pants of organic cotton jersey and undies beneath, a cowl crochet with finest moss green lace weight mohair, light as a feather and oh wonderful soft. Her shoes are crochet with plant dyed wool.
Emilia´s special heirloom is her genuine shaded Pink Coral bracelet. Coral is sad to be protective and lucky when worn as jewellery. The antiques believed, the use of Coral can increase wisdom, peace and harmony. 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 a magnetic silver metal closure. This delicate piece of jewellery is 7 inches long, so that it would make a sweet bracelet to a girl or young woman.
Emilia has brown eyes, which are carefully hand embroidered. Her hair is made with hand dyed (I used ECO friendly plant dyes) and hand sewn weft, crocheted into a cap, 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. All seams are double-sewn for more durability.
Daisy is Emilia´s little bear. Standing approximately 5 inches (14cm), she is an OOAK vintage style weighted artist bear, lovingly handmade by Atelier Lavendel, using my designs and high-quality all natural materials. This bear is made with high quality hand painted viscose, which gives her a lovely well much loved vintage appearance. Her original glass eyes are handmade in the Lauscha glass manufacture, Germany. I hand embroidered her nose with cotton embroidery floss. I used organic clean sheep wool to stuff the body and the limbs and added to the belly some steel shot, which is safely placed within a linen bag, for more lovely weight. This bear is hand painted using non-toxic pastel colours. Her fully jointed arms, legs and head are movable and pose able. Her hat, his cowl with a vintage rose and tiny bell on its top is made with wool/silk and 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.
Emilia and Daisy are now available here and here.
Wishing a wonderful summer to all of you!
