a doll for Ellie

See, I'm doing it again... just dropping by to show you a doll I made for my friend's littlest daughter. It's her second birthday in early April and I made her a doll that looks just like her.

It's my first attempt at a Waldorf style doll and I have to say I was sorry to see her go to her new home...

I used a hank of badly plied (plyed?) handspun which I dyed with a combination of onion skins and henna for her hair, some of Jessie's old clothes for her outfits and knitted her up a coat. (It's still freezing here so a coat seemed essential.) I have orders for dolls from my own children so I think Ellie's doll won't be my last. I hope she loves her...


  1. She sure is a sweetheart, cheers Marie

  2. She is so adorable!!!! Good job! I'm sure she will be well loved

  3. Oh wow! She's beautiful! What a precious gift.

  4. She's perfect! I can see why you didn't want to give her away. x

  5. Oh how lovely emma!!! Such a cute little nose hihi
    A doll made with love is such a special gift for a child.
