Dear Little Juliana

I’m so pleased to introduce you to little Juliana! She has been keeping me company for several weeks, waiting for me to finish her outfit. We spent lots of time together imagining, designing and carefully stitching her wee dress, underclothes and collar. We both love this charming print and are so happy that it made the perfect little dress for her. I knitted her warm pixie hat using super soft Malabrigo worsted merino, a favorite of mine for many years.

Juliana is a small Waldorf inspired doll standing approximately 12 inches tall. She is stitched from premium Laib Yala doll skin fabric in the shade “Tanned Peach” and stuffed with pure, cleaned and carded wool from Canada. I have needle felted her face to give her slightly more realistic definition while also maintaining the Waldorf inspired appearance. Juliana’s hair is made with a precious fluffy cap that I crocheted using Wild Brushable mohair yarn. I love the young child look of this style! The embroidery floss for her face is DMC and the thread for stitching the doll and her clothing is Gütermann. Juliana is lightly blushed with Stockmar beeswax crayon No. 1.

Clothing for this little one is a cotton broadcloth, floral print dress over organic knit panties and socks. The dress back closes with small metal snaps. She also wears a detachable, cotton velveteen collar that ties over her shoulders with a dotted pink ribbon. Her little hat completes the outfit. Juliana contains small parts and is not intended for children under 3.

If Juliana speaks to your heart and you would like to adopt her, please visit my Etsy shop using the menu or email me directly. Thank you so much for your interest in little Juliana!

Love and wooly hugs,

Shawn and Juliana
