Charlotte’s New Socks

Charlotte and I have had such a fun time! We had planned for her to have a warm sweater for these snowy days that we’ve been having but when she saw the sweater, she insisted that she also have hand knitted (and very tiny) socks. I calmly explained to her that I had never made socks this tiny before and I wasn’t sure that I would be able to do that so we should make her some soft cotton fabric socks. She was having none of that! She calmly explained to me that creating a wee sock pattern was on my “To Do” list and now was as good a time as any to give it a try. Well, she was right of course, and her socks are adorable and we’re both very happy with them. I’m sure that more wooly children with wee socks will be on the way in the future. I just can never refuse them!

The materials that I’ve used to create sweet Charlotte are as follows: Laib Yala doll skin fabric, in “Tanned Peach” from Switzerland and cleaned and carded wool from Canada. Her hair is made with a crocheted wig cap using Wild Brushable mohair yarn and then strands are added all over the cap, rug hook style. Charlotte’s hair may be gently styled and finger combed. I have used DMC cotton floss for the face stitches and Gutermann thread for the sewing of the doll and the clothing. Her cheeks are lightly blushed with Stockmar beeswax crayon No. 1.

Charlotte is wearing wee pink panties under her soft blue leggings and creamy tee shirt. Over her organic knit basics, she has an adorable soft blue corduroy overall dress with Liberty print bodice lining and wooden flower buttons covering metal snaps. To keep Charlotte warm in cooler weather, she has a rosy pink, woolen hand knit sweater and medium brown, worsted merino crochet shoes over her wee silk/merino socks. She also has an organic, pink striped headband to accessorize her long hair.

Thank you so much for your interest in sweet little Charlotte! We’ve had such fun together over the last couple of chilly weeks and we’re both excited for her to find her new home! Here in the studio, the dolly shenanigans will continue with a sweet new wooly child to show you soon. She’s finished but we’re working on her new clothes and such. Stay cosy and have a lovely day, dear friends!

Love and wooly hugs,

Shawn and Charlotte


Playful Little Becky

Presenting playful little Becky! She will arrive in your arms ready for a big hug and lots of fun. She loves to play in the garden among the flowers and is requesting lots of stories, especially the ones made up that she’s never heard before. I must tell you that she doesn’t really like naps but she promises to lay quietly and rest when it’s nap time.

The materials that I’ve used to create sweet Becky are as follows: De Witte Engel doll skin fabric from the Netherlands and cleaned and carded wool from Canada. Her hair is made with a crocheted wig cap using fluffy mohair yarn and then strands are added all over the cap, rug hook style, and then braided. I have used DMC cotton floss for the face stitches and Gutermann thread for the sewing of the doll and the clothing. Her cheeks are lightly blushed with Stockmar beeswax crayon No. 1.

Becky is wearing wee, cotton knit white panties under her Mona Luna cotton double gauze, pinafore dress and cotton knit leggings and socks. All clothing fabrics are organic. To keep her toasty warm on cool days, she has a super soft, Manos del Uruguay worsted merino hand knit sweater and crochet shoes. Her little lace shawl is Manos del Uruguay silk blend.

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
