Fun With Dolls

I have been working on some dolls ......Variety is the spice of life so "They" say :)

The first picture is of some pin dolls... called "Wild Women".
                          They measure 2 1/2" tall.
 They are so much fun to do and being creative...... the sky's the limit.
 These tiny dolls are called Waldorf Dolls.. measuring 2" tall.
                          No features and all hand done..
They rest in a sweet little leaf that I have hand embroidered.
THey are made from wool felt and the leaf fits in the palm of your hand.
So Sweet and the little people just love them.

I love those Waldorf dolls. I would love to try to make them. Are they difficult Maggie?
No bear for 2 days now but I am still frightened. He was only about 10 feet from me and Teddy. We have been limbing up the evergreens so we can see further into the woods now. That will give us more of a chance. LOL

Hi ladies..
Thanks for stopping by and leaving ssweet comments.. It always makes my day:)
Sharon the Waldorf dolls are not hard to make.I drafted up a couple of patterns after I googled them.. Simple but so sweet. Shairon.. you gotta make some wild women.. they are such fun. I didn't know there was a book.. I just saw some in a magazine and got inspired..I have lots of the arms/legs & faces that I use in my other art so I was well prepared..
I am into fibre art so deep it isn't funny. I have had monthly orders from Joggles with all kinds of goodies to keep my muse busy..I will share some pics soon..Thanks again for visiting.. do come again:)
