Meet Scarlet - a handmade Waldorf inspired Heirloom Doll
Scarlett is a dog groomer part of the week, and the rest of her week is spent dressing up as a Fairy for children's parties. She gets to play dress up and sew her own costumes which she just loves, using vintage and recycled materials in her elaborate fairy costumes. On the weekend Scarlett can be found watching old Western movies or scouring her local markets and charity shops for vintage textiles to use in her costumes, or thimbles to add to her sewing collection.
She loves chocolate cake, singing loudly in the car, and fluffy cats!
Scarlett will come to you wearing a beautiful vintage upcycled removable dress in cotton with embroidery, an upcycled quilted jacket and matching crown. a Leather ag and leg warmers
Scartlett will arrive in a cotton or wool ag for her protection.
My collection of Waldorf inspired dolls are inspired by traditional Waldorf doll making techniques, using a wool core head to "sculpt a beautiful face and arms. I have then combined my own style of doll making and love of textiles to create my own unique Waldorf style dolls with cloth body and arms. Faces are left deliberately simple in order for a child to impart their own imagination on their doll. The wool used to layer inside the head is warm and retains scent, imparting a feeling of comfort and familiarity for your child. Each doll is handmade, takes up to 10 hours to complete, and is a unique, one off design. I only ever make one of each style.
Your doll will come in a cotton drawstring ag for her protection on her journey to you!
Materials: Pure NZ Wool, organic cotton, vintage fabrics and new fibrefill
Skin Fabric is De Witte Engel interlock Jersey fabric - the gold standard in doll making!
