hi and a warm welcome to my share today.
this is Miss Mulberry
a 12" waldorf inspired doll who has a needle felted head and face with a knitted body.
i have surprised myself with this creation but i have still a way to go in creating this type of doll. i have still loads to learn and there are small improvements with every doll i make, and i have to say there is only so much tutorial books and video's can teach you. i was so hoping to find a waldorf workshop this year..
back to Miss
i have sewn her hair/weft direct onto her head, trimmed the ends at the back and i have given her a little fringe, i have also embroidered her eyes, given her a cheeky grin and given her rosy cheeks.
i was so desperately trying to find a lovely name for her i got stuck on Miss Mulberry due to the colours in her outfit.
Miss Mulberry is complete with a very fetching outfit all of which are knitted.
a lovely dress, coat/cardigan, scarf, hat and a removable pair of shoes
all of the clothes and knitted doll body are inspired from MJT patterns with the exception of the scarf, hat and shoes.
all the yarns used are from a variety of sources including:
eden cottage yarns (milburn 4ply)
west yorkshire spinners (4ply sock yarn - wood pidgeon & dusty miller)
rowan kidsilk haze (blackcurrant)
mohair weft - dark brown - little okie dolls
a small piece of ribbon
DMC embroidery thread
bees wax crayon
the dolls body has been knitted with:
toft fine oatmeal (skin tone) & cream (knickers)
and a needle felted head that has been covered with laibyala fabric.
thanks for stopping by, enjoy your day
craft happy, Ann
