HandmadeMN Giveaway - Inviting Play

By Mara Olden of Dragonfly Adornments

Congratulations to our latest giveaway winner! Thanks to all who entered and we wish you good luck with this week's giveaway!


This week's giveaway is from Julie of Inviting Play.  Julie is giving away this Waldorf Baby Doll.

Julie Colby of Inviting Play created this 12" Waldorf Baby Doll. It was handmade by Julie by using traditional methods and all natural materials. The features of her dolls are kept simple and neutral. All of Julie's dolls are stuffed with Minnesota wool and made with natural fibers such as cotton, wool, mohair, and alpaca. Each doll is completely unique and one of a kind. This very sweet baby has bent baby shaped limbs, a belly button, a cotton velour diaper, wool felt slippers, a cotton linen dress with beautiful cotton Swedish trim, a soft cloud of blue mohair for hair that can be gently brushed and finger styled, and a velour hat. All of the doll's clothes come off and are constructed with children in mind so that the doll can be dressed easily. This is the perfect sized baby for 1 - 5 year old children. Children under three should be supervised as needed because mohair sheds and is not good to eat.


Open US and International.
