All you need is love.
– The Beatles
Happy New Year to all of you. I hope this year is treating you nicely so far. I’m pretty excited about this year since I have new ideas and new goals. One of them is focusing more on natural fiber dolls, you know, the Waldorf inspired kind. That is why I wanted my first doll of the year to be one of them. Now meet my loving Valentina. She’s full of love and loves hearts and the color pink. She’s truly a Valentine’s baby, so I think her name is just perfect for her. I know, I know, we are still over a month away from Valentines, hey! I haven’t even taken down my Christmas tree. Though, we Puerto ricans tend to keep our trees up until February, but that’s another story.
I do make my holiday themed babies a long time ahead though. This I do because, unless they find a home here in Mexico, they most likely will take 3 to 5 weeks to get to their new homes.
Now more about sweet Valentina. Valentina loves kisses, hugs, and cuddles. She loves sweets, specially heart shaped chocolates. Her favorite song is “All you need is love” from The Beatles. She basically loves anything with hearts on it. So you can understand why I had to make so many hearts for her outfits. She also loves to dress like Cupid, so of course she made me sew a cupid costume for her. Girls can be cupids too. In fact, girls can be whatever they want to be.
Valentina is a 14 inch natural fibers baby doll. She’s filled with clean wool. Her head is made in the traditional Waldorf style and then needle felted to make it firm. Her skin is DWE in a sunkissed color. She has a cute little tushie and a belly button. Valentina’s light brown curly hair is made with loopy mohair yarn that has been crocheted into a wig cap with some strands tied around it and is sewn twice to her head. Her eyes are hand embroidered with cotton embroidery floss in blue. Her blushing is made with an orange/red beeswax crayon.
Valentina can be a toy for children 5 and up that do not mouth their toys anymore. Never leave a small child with a stuffed toy.
Valentina will go home with the the clothes and accessories shown in the photos, which includes:
- A handmade cotton pink with hearts details dress with velcro closure in the back (easier for little hands to open and close)
- A handmade diaper with velcro
- A handmade pair of pink leg warmers made from unused kid’s socks
- Handmade red cotton bloomers
- Hand crocheted pink cotton and wool heart headband
- Hand crocheted pink cotton and wool booties
- Sized down baby knit sweater with buttons (choking hazard for small kids)
- Hand crocheted pink wool bonnet with satin ribbon
- Sized down and customized baby sleep sack
- Red satin ribbon headband with red hand crocheted hearts
- Hand crocheted with cotton and mohair yarns angel wings
- Handmade baby lovey
