Asha loves to dress up

Good times are never ending when we’re playing and pretending

Are you ready for Valentine’s? I’m making little love bugs for my kids but this new little wool baby doesn’t care as much for Valentine’s day as she cares for Easter. She’s already planning it all. Do you prefer bunnies or lambs? Well, Asha, that is her name, loves them both and she dresses as both. Actually, she also wanted to dress as a baby chick, but I just couldn’t figure that one out. Maybe her new mama can.

This baby gnome doesn’t just dresses up as lamb and bunny, nope, she likes to act like them too. Oh, and she doesn’t get them mixed up, no, she knows to flinch her nose and try to hop when she has her bunny ears and to say “Baaaaa, baaaaa” when she has her little lamb hat on. Baby gnomes are quite smart you know. Did you know that most of them can speak as early as one week old? Isn’t it amazing how the fantasy world works?

After a couple of weeks in the making and deciding on her outfits, Asha is finally ready to find a new home. If you have your eye set on Asha you need to know that pretend play and dressing up is a must with this girl. You must be ready for hours and hours of constant and focused imaginative play, but let me tell you, you will never be bored. Asha has a way of keeping you engaged and very entertained.

Asha is a natural fibers art doll. A brown baby gnome that will surely steal your heart with her eyes full of wonder. She’s just under 8 inches tall. Her arms and legs are filled with clean carded wool. Her torso is filled mostly with glass beads inside a cloth bag, she has some wool in her tummy and tushie though. Her skin is Laib Yala in dark brown color. Her head is made in the traditional Waldorf style with some needle felting to make it extra firm. Her neck is floppy and needs to be supported when handled. Her legs and body are one piece, and her arms are securely attached to her torso. Asha has some soft sculpted details, like knee dimples, a belly button, and a cute little tushie. Asha’s black hair is wild brushable mohair yarn crocheted into a wig cap and then sewn to her head. Her eyes have been hand embroidered with cotton embroidery floss in brown. Her blushing is made with red beeswax.

Asha will go home with the clothes shown in the photos, which includes:

  • A handmade pink and green diaper
  • A handmade flower print dress
  • Handmade booties
  • Handmade bonnet with bunny ears
  • Hand crocheted white mohair lamb costume that includes a hat
  • Hand crocheted bunny

Asha’s adoption fee is 190 USDollars plus shipping (shipping to Mexico is free, 18 USDollars for USA and Canada, 25 USDollars for the rest of the world)

Thank you for taking the time to read about this playful little baby. I hope she finds a home soon, as she can’t wait to meet her forever playing partner.

I will be taking a small break starting February 12 to see family, but I will be back in two weeks to make more cloth babies.

Read you soon.
