Happiness is not one big thing. It’s all the little things put together.
The last babies of the year are ready for a new home. These two babies were born as a little surprise. My hands just started creating though I didn’t have a specific plan. I literally just wanted to try something new I had just learned. The more I worked on them, the more clear things seemed. I first quickly realized they were both going to be girls, their names came to me right away, and I could swear I heard them say they both wanted crazy curls, and matching outfits.
I must say the outfits were the hardest part to decide. They fell in love with the baby mushrooms hats, so I kind of had an idea of what to make them, but I wasn’t sure what the rest of the outfit was going to be like. I made a couple of sketches until they finally approved one. I really like how it turned out. I hope you do too.
Even though this baby was the second one I started, it was the first one to be finished. Her name is Carola and she’s as sweet as can be. Carola is very loving, very playful, and can sometimes be loud. Fortunately she’s loud only at home, when we go outside she turns into a complete different child. Outside the house she’s a shy girl, that won’t smile at anyone and she won’t let you put her down at all. Once she starts getting to know the people around her, she will warm up to them but will always keep an eye on you. You won’t be able to go very far without her.
Some of Carola’s favorite things are mushrooms, strawberries, toy cars, finger games, and books about fairies.
Carola is an 11 inch baby girl. Her skin is Heavy Weight Laib Yala in dark brown. Her black eyes have been hand embroidered with DMC thread, and her hair is a big loop mohair hand crocheted wig cap with some loop stitches here and there. Her blushing was made with a red beeswax crayon and is not permanent. She is a natural fibers doll, filled with clean wool. Her head has been made in the traditional Waldorf style but has also been needle felted to make it firmer. She can bend her arms at the shoulders, elbows, and wrists. She can bend her legs at the hip and knees. Her head is wobbly and can tilt to the sides, front, and back.
The second baby is Carmela. Carmela is shy here and there and everywhere. She giggles a lot but won’t let many people hold her. Only the ones she truly trusts. You may need to be a little patient with this baby until she gets used to her new home and you.
Carmela’s favorite things are mushrooms, peanuts, chocolates, mermaids, lullabies, rhymes, books about dragons, and drawing. She will literally go through a block of paper in less than a month.
Carmela is an 11 inch baby girl. Her skin is DWE in light brown. Her dark green eyes have been hand embroidered with DMC thread, and her hair is a big loop mohair hand crocheted wig cap with some loop stitches here and there. Her blushing was made with an orange/red beeswax crayon and is not permanent. She is a natural fibers doll, filled with clean wool. Her head has been made in the traditional Waldorf style but has also been needle felted to make it firmer. She can bend her arms at the shoulders, elbows, and wrists. She can bend her legs at the hip and knees. Her head is wobbly and can tilt to the sides, front, and back.
Each one of these girls will go home with the following clothes and accessories:
- Handmade linen and cotton long sleeve blouse. (Pattern by Meadowfinch)
- Handmade cotton diaper with safety pin.
- Handmade cotton bloomers
- Hand crocheted booties with ruffles
- Hand crocheted mushroom hat (modified pattern by Porcelain Lamb)
- Handmade sleep sack. (Pattern by Fig and me)
- Wool blend felt mushroom plush.
Even though these dolls were made as collectible pieces, they are also made to be strong and sturdy and for play by children who do not mouth their toys. However, there are snaps on the blouse, and sleeper, as well as a safety pin on the diaper. These could all turn into choking hazards or be dangerous to children. If you are planing to give this doll to a child and would like me to change the snaps and safety pin for velcro, please let me know. I will gladly change them.
You can see more photos of these babies in their album.
Each baby’s adoption fee is 390 USDollars plus shipping. Shipping inside Mexico is free with Standard registered mail (It can be upgraded at the customer expense); to the US and PR you have the choice of standard registered mail with tracking for 18 USDollars, or Priority Mail for 30 USDollars. Other countries will need a revised quote. If you would like your doll to be sent with a private courier with full insurance let me know so I can give you an accurate quote. Custom taxes and fees may apply and they are the costumers responsibility.
If you would like to adopt one of them, make sure you comment on this post stating the name of the baby doll: Carola, for the black baby girl, and/or Carmela for the light skin baby girl. Make sure the email you enter is your PayPal one and don’t forget to write down the country the doll will be sent to. If you like them both, make sure you write the names in the priority you would like them. If there is more than one person interested in any of the dolls, I will draw a name. I will take entries for these babies until Tuesday December 14, 2021 at 3pm CST. Remember comments are only visible to me.
Carmela and Carola have found loving homes. Thank you so much for all the love you showed them.
In the event any of these babies do not find a loving home in the time stated above, the doll(s) will be listed in my shop and announced on Facebook and Instagram.
Hope you love my last two babies of 2021. I will be taking a short break from doll making from the 17th of December until January 2. I might start planning to take probably 2 custom orders that I can start to make in January.
So make sure you subscribe to our email list, so you can get notified when new dolls are ready for homes.
Hope you have happy and holidays with the ones you love the most and that the new year brings new adventures, peace, health, and love to your life.
Read you soon.
