Category Archives: 100% Wool

My Baby Dolls

Here they are: a little collection or “Waldorf” inspired baby dolls.

As much as I could I used the sewing machine for the  stitches along the material. But everything else was done by hand of course. The stuffing is naturally 100% wool, it feels and smells better! Wool is my favourite for anything. Aren’t they cute all together.  They are so much quicker to make than a shaped doll, and so much fun to make! I can’t wait to find the time to make some more… But what colours, there are so many to choose from?

Where are these ones going to next?

Maths game

Today we just finished the maths game!

My little one layed out the rules and instructions for the game, I added my ideas. And we worked together on the making.

We used simple natural materials of course, cotton and my inevitable favourite: wool. This involved measuring, counting, sewing, wet felting, dry-felting and assembling. The only down side was for the making of the cards: we had to use the convenient modern world’s technology: the computer, the printer and the laminator. ;-(

Of course the decoration side of this project is non exhaustive and never ending!! I added some trees again this morning and also made some chance cards. All the pockets aren’t used, which means we have room for more “counters”/ players. I also need to add some buttons for carrying without dropping the cards or dies.

My children have already had a game. They had a ball!!! It has been a long time since ” petite chérie” laughed so loudly with all her might, freely and excitedly! You know that laugh that comes down from deep down the tummy somewhere from the rib cage…

We looooove maths in our family, always have  and always will. Why? because it doesn’t matter what language you do maths in:  2+2 always = 4! lol

Gnome’s Caves

Christina Lane, a wonderful person, as well as an incredible artist shared her talent with us. This resulted in making those little gnome’s caves.

100% wool, hand made.
