I couldn’t help but be inspired by Daenarys from the Game of Thrones series, her beauty and character are so compelling! So its no wonder that as I started to pick out yarns and fabrics and to sew this doll together, my hands, on their own accord, worked some magic and produced my own version of her. I hand made every article of the doll and her clothing and eggs, and she took over 20+ hours to complete, many more hours to dream and plan!
She is a soft doll handcrafted in the waldorf tradition. All materials used in her production are deliberately chosen of the highest quality, both for feel (you really can feel a difference in the fabrics and yarns, they have much more life to them and are softer and finer), as well as durability She is made with european tricot cotton knit, stuffed with pure clean sheep wool, double stitched in body and limbs, and has hand sewn attachments. Her hair has been crocheted and each strand individually applied, and is made of over 6 ounces of handspun merino wool. Her features are hand embroidered from french thread. Her body is softly but firmly stuffed, giving her a slightly squishy and cuddly feel! Her wool stuffing brings warmth with touch, like she is giving a hug in return!
She comes wearing her blue wrap style dress made from Japanese double gauze, a camel coloured linen underskirt, and dark grey linen pants. Her high boots are crochet from deluxe Madeleine Tosh wool, the colour is an amazing mix of copper and steel and leather! Her pendant is hand made from antler tip. Her shawl was tea-dyed by me and made from a repurposed pashmena scarf. She comes with 3 crochet dragon eggs made from alpaca-wool blend, as well as a ‘wooden’ fabric covered chest (currently not shown in photos).
Daenarys is recommended ideally for a collector since she was designed with Game of Thrones fans in mind, however she would also be suitable for a girl over the age of 5, due to the small buttons, delicate fabric, and the hand sewn nature of its production. These dolls are meant to be played with, but gentleness and love are recommended!
