Violet

Oh little Violet, has any doll had such a vivid imagination as this little one? Violet spends her days inside, traipsing around the house with her little crown, demanding cuddles and treats like a Queen! Her costume bin is positively overFLOWING with dresses and skirts and hats, relics from her grandmother’s attic as well as an overabundance of costumes from birthdays parties and gifts from well meaning aunts. One minutes she wears her crown and is a princess of the french courts, the next minute she has her tutu  and is a ballerina as she pirouettes around the kitchen. And oh! the stories! How elaborate they can be, as she stares out her window and ponders who her next character will be, what this person will be like and how they lived… This little one will definitely enjoy drama class one day, and historical novels I imagine…Violet-10

Violet-13 Violet-11 Violet-14 Violet-16 Violet-8 Violet-7 Violet-6 Violet-5 Violet-4 Violet-3 Violet is a 14″ waldorf style / fibre art doll. She is a soft doll handcrafted in the waldorf tradition. She is made with european tricot cotton knit, stuffed with pure clean locally sourced and processed sheep wool, double stitched in body and limbs, and has hand sewn attachments. Her hair is made from the curly and dark wensleydale locks that I wefted and crocheted into a cap. Her features (dark eyes and little smiling mouth) 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! Her cheeks are brushed with tinted beeswax.

Her outfit is made of a beautiful pale plink/purple printed cotton gauze from Japan, which has plum and cream flowers and swirls. The dress is raglan style and has an elastic top with three layers of ruffles on the skirt. She has an underskirt made of ruffled lace with closes with a bow, which can be worn over her dress as though it was a tutu. She also has pantaloons made of white cotton, and comes with crochet shoes made of the highest quality super wash wool, and a crochet peter pan collar. Of course every princess needs a crown, Violet’s is crocheted and made from wool. If you would like Violet to regale you with her stories and spark your own imagination, please visit her listing in my Etsy shop. Thank you for taking a few minutes to get to know her!
