Waldorf Doll -- Storyteller Puppet

Okay the sideways photos are an issue.  I took these photos from my camera phone and I think that is the problem.  The photos are not sideways on Etsy so it could be a problem with the website.  I'm so sorry.  The doll is 10" tall and the sleeves are empty for your index finger and thumb for puppeteering.  The cape, hat and leggings are made of a recycled angora/lambswool sweater which was felted in the washing machine.  The doll skin is light brown and her hair is dark brown mohair boucle which makes for soft curls.

I have had some customers tell me that they take the storyteller out only at bedtime, which makes it very much fun for young children to go to bed at night.

The doll is for sale on my Etsy website. I'm giving Etsy a try.  Oh, and see how much better the lighting is on these photos?  They were taken in outdoor lighting on a natural dye rainbow silk.

Doll With Indigo Dyed Bamboo Velour Body

I can't figure out how to turn the other photo around so you can see it better (sorry).  Still kinda new at this.  Anyway, this 10" tall doll was made in the traditional Waldorf fashion only the body is made from indigo dyed bamboo velour (organic).  The fabric is so soft and snuggly, it is almost like silk velvet.  The wig is crocheted and brushed up to look more baby-like.  The rainbow silk in the background was also dyed with natural ingredients.  I have also learned (from Etsy) that natural lighting is best, as you will see from my next blog.  This doll is for sale on Etsy at
