I’ve been holding out on you. I’ve been wanting to share, but also wanting to get everything finished before I did. Last weekend I went to a doll making workshop at our local Steiner school. Unsurprisingly, we made Steiner dolls. It was a long process (although strangely meditative), and I didn’t get everything finished on the day.
She’s all finished now, albeit somewhat naked. Many who make Steiner dolls make them in the likeness of the child they’re made for. Elena already has Harriet, however, so I decided to get creative with this little one. I think the pink/purple hair is kind of sweet.
I think she needs some clothes!
If you’re in Canberra and you’re interested in a Steiner/Waldorf doll making class I’d recommend contacting the Orana school office. Alternatively, send me a message and I’ll send you the lovely teacher’s contact details.
Elena is very fond of Poppy, but wasn’t in the mood for the camera today. This was as close as I got to a good photo of Elena and Poppy. You can see what sort of day I had. Thank goodness Alex decided to come home a little early.
