Meet Eglantine

This beautiful, beautiful doll arrived today!Eglantine by

My very first Waldorf doll!

Eglantine is made by my very special and very dear blogger friend Arlette. Doll is completely sewed by hand and is really piece of art. Clean and firm work from head to toe! I am amazed how wonderfully doll is crafted.

She came wearing soft overall baby PJ’s.DSC_0012-001

Arlette sewed her adorable little dress as well. This dress my little Eglantine can wear when showing off to my friends and family. DSC_0014-001

More about Eglantine’s clothes and how they’re done you can read at Arlette’s blog.

I love this doll!


For a long time I wished having real Waldorf doll. I am not good at machine sewing and wasn’t confident or brave enough to sew one by hand. When Arlette told me and showed me doll she made for me I was so excited. Fell in love with Eglantine at first sight.

Today when the package arrived and when I saw her, I couldn’t stop hugging and cuddling her. She is sooooo beautiful! And I am sooooo happy!

Thank you Arlette for wonderful gift.DSC_0005-001

Can’t wait to make her few more outfits!!!

But before I start making clothes for Eglantine, have to finish editing Maya the Bee pattern. This one is coming in day or two!

    1. Thank you dear Ingrid!
      I am so pleased you like Eglantine. I made crocheted ones just because I am not good at sewing and so much wanted Waldorf doll. There are no words which I can use to describe how tender and cuddly this doll is. I am sure you felt the same holding each of all of your Waldorf babies.
      These dolls are so lovable!
      Hugs sweetie

  2. she is so cute. posted on facebook about how to sew head and hair cap in the right spot. got body, legs, hands all done. just not sure how to sew head on body the right way. oh ya, witch hair do I start with first? thank you debi Date: Tue, 5 May 2015 13:48:57 +0000 To:

    1. Coming to FB ASAP! 😀
      Will send you mail with instructions on how the sewing is done. But once you have head and body done, there will be 18 sts each end. Set the head pointing right direction, and simply sew around using wipe stitch. Don’t forget to add more stuffing to the neck area before closing it completely.
      Talk to you in a little while!

  3. Sweet picture of you with your doll! I love it!
