Playsilks!

I am “patiently” waiting for my order of white silks…. so I can magically turn them into an amazing toy that explodes with a child’s imagination!

For anyone wondering what a playsilk is: It is ANYTHING a child can imagine!!

They transform from a simple colourful silk into a magicians cape, or a princesses gown for the ball. They are a sling for a broken arm, or a pirates bandana. They become the ocean, the earth, the trees or the sky. They are a hidden hideaway on a island paradise. They are fire from a fire breathing dragon or a streaming rainbow. The possibilities are as limitless as a childs imagination!

Look for these playsilks in lots of fun colours – coming VERY soon to my etsy shop as well as the craft fairs and market stalls this spring!

Poppa!

I asked my 3 year old little boy to name this doll and I think he did a pretty good job! I am going to be making a few more of these little sweeties. I am really happy with it.

She is nice and small (about 8 inches) and is PERFECT for kids of any age.

I have been experimenting with different sizes lately. And have decided I really like the small dolls. There is something so sweet and magical about them. It dosn’t hurt that everytime I make a small dolly my daughter goes wild!!

You can see her listing her: http://www.etsy.com/listing/83863952/meet-poppa-an-8-inch-sweet-treats

Meet CLEO!

 
Meet Cleo!! She is an approx 15 inch tall “Kids of the King” Waldorf Inspired Doll.

She is wearing a kimono inspired wrap style shirt made out of some beautiful vintage cotton (from my grandmother!) and a brown ribbon tie. She has cotton pants and some really cool stretch cotton fringed boots/slippers.

She has a beautiful head of hair that is a mix of handspun blonde with sparkles, browns and oranges. When it is down, it hits below her shoulders and it is very FULL!! She has two sparkled gold hair clips. Her hair is in the crochet cap style which allows for many different hairstyles, and is sewn on so that it will stand the test of little hands tugging.

Her eyes are hand embroidered in a lovely shade of green and she has a nice little smile.

She is great to squeeze and hug because of her softer body. She has nice lean and long arms which make her quite easy to dress and play with.

She has been handformed and stuffed with love and 100% LOCAL Cowichan Valley wool that I collected, cleaned and carded myself. She is covered with reclaimed 100% cotton.

She has been put through the hug test and passed with flying colours! She will make a wonderful friend!

Please not – not intended for children under the age of 3. Does contain small part

Aspen

Here is another Doll RTG into the arms of a little girl near you! This dolly has been a real work in progress. I think it is amazing how they totally take on thier own personalities. I started her a while ago thinking that she would be a “Little Red Riding Hood” themed doll (which I even had a post about here!) but she never seemed quite right, if you look at the before and after pics she really seems like a new doll! I actually opened her up the other day a gave her more stuffing so she is quite a bit firmer… and “portly”. Then I added a few freckles and so blushing on her cheeks. As for her outfit! WOW! LOVE LOVE LOVE! I had a vest that I asked my TALENTED mom to make a while ago and it has been sitting and waiting for the perfect doll. I feel like this is a doll version of me! It is so hard to let her go (I feel this way EVERY single time I make a doll – I dont know how everyone does it!) But there are only so many dolls my daughter can play with! So HERE SHE IS!

California Dreaming

I cannot get this song out of my head! 

California Dreaming

all the leaves are brown
and the sky is grey
I've been for a walk
on a winter's day

I'd be safe and warm
if I was in L.A
California Dreamin'
on such a winter's day

stopped into a church
I passed along the way
well, I got down on my knees
and I pretend to pray

you know the preacher likes the cold
he knows I'm gonna stay
California Dreamin'
on such a winter's day

all the leaves are brown
and the sky is grey
I've been for a walk
on a winter's day

if I didn't tell her
I could leave today
California Dreamin'
on such a winter's day x3

And it is the inspiration to my latest Kids of the King 
doll "Sunny" who will be available as soon as this 
postal strike it over!!!
