Walnut Baby!



Each year when the walnuts in our garden are falling from the trees I feel inspired to make some Wee Walnut Baby Dolls. And each year I completely underestimate the amount of time I need to make those little fellows, since they are almost entirely sew by hand. Many tiny stitches and many hours of work and just a small handful of dolls at the end. They are all made from organic lambs wool and organic cotton velvet. Their tiny wigs are hand crochet from Mohair yarn and their tiny faces are hand embroidered from organic cotton thread. I made ten Walnut Babies this year and they are available here.
