Spring is in the air and as I went out into the garden I saw this funny looking bud in the camellia bush:
As the sun streamed down and warmed it up the little bud opened and out peeked the tiniest wee bud baby.
She crawled out and sat upon a flower to warm away the winter chills :-)
My dolls seem to be getting smaller and smaller lol, but there is something so fun about making such dinky wee things. Benny has adopted the baby from the doll house family I made for them at Christmas. He named him Benjamin and sleeps with him every night. Rebe has also asked me to make her such a tiny doll as well, which I'm sure I'll get around to soon.
She is made with a tiny wire skeleton so is pose-able. Her head is made in the traditional waldorf style with embroidered eyes and mouth and little red blushed cheeks. She has a soft headful of brown mohair under her wee cotton pointed cap. The pod is knitted in matching green and closes at the top with a little wooden button.
