Inspired by Ena I made a new kind of doll this week. A Snuggle Baby. . It is my most simple doll with only a little head and 2 hands, the body has no form or stuffing making it really easy to grab and snuggle for little people who are only just discovering their hands.
It is made of the softest, loveliest rainbow striped jersey. The hat has a wee knot and the hands are made of 2 tight little knots of sheep's' wool covered with cotton interlock. These wee knots are brilliant for chewing on to soothe sore little gums. The head is made in the traditional waldorf style, of rolled sheep's wool covered with cotton interlock and hand embroidered with little eyes and a simple mouth. The cheeks are blushed with a little red wax.
Ena loves her little snuggle baby and I am so delighted with it I am making more to sell in the shop and to celebrate that I am giving one away over on my Under Rainbows facebook page.
