Waldorf Style Hand-crocheted Dolls

As a little girl, I always loved dolls. I had quite a collection from porcelain dolls to cornhusk dolls. Some of the ones I enjoyed the most were very simple dolls that gave my imagination plenty of room for creative play! My grandmother taught me to crochet years ago, and now I have created a very simple Waldorf-style doll just like the kind I would have loved as child. Since this is my pattern, it is unique and each doll is one of a kind, crocheted with cotton yarn and “huggably” stuffed to the perfect softness! My daughters and I love them! I am selling these dolls locally now for $12 so that I can buy more yarn to make more dolls. Eventually, I would charge more for them, because each takes about three hours of time from start to finish, plus the cost of materials. I can provide pictures of some of the other dolls I have available, but here is an example. (For $16 I can custom make a doll with specific color choices for dress and skin tone. It may take up to one week to complete.) Thanks for looking! Please e-mail me with any questions.
