As some of you already might know, both my girls attended a Waldorf school when they were young. One of the things which attracted us to this school system was their attention for an inviting ambiance and the use of natural materials.
When my eldest was four she was introduced to the famous Waldorf dolls and wanted one for herself. Luckily a doll makers course was starting soon after her discovery and there I learned how to make all kind of different cloth dolls. S was so happy with her "Rapunzel" and not so long after that M got one for herself too.
Some years later (in the Fall of 2000) I got the idea to make one for myself. This was the kind of doll I always wanted as a little girl: so soft and pliable. So I made my inner little girl a doll and I named her “Saar” (Sarah). The adult part of me was delighted to have a doll for myself to dress up and I started to make her a wardrobe of her own. This has grown into a hobby of mine which I amuse myself with off and on. After several months of abandonment I picked her up again, freshened up her face with watercolor pencils and made her a knitted dress with crocheted shoes.
Since I like to write about my crafts on this blog too, I thought it might be fun to share this part of me as well
