Summer
Summer is a rare sunlight in the gray winter days. She is like a fine butterfly flattering around, in a sunny warm summer day. Her beautiful hair is made with Teeswater Locks in several shades of pink. Her skin has a beautiful peach color, still has the healthy summer light. I think the hazelnut brown fits perfectly for her eye color, fitting her a warm, soft and friendly nature. Her head and torso are completely needle felted. Her body is constructed in a unique way that she can turn her head...
Momo
Momo is a 35 cm / 14" tall waldorf inspired art doll. Her hair is made with beautiful Alpaca locks in their natural black color. I used high quality Swiss doll making fabric for her skin. Her eyes are embroidered. I blushed her face with bees wax crayons. Her head and complete body are needle felted. The neck is built with a special technique unique to my dolls, so that she can bend it, as well as turn it towards the sides. She has articulated sweet bum and dimples on her back. She wears an...
My kids started to ask me already, how long they have to sleep until Christmas. Thus, I thought I might start making couple of dolls for the children, who might have a doll on their wish list for Santa. He surely would appreciate some help. You know, over 65 years and a bit too weak for the sweets, and Covid... All makes it a little harder for him this year. But luckily, he has us: his helpers all over the world :) I created a new pattern for a little bit smaller doll, representing a younger...
A little view into my doll maker's life The first picture shows the office corner of my in total 10 square meter working room. Making the boring work like taxes, writing invoices etc... are all been done here. That's why I created a little sacred place with things that make me happy. Also the dolls I make, wait here until they travel to their new homes. On the one hand, I love to have them for me as long as it takes, on the other it makes me somehow sad seeing them waiting too long. Being a...

She is 38 cm tall, her head and torso are needle felted. Her hair are made with very soft alpaca locks. She has embroidered blue gray eyes. She can turn her head, while bending her neck due to a special construction I developed for my dolls. She comes with several pieces of outfit. A beautiful blue dress, made with Japanese cotton and tulle, crocheted wool shoes and wool socks. In addition she has a hand knitted dress and socks from mohair silk mix. A second set of dress and leggings in dark...
Recently, I was chatting with one of my doll making friends Ildiko through skype. I am very grateful for my friends, I got to meet in the last waldorf doll retreat in Holland. As usual, we both had doll in the hand on which we were working at that moment. She made a lovely girl with two tiny dolls accompanying her. (I love to have the priority of seeing dolls before they are made public ;) )I had also for a long time in mind making a tiny doll, since I saw a beautiful video tutorial by Inneke...
Arwen by Loulabee Dolls
Arwen is a 35 cm /14" tall waldorf inspired, natural fibres art doll. Her head and torso are needle felted.

Her hair is made with long, deep brown wenseydale locks. She wears a beautiful dress with a double circle skirt, supported with an underskirt and a petticoat. She has a gray-green cashmere poncho and pair...
Elinor
I have been planning to make Elinor nearly for two years now. I met the lovely daughter of a friend back then. Elinor, that lovely, funny, wild child, with her nearly white blond hair, with a bit too long fringes falling onto her big blue eyes, running in their garden with her dog, both completely wet because of the pouring rain. My Elinor turned out to be a calmer beauty at the end, but still have a touch of the real Elinor. May be she will look like my Elinor, when she is older. Who knows So...
I actually wanted to make one art doll in month this year. So was it planned. Yet it seems I am far behind that aim. This is the Covid-19 effect on my doll making. Considering how hard it hit several other, I don't want to complain about it at all. So accepted the deceleration in my life and enjoying it as it is. Mid March the lock down started here. The schools, kindergartens, shops, cafes, restaurants, not to mention all cultural activities were affected. We decided to leave to our holiday...
This Easter, my son got a lovely book from his Grandma. The book is about a little penguin, whose greatest dream was flying. It believed when it grows up, his wings would be big enough that he could fly. Although all other penguins laughed at him, he didn't give up exercising and trying everyday. At the end of the story he found an old plane and flew with it. While I was reading the story to my son I remembered my first fly with such a small plane, like the one in the story nearly twenty years...
