Daria makes Waldorf style dolls like me. She also writes posts for the NaturalKids Team on this blog, right here. Maybe you have read her recent post about the importance of doll play. When asked for an image of her hands she sent me a picture of her hands sewing a button on a doll sweater. Unfortunately the photo was a tad too small, and I couldn’t figure out how to make it bigger. Still I love it so much I wanted to include it in this post.
All of Daria’s dolls are dressed perfectly. She takes great pride in each little detail. I so want a grey sweater like the one she is finishing for a doll in this picture. It looks warm and comfy and oh so cuddly – just like her dolls…I wish the sweaters came in my size.
Besides her beautiful dolls, Daria makes a whole range of items for infants. When I was pregnant with my first child I looked desperately for a sleep sack. They sell these in everywhere in my home country in Germany, but they are impossible to find where I live now in the US. Sleeping sacks are perfect for little babies because you don’t have to worry about your child getting cold toesies or suffocating under a heavy blanket. Baby stays warm and you can get rest not worrying… Luckily my family from Germany mailed me a number of sleep sacks. You do need at least two of them in case one gets wet! But since Daria is right here in the US you don’t need a relative in Europe. You can order one of those cool sleeping bags made of organic fibers – right here in the US. Daria’s shop NobbyOrganics is stocked with wonderful organic sleep sacks, blankets, and of course her sweet dolls. If you are looking to buy a cool gift for the next baby shower, don’t forget to check out her shop first! You can rest assured that each detail is perfect!
In this picture Daria is doing a blanket stitch around an elephant applique.
