Somewhere in beautiful Monterey, California, hails Imogen’s Garden Here you will find, among other goodies, soft Waldorf-inspired dolls, children’s clothes and PDF patterns.
“I began crafting at an early age and come from a long line of potters, carpenters, and, well, crafters…I remember vividly watching my parents, grandparents and uncles create things with their hands and still own many of their pieces. Having ownership of something they made from scratch is very like holding a tangible piece of them…and makes my heart very happy….All of our clothing is made with the comfort of your child in mind. One or more of my children or godchildren has tested each style. If a garment doesn’t pass the kid test, I don’t sell it. …Dolls are double or (in some cases) triple stitched for safety and longevity of play. Here is her Anya PDF pattern for Eco-Friendly Rag Matryoshka.
