This is Rosetta , a Bagel Baby doll made by Penguin and Owl Acres. Bagel Baby dolls are sweet little dolls designed to be bonding dolls for babies. What makes it a bonding doll? She is stuffed with clean carded wool, which means she will hold the scents really well, so when she spends a couple nights snuggled up to a parent she will retain their scent and this is really comforting to a little one. Wool also holds body heat and makes for a super comforting doll. The round shape is perfect for little hands to grab and squeeze. Her hat is great for chewing little teethers, as her outter body fabric is made from 100% cotton velour. Rossetta’s face is made from imported cotton interlock and hand embroidered eyes and mouth. Bagel Babies are aprox 5 inches wide by 6.5 inches tall.
Rossetta can come with an optional bell safely secured inside her hat for a sweet little jingly. sound.
Bagel Babies are $20 USD plus exact shipping.

Her tusk has been hand-embroidered and hand-sewn with triple stitching to fasten securely to his head. She is very firmly stuffed with hyper-allergenic polyfil and has safety eyes.

Approx 15″ from tusk to tail and 9″ across.

Due to small parts this toy may not be suitable for children under 3.

Washing – for best results, spot clean air dry.

Woolhalla!

This week, we were lucky enough to interview Natalie, of Woolhalla and Bear Dance Crafts. Not only is she giving us a peek into her world but she has donated one of her creations for a GIVEAWAY!!!

I have to say, Natalie is quite a character. She’s sweet and caring but she also has a fun quirky side that you can sometimes get a glimpse of.

Natalie is well known in the Handmade Community for her timeless creations as Woolhalla and also for her endless patience and consistently stocked supply shop Bear Dance Crafts, where a lot of us Canadian waldorf doll enthusiasts go to stock up on all of the fun little supplies that go into doll making.

11224515_1043726455662125_8061645220493797400_n

It may surprise you that Natalie was once on the sewing naughty list. Back in school she nearly failed sewing class because it was frowned upon to make her own versions of the patterns. As you can see, her rebellion against authority gave her the baseline for the creation of many original patterns, some of which she also sells in her store.

560949_445506088817501_1664047329_n

Natalie lived in Holland for a time and started taking doll making classes there. Suddenly she realized that she had a knack for it and that people were looking to buy more creations from her. This naturally became the beginning of her love affair with handmade toys and dolls, and Woolhalla.

You can tell by looking at many creations that she takes great inspiration from nature and animals. These days she’s also become one of us Pinterest enthusiasts and finds some inspiration there. I imagine that what she creates with that inspiration is less of a fail than it is for some of us. 😉 And you guessed it, her other inspiration is David Bowie. What’s that? You didn’t guess that at all? Me neither, but I love it!

1908277_749854765049297_1891101206_n

I think like many of us crafters, Natalie gathers a lot of her ideas while lying in bed trying to fall asleep. If she wakes up in the morning and is still excited, she will ponder the details while she is getting all of her supply orders shipped out. Then if she manages to find an ounce of spare time she’ll start bringing it to life. Ideally for her, this process would happen in a cozy chair, either outside in the summer or in front of the woodstove in the winter. Like today, doesn’t that sound nice?  mmmm……..

Oh yes, Natalie.  Natalie has three children, two of which are… gasp… teenagers! and still live at home. Since her teenagers are typical, they allow her plenty of time to get things done and only bother her when they want a ride, or want food, which I imagine is often all of the time.

11080608_956536831047755_6490134884842354845_o

We tried to pry some fun stories out of her but she was pretty tight lipped. She alluded to karaoke mishaps, roller derby refereeing and a misspent youth… if any of you manage to get the rest of the dirt, please do fill us in.

  Thanks for answering all our invasive questions, Natalie! We just love getting to know the creator behind the creations! And Natalie has generously offered one of these sweet wool felt squirrel for our giveaway we are hosting over on our Facebook page so head on over!

Quilt by Sassy Southern Mama.  $200USD Shipped in the US (priority). $215 shipped to Canada (regular post). This is a 34.5in×43in child size/lap/couch quilt. The front main fabric is Robert Kaufman fabrics “Classic Horror Films” print from their Cinema Series. The back side of this quilt is an amazing orange Michael Miller fabrics called “Moroccan Lattice.” I also used Aurifil Thread for the free motion quilting in white, and bound the quilt with their red. The inside of this particular quilt is 2 layers of organic cotton flannel in white. Lastly I added an antique green button for detail. This is a pretty heavy quilt for the size because the flannel doesn’t have a lot of loft/fluff, but it’s a dense hefty weight. I have a tall toddler and she has her quilts in this size on her bed, but we also have one on the back of our couch as well. This obviously isn’t going to be a sleeping quilt for an adult, but will be perfect for use in the living room for decor and movie watching.

Brambles & Blossoms – Winston P. Jingle has always been a little odd. From his fluffy rainbow hair to his oversized glasses he never quite fit in. Growing up he never understood why all the other Elves wore matching pants and shirts, or why their parents gave them boring middle names (of course his middle name is completely amazing, being Pickle). At 12″ tall, he is taller than most of the other Elves his age too, and his pointy elf toes point a little bit inwards when he walks. Winston has floppy soft Elfy legs, and a weighted torso, which allows him to get into all sorts of awkward situations. Winston likes to be kind but can be persuaded to be naughty, so he really has to keep an eye on who he surrounds himself with. He would be great at both being a Kindness Elf this Christmas or being a Naughty Elf on a Shelf. Winston is made with cotton knit, and local wool. He is lightly weighted with microfine glass weighting and his hair is woolen blend yarns in rainbow colours.
His adoption fees will be $100USD (approx. $130CDN) plus exact shipping to your location.

This chubby little hedgehog is a whole lot of cute packaged into just over three inches. Although, I think he may be a bit more round than tall, but he was too bashful to let me measure his tummy. He is made from very firmly needle felted wool and his spiny back is made from a special hedgehog fabric made from mohair. This fabric has been carefully hand stitched into place. Henry’s cheeks have been blushed with a beeswax crayon.
Henry is 38$ US plus 10$ shipping within Canada and US , exact shipping will be charged for international.

Easy Heart Bunting

Since the Crafty Bastards are going to be heading up a contest to get some fun kids’ crafts to inspire the video game driven youth of today, I decided to get the ball rolling a little early and introduce a super easy little craft to do with your wee ones.

My girls (4 and 6) are notorious for needing something to do at all times of the day.  I wanted to have a good 30 minutes free in order to get a bit of work done around the house so with a little bit of prep work I came up with this easy craft.

DSC_1383

What you’ll need:

a few pieces of scrapbook paper

scissors

a heart template (I used a cookie cutter)

a pencil

some twine or thin rope/cord

a hole punch

markers/crayons/stickers (optional)

DSC_1372

So just to make it a little easier for them, I turned each piece of paper over and traced hearts onto it.

DSC_1374

Then they were able to cut out each of the hearts themselves and they decided they wanted to decorate them.  At first I was so reluctant because, well, I’ve been on pinterest too many times.  Then I remembered that they’re kids, and to them gaudy frozen decorations are the epitome of fun!  So I let them have at it.  At one point my 4 year old went on a strange tangent where one of her hearts was turned into a rainbow kitty.  Yeah, pretty much…

DSC_1378

So once they were done decorating the hearts, I punched a hole into the top of each side of the heart.  They each got a length of string and were able to thread it onto the hearts in a big mangled clumpy formation.  I managed to fix the 6 year old’s, and to ignore the lack of randomness in the ordering of her hearts.

DSC_1384

But the 4 year old… well… I loved it too much.

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to check out our Facebook page for contest details… coming soon!
