Meet Allietta. I made this little girl as a friend for my little girl. I made her several years ago.
She was my first attempt at a "Waldorf" doll. She is made of cotton tricot and stuffed with wool.
I'm studying her, because I am feeling the desire to make some more little tikes like her. I'm looking at her to see the areas I want to improve on.
She's so adorable. But let's face it. She has some issues. Her hands splay out to the side and her feet are just little squishy pads. I think I can improve on that.
Some of the thread shaping her cheeks must have snapped as you can see a little bump of thread under the "skin" on her face. It looks like a little nose, although I did not give her a nose originally.
And her hair has always been a little unkempt. Mohair is like that, but after several years sleeping in the bed of a real living girl, she's looking a bit messy.
But she's just still so sweet. Since I've had her out studying her, I decided to knit her a sweater.
She sat so sweetly next to me on the sofa as I knitted it. I think she likes it.
I'm looking forward to making some friends for her this spring. In other news, I sold the piggy in my etsy shop. He's going to be living down south. He'll like that. It's been so frigid cold and snowy here.
I have two more pigs waiting for finishing touches that may be listed soon. Or they may want to stick around and play with Allietta. We'll see.
