It is not seemly, I’m sure, to boast about one’s own projects, but I am hyperventilating over the cuteness of my latest completed craft project: a pocket doll in her own leaf bed.
She was a Waldorf in the Woods craft project a few weeks back, and I just finished her today because she’s my Christmas gift to my niece, Nabi Grace, in Thailand.
I was loving how she was turning out, and then as I started to sew up her little felt cap, I realized I HAVE MY OWN PLANT-DYED FELT! And I ran to my stash and picked out the sweetest shade of nubby pink and cut my first bit of my own plant-dyed felt. The shade of pink of her cap, the green stem, her orange (now I know that colors from osage) wool roving hair peeping through, all combined to make a dear pocket girl.
She was born and looked right at me. I hope my niece likes her because it’s going toÂ be hard for me for me to let her go.
