You may already be familiar with the range of handmade dolls clothes we offer at Little Sparrow, but if you’re interested in something you can make yourself or a specific outfit you must pick up a copy of “Dress up Your Dolls” by Lise Nymark.
Playing dress up is such a fun time for children, and with the fun outfits made from “Dress up Your Dolls” they will have so many options to mix and match clothes to suit every occasion. All of the essentials are covered: dresses, pants, jumpers, hats, scarves, hair bands, and even shoes. The patterns, which are ideal for 30, 38, or 45cm dolls (12″, 15″ and 18″), can be easily combined and modified for customization and variety. The 90 patterns offer 33 complete outfits and includes everything from princess dresses and a safari outfit to winter wear and pirate costumes. Needle and yarn conversion charts are also included.
Its almost that time of year again! We are now taking custom doll orders for Christmas! There is nothing more satisfying than giving a doll that has been hand made. They are played with for many years and even as they grow up their little dolls still hold a dear place in their hearts and their bedrooms. To place an order, click here.
Steiner Dolls (in Europe more commonly known as Waldorf Dolls) are made from sheep’s wool and cotton fabric. A unique inner head gives form, but not too much detail to the face allowing the child to “be in” their moment. The origins of this style of doll come from a strong European tradition of doll making and has been developed over time by parents making dolls for their children. These simple toys, made from natural materials, are recognized as being of great importance for the wholesome development of young children. Nurturing is one of the most important human qualities and for the child to be able to nurture their own little doll is a great gift.
