WIP Wednesday ~ a new doll and more wooden toys

Here are a few of the toys I have been working on over the past week when the kids are in bed :-). My stock of handmade Christmas presents for our Handmade Holiday is growing!

This little Waldorf inspired doll has her under things made, but she still needs a dress! (I put the pint jar in the picture for size comparison...) I was going to give her purple or black eyes, but Rodrigo thought she should have aqua colored eyes to match some tiny aqua colored highlights in her woolly hair. I just love her huge ponytails with her big white bows.  I hadn't really planned on making Claire another baby doll... but once I had made her tiny head I couldn't stop myself, it just felt right to make her! Maybe I'll find a new home for her, but she is really cute... hmm...

Her lacy undies!

Playing hide-n-seek!

Mama and Baby Skunks... aren't they adorable!!! So far they are my very favorite wooden animal I've made! I used a wood burner to outline the details then I painted them with water based non toxic paints.

 A trio of hedgehogs, with wood burnt details and lightly painted. All of my wooden toys are sealed with a handmade organic beeswax wood sealer, made from local beeswax and organic cold pressed coconut oil.

 Four friendly snakes...

I have lots more wooden toys drawn up and ready to make... I am having such a great time doing this! I think everyone on my list just might need little wooden toys or Waldorf dolls for Christmas, don't you?


  1. You are making such cute things! I especially like the dolly underwear. I made some things for Rohan's birthday and had a lot of fun doing it. I'm thinking a handmade Christmas will be just as much fun.

  2. Sarah, it is so much fun, isn't it? I can't wait to see what you made for Rohan. Are you planning on making handmade Christmas presents as well?

  3. Oh those hedgehogs are adorable. You could start your own woodland forest!

  4. so beautiful....I love them all..esp the sweet little bloomers on the doll...maybe youd be interested in a swap sometime? xox

  5. Hmmm... a swap sounds like fun! Let me know what you'd be interested in swaping...
