Lucie - a 16''/42 cm tall Handmade Waldorf Doll
Lucie is a 16'' / 42 cm tall doll, who wants t dress up, like an elf ;-)
She's made of Dutch tricot from "De Witte Engel", in a fair skin colour and she’s filled with clean organic sheep wool.
Her eyes are embroidered with DMC silky thread, in a soft grey color. Her mouth is a simple stitch of embroidery silk.
She has a belly button and a cute butt.
She can sit by herself and stand with a bit of support.
Her hair is crochet of Wild brushable mohair yarn, in natural blonde. I've aded strands of bouclé (curly yarn). The hair has to be kept in teals, braids or buns. It is not suitable to keep it loose.
Lucie will bring her own little Pilou cuddle dolly! The body is wet felted and embroidered with silve thread.
She is wearing:
- Shorts in silver sweat fabric.
-Tights and a long sleeve T-shirt, made of pointelle jersey, in ecru.
-An ecru babycord quilted jacket, with silver cuffs. And a matching silver pierrot collar (not attached).
-A wet felted pixie hat.
-And handmade felted elf shoes, with a matching acorn neckless, made by Vaida Petreikis: https://www.etsy.com/shop/VaidaPetreikis

All MonPilou dolls and doll clothes are designed and handmade by MonPilou.
I have learned to make traditional Waldorf dolls many years ago. Over the years, I have designed my own pattern and found ways to make the dolls of better quality and look more natural. Even though the techniques have changed, my dolls are still traditional Waldorf dolls.
They are made of natural fibres, look simple, have a neutral expression and are made with a lot of love.
My dolls are firmly stuffed, for durability, but not as hard as the dolls, made for collectors. I like my dolls to feel cuddly for young children.
