Did you have a doll when you were a little girl? One you vividly remember playing with, caring for, dressing up and at times being rough with?
I will never forget my yellow haired, blue eyed Cabbage Patch Doll. I was not always nice to her though. I drew on her, I tossed her around with my brothers, I loved her hard.
I’ve forgotten her name but the memories are still there. I would love for my children to have a doll they will love forever. A doll that they will carry around in their mini-babycarriers and put on doll cloth diapers! Way better than my old Xavier-tattooed-bum-Made-in-China doll would be one made by the loving hands of a mother in her home.
I am very excited to be able to host a giveaway for an Abigailshim Waldorf Doll!! Not only is “Anne” gorgeous but she’s handmade! Her stuffing is 100 % wool, as is her hair, her skin is soft knit cotton. She is 18″ tall, with hand embroidered eyes. Abigail then sews in the hair one strand at a time.
Let me introduce you to the talented wahm who creates these small masterpieces.
“My name is Abigail. I am a wife to the best husband in the world. I am the stay at home mom of 5 amazing children the Lord has blessed me with.
I have been saved for about five years, I am so thankful for God’s mercy and grace that I so very much need.
Most of my time is spent with my family. If you want to know about me, then you have to know about them. They are my life, and we have all sorts of things going on at our house daily. We home school, have family bible time, we all read different books to each other at different times.
My husband and I developed this love for farming, and this past year we bought our home, planted lots of various fruit trees, and started raising chickens, ducks and two turkeys. We also enjoy archery, roller skating and playing WOW.
At church they refer to me as the mom with the boys always in capes. We are playful.
But my ME time, that is when I sew. I started sewing when I was thirteen. My father and aunt got me started and I just enjoyed it so much I taught myself over the years through trial and error, other peoples tips and knowledge, a few books and the deaths of many a seam ripper.
I owe a lot of gratitude to other stay at home mommies and their DIY blogs. I have learned so much from them. I have worked on many things ranging from jeans for my husband to fabric-ated weapons.
In the last couple years I began making dolls for the little girls in my family. I loved how each doll was in some way like each girl it was made for. They all loved the dolls very much. Then while searching for ideas I came across Waldorf style dolls and I knew if I was going to make dolls, these were the ones i wanted to make. As I make each one it isn’t just creepy body parts like my husband teases . It is a new character, personality, a unique baby doll someone is going to love as much as i love them.”
