There are so many gorgeous Waldorf dolls out there. All that you have to do is do a search through Etsy for "Waldorf doll" and you are inundated with thousand and thousands of hits. And they are all stunning and unique and precious. SO many beautifully crafted dolls by some unbelievably gifted artists.
We can't run with those BIG DOGS and to be honest, we have no interest in doing so.
In truth, we love the thought of Mamas creating for their little ones. That is why we spent hours creating our tutorials. We have faith in handmade and in the hands that make them. We have faith in mothers as crafters. There truly is nothing quite so wonderful as seeing a doll that you have stitched and outfitted come to life before your own eyes.
It brings a feeling of old school, of care and love and time. We happen to really like that.
Our dolls are inspired, of course. You can't make a Waldorf Inspired Doll without certain characteristics, but I assure you that our tutorials and patterns for our dolls and clothes are authentic to us. They are ours and ours alone.
We share these dolls, clothing and our series of tutorials not to let some secret out of a bag or to step on any toes of those doll artists. We just want to inspire and make it possible for other Mama's to make a doll for their little ones in case that they are unable to afford one of those beautiful dolls created by the many artists out there.
We offer our Windfall dolls as a giveaway ~ as a gift to this community.
Because every wee one deserves to have a beautiful doll to snuggle.
Here is the link to the store... Adirondack Patterns on Etsy. And if you can't afford the prices, get in touch with me. I bet we could work something out. ;)
