::June Windfall Dolls Giveaway::Meet Jemma


::::

Each month leading up to our regular Seasonal Large Waldorf Doll giveaway as promised...we will be sewing up a few smaller dolls for giving away. This includes not only our Lillipals variety of dolls, but our Baby Dolls, our Swaddle babies,newborn babies, our Wee Ones, and any other small dolls that we come up with.

A bit of a tide-me-over for all of our readers.

Each monthly small doll's name will be inspired by the month in which they were created.

::::

As our June giveaway babe, we have the adorable Jemma ...a Swaddle babe.

:::::::::::

Jemma:: A jewel or gem.






::the details::
 Jemma is entirely handmade by us using our swaddle baby pattern. She is a petite 10 inches tall.  She has  a  uber soft flannel swaddling blanket wrapping her body as well as a soft flowery touque.    We have knotted the hat at the top, but it is easily un-knotted.  

Jemma was a first in a few ways.  She is a bit pudgier that our past swaddle babies.  I was just drawn to adding more and more fluff to make those yummy cheeks of hers full.  She is also the first swaddle baby that we have given eyes to.   We decided on simple slits, since newborns are almost always in a sleepy dreamy state.
::::::::::::
If you are interested in having Jemma join your family, please let us know what it is that you love about her and how you will make her a part of your family.  
Also, please become a follower of this blog and leave a comment at the end of this post. The giveaway will be open for one week.  We will randomly choose a winner at night on July 7th and we will contact the winner via email.

It saddens us to mention this, but we just want to be clear.  Please do not comment if you are planning on selling this doll.  She is meant to go to a family who will appreciate her.  It would break our hearts if she was given to someone with poor intentions.

  2. She is delicious! My three year old would tuck her up in soft quilts and rock her in her rocking cradle. Then she would get her up and carry her baby everywhere. We would make a baby sling so she could carry her!!

  14. She is ever so lovely! I love the fact that she's just the right size for my tiny three-year-old to hold. I'm expecting a new addition to our family and Jemma would be most welcome to join us in our adventure.

  15. I believe she is content and would be willing to lay in your arms cuddling for hours and I love that about her. I would love to win her because I have a grandmother who is 91 and losing her sight and I believe she might help her be content as she sits and holds her. I would hope that Jemma would give her something in the world to hold onto.

    Thank you for reading.

  25. I would LOVE to win this doll for my daughter. She has been so influenced this summer by other children with trendy toy store items and I am working hard to refocus her and put simple beauty (waldorf) in her life that she can love for a lifetime. rebecca.sekelsky@yahoo.com

  26. How appropriate that this one has the name Jemma, as she appears to be a little jewel! My Callie is all about the "bebe" - giving her bebes hugs and keeping them close as she goes through her day. Jemma would be well loved if she joined our family. lizaahern at gmail dot com.
