Holiday Doll Contest

December 9, 2011

Visit the Sewfunky FaceBook Page to find out about our new Holiday Contest!

Sewfunky Waldorf Dolls – Find Yours!
It’s hard for me to beleive I made all of these dolls!  Some of them never got photographed because it was such a rush to get them out the door.
  Some that belonged to my children or nieces and nephews aren’t in this collage either. 
Do you see a doll that belongs to your family?

~*~ Welcome ~*~

 I have been working on this super sweet Waldorf Inspired Forest Pixie this week.

She is a gift from a Mama to welcome her first daughter due this month, so exciting!

She has golden skin, green eyes and freckles.  Her hair is a blend of wool/silk in beautiful colours and textures.  She is wearing a calico pinafore and hemp bloomers with hand knit booties. 

A sneak peek of some of the ready to go dolls that I will be posting up for sale tonight!

Sweet Waldorf Inspired Pixies!

Dolly Making

September 12, 2011

This is a sweet Waldorf Pixie Doll I finished this week!

She has beautiful Fair Trade Hand Spun hair in 100% wool with golden skin and blue eyes.  She’s wearing a handknit wool dress and booties made with hand-dyed wool with sweet sage green hemp pants.  She is carrying her matching pixie baby in a Sewfunky PandaWrap made with silky soft bamboo jersey.

So many holiday dolls on my to-do list once fall arrives then it’s time to cozy up on the couch with my hand work basket in the evening!

Baby Molly Auction

January 31, 2011

Please take a few minutes to visit the amazing Fundraiser Auction for Molly Campbell held by the kind-hearted Christina at Bamboletta Dolls

You will have the option of bidding on many beautiful handmade items or donating directly with all proceeds to be give to the Baby Molly Trust.

Molly was diagnosed with leukemia at one month old just before Christmas.  She is the youngest of five children for the Campbell family.

I know all too well of the struggles this family is facing right now.  It is the exact same type of leukemia that my sister Leslie so bravely battled.

When I think of how much it helped all of us, to know people were supporting her fight, giving what they could to help us through, it made the world of difference.  To have a meal, a place to stay, childcare, a ride helped so much to enable my family to be with my sister as much as possible.  The financial worry is immense in a time like this and your auction donation will help them so much!

I was honoured to donate something I made in my sister’s memory to help out this family.  If you would like to donate directly you can here, or you can bid on the many items up for auction.

Some of the many things available are :

 Beautiful Waldorf Dolls made by the talented Bamboletta Team :

Heart for Molly

Many hand-knit with love items :

Owl Doll Hat - (MF1)

Handmade clothing for both dolls and children :

Wool Felt Fairy Dress - by Refresh (AL1)

Hand crafted Wooden Toys :

Wooden Sewing Machine - Wood Clinic

Matching Mama & Child Organic Slings

New Baby Set! by Sew Funky!

and SO much more.

Update:

Bamboletta and friends raised over $23,000 for the Campbell Family!

These are the dolls I made for the holiday season!  I didn’t realize there were so many until I went looking for pictures 😉  They were all made in November and December and the last one wasn’t finished until 4pm on Christmas Eve!  I’m looking forward to a little doll making break this week as I spend time with my family and tidy up my sewing studio!  It has been a crazy fall-winter with lots of work, chaos, craft shows, renovation and challenging times.  I’m looking forward to a peaceful January and hopefully a holiday nap!

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to you all!

Handspun Wool

Isn’t her hair amazing?  This handspun wool was sent in by the fibre artist behind The Purl of Knitting to create a custom doll for her daughter’s birthday.  I love how it turned out!

Happy Fall Everyone!

Summer is over already!

September 9, 2010

Well I dropped the ball on blogging this summer, so busy with a full house and a full plate.

Over the summer I made some dolls….

A Waldorf Pixie Doll for a little girl’s birthday ❤  She has beautiful fair trade Manos hair, a butterfly dress and hemp pants with cotton knits booties!

 

A birthday doll with silk hair and a tutu went off to a special girl. 

My friend and I made a doll together for her daughter’s birthday gift!

Making silk slings for new babies!  Silk is sooo beautiful!

I took my girl canoeing on the river, she had so much fun! 

I met lots of new babies and wonderful people over the summer.  I also recieved so many lovely babywearing pictures from amazing friends and customers!  I made a LOT of slings this summer and added two new stores to our retailer list.  Feeling so blessed to be working with so many amazing women promoting natural parenting!

 

We got in some beautiful fairy post cards for the website

And now on to fall… will be posting more soon!
