Welcome! Sit down, peruse these pages, and indulge in the stories my dolls arouse within your imagination...

Once Upon A Doll began with my own love of dolls, especially hand made. My kids and I collect, play with, and love our dolls, and eventually I began to make dolls of my own. Although my dolls are based upon the principles of Waldorf doll making--natural and sustainably harvested materials (like wool stuffing and cotton interlock), hand spun and dyed wool yarns for hair, hand made doll clothes, 100% wool felt for shoes--my dolls cannot be called strictly Waldorf (more Waldorf-esque), as they have definite personalities, larger & more expressive eyes, and playful mouths. Once Upon A Doll features enchanted dolls made in the Waldorf tradition with a storybook theme for that special child in your life or the discriminating collector of handmade dolls.

Two MORE Sneak Peeks...

And so two more little faces join our group of four.

The first little girl has blond hair and wants to dress up as a VERY popular fairy for Halloween...

 I'm sure you have no problem guessing her chosen Halloween costume. She has a blond hair, blue eyes, and even a little smirk just like the mischievous pixie she so admires...

And for our last little gal, we have the doll of my own dreams.

I have always loved pumpkins and Jack-o-lanterns, but the only Waldorf dolls I have seen with this theme are "normal" dolls dressed as pumpkins. I decided to break with tradition, and actually make a little doll with all my favorite things....


Green Jack-o-lantern eyes seem to GLOW when outlined with candlelight orange embroidery floss...and of course she must have a sequined pumpkin outfit and full bobbed hair in pumpkin patch colors!

Four little faces,
Happy as can be.
Waiting for their arms and hair
So they may play with thee!

Have a wonderful Monday!
Thanks for checking in on our progress,
Once Upon A Doll
