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.

Meet Punkie and her little Amigurumi Pumpkin Pie

Punkie is a handmade doll in the Waldorf style by Once Upon A Doll...she loves everything about autumn and especially pumpkin pie! 

Punkie's incredibly lush head of hair is a mix of buttery soft hand spun art yarns by Yarn Rescue and Rainbow Twist Shop in shimmering shades of pinks and orange with whipped cream ivory to accent. She wears an adorable upcycled shirt and skirt by Nanerjoy featuring a smiling slice of pumpkin pie that reads "Cutie Pie". 

Her little friend is a hand crocheted amigurumi pumpkin pie (smiling with safety eyes and whipped cream on top).

Punkie stands 12 inches tall and sits easily...and her pumpkin orange shoes were handmade for her of 100% wool with contrast pink floss stitching. She is intended for children over 3 who no longer put things in their mouths, as her hair and the buttons on her shoes can be choking hazards.

Punkie cannot wait to play with in the fall leaves and celebrate all the autumn celebrations with your children (or you)!
Punkie and her pumpkin pie will be available this coming Monday, October 7th, at 7pm eastern time. Here's the link to her listing:  


I'll have a second doll listed with Punkie...stay tuned to see photos of her.
