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 Russet and Wolfie

Russet's little friend, Little Wolfie, is a needle-felted critter dressed in sheep's clothing (lol)...he rides in her little basket. Wolfie was handmade especially for Russet by 13Chestnuts.
 Measuring a petite 11.5 inches, Russet loves fall and everything to do with it..she and Wolfie take long autumn walks collecting leaves, which makes sense since her lush hand spun art yarn hair is in the many hues of falling leaves.
Here is little Russet and Wolfie with their entire collection...two Red Riding Hood themed outfits (a dress set and bloomers (with matching bows) by Molly's Playground), a basket for Wolfie to ride in, and 100% russet wool felt shoes with green contrast stitching.
 She sits and stands quite easily, and her butter soft hair is full of many colors and textures purchased from different yarn spinners...
 The deep dark woods (and picking flowers) are some of Russet and Wolfie's favorite past times.
