Meet Valentina


I'm always tickled when one of my customers returns to share their creations with me. This sweet Waldorf doll by Regan of Barking Dog Creations is so adorable that I had to share her with you too.

When Regan bought some Thick & Thin wool yarn from my shop, I would never have guessed that it would become Valentina's Hair! Regan shares, "She is most definitely a girly-girl. She loves her flowing pink chiffon skirt and her red and pink shirt- pink is her favorite color after all!"

"Valentina is made of 100% organic cotton knit fabric stuffed with clean wool. Her hair is wool, some of which was hand dyed by me using food coloring. There are also some strands of baby alpaca/silk blend yarn in her hair as well. Her hair can be styled in different ways; ponytail, pigtail, buns, half up half
down, braids, or just worn long, but be careful she doesn't trip- her hair reaches just past her toes! Valentina is 14" tall and has green eyes that have been embroidered on with cotton embroidery thread."

I think any girl would be lucky to receive Valentina as a valentine this year!

Visit Barking Dog Creations on Etsy to see more pictures of Valentina. There are also two more little cuties in the shop.
