Cuddle Doll EBook - the best doll for a baby is a mama made doll!

I my opinion the best doll for a baby is a mama made doll. I just created a new Cuddle Doll Design in my Studio and since the making of this little doll is very suitable for beginners I decided to prepare a  Ebook for the making of this little baby cuddle doll.
I did like the work on this Ebook a lot and so it became the first one of more doll making Ebooks to come. I is a professional laid out, step by step tutorial containing over 50 pictures and detailed descriptions as well as explanations of the most important sewing techniques for doll making.
It also contains a lot of information about the meaning of doll play and about materials as well as a detailed list on great sources for organic and GOTS certificated doll making materials.  

Through my own experience of many years of doll making I know how difficult it can be to find and get proven materials of good, fair trade and organic quality for doll making. So I decided to offer a suitable doll making kit for the Cuddle Doll EBook which will be available soon in three beautiful colors: rose, seeblau and moosgrün. All fabrics in this kit have a beautiful texture and are GOTS - Global Organic Textile Standard and fair trade.

The Cuddle Doll EBook is beeing completed in german version in the next days and will be translated in english version professionaly and launched in the upcoming weeks.

Last Minute Gift Making - DIY Peppermint Sugar Scrub

Each year we make something special for extended family and friends, just a little homemade gift to share on christmasday. This year we made Fresh Peppermint Sugar Scrub which we did already test...... and we are very pleased with the outcome!
This Peppermint Sugar Scrub can easily be made with children. As soon as the melted coconut butter is not hot anymore everyone can help mixing together the ingredients in a large pot or bowl. Can be a bit messy indeed.... but is there anything more beautiful than a crafty mess? Ha! 
For our Peppermint Sugar Scrub we used Sugar, coconut butter, very finely crushed dried peppermint leafes from our garden and Essential Peppermint Oil from Young Living with its strong, clean, fresh, minty aroma. 
For the DIY Sugar Scrub You will need:
  • 2 Kilogramm white granulated sugar (about 12 little jars)
  • 250 Gramm coconut butter (melted)
  • very finely crushed dried peppermint leafes
  • About 10 drops Essential Peppermint Oil
  • Mix all ingredients well in a large pot.
  • Store in the sanitized, jars, packing the sugar tightly. 
  • Store in a cool place away from direct sunlight.
Enjoy!!!
