De Witte Engel Felt Doll Kits

As a little girl I was obsessed with fantastical creatures like fairies, elves, and trolls. I know a lot of kids are into this kind of stuff, but I took it pretty far. I had multiple sets of homemade colorful mesh wings; I once penned a miniature book (in an edition of one, which my mom still has somewhere) about the secret lives of elves; and one summer my mom, sister, and I constructed an entire troll village.

So, needless to say, my inner six year old was thrilled when I laid eyes on these new De Witte Engel Felt Doll Kits. I would have absolutely loved these little woodland sprites as a kid (OK, I still love them!).

These kits come with everything you will need to make one darling doll: 100% wool felt, fabric for the face, stuffing, thread, and full instructions. All you need are scissors and a needle. Best of all, they are very simple to make!

I know a bunch of purple-loving little girls that would flip over the Little Violet doll pictured above.

And how cute would this Little Snowdrop be peeking out of a Christmas stocking?

The Toadstool doll above is one of my favorites. I think the mushroom cap makes such an elegant hat!

If you'd like to make one (or many!) for yourself or for any fairy obsessed kids you might know, please check out our entire selection of De Witte Engel Felt Doll Kits here! --Molly

These are lovely, but I only see one kit available for purchase (Little Snowdrop). Are all the doll kits being sold, or just that one?

Are you able to tell us when, if at all, the dolls featured in the post above may be available? Specifically, the purple, pink and toadstool? I would really like to order these three kits.

Thank you very much!

Hi Everyone!

We do have another box coming from our distributor but it is stuck in customs. We aren't sure when it will arrive but we are really hoping for today!! We will also be ordering more after the day is over and hope that they will get here in time for Christmas shipping. If you'd like to be put on the email notification list, please email me at customerservice@purlsoho.com - we will send out an email when our box arrives.

I love these little dolls for gifts (truly I would like to keep them :-) )
I will keep watching for them to come back. I would love the little white daisy to make and give to my DD. Many thanks.

!!!!! That is probably THE cutest thing I have seen on your site- or any crafting site or book EVER! Snow drop and toad stool are my favorites, but upon checking the link, my favs are SOLD OUT!!! Now there's only Daisy, who, while still totally adorable, is not the one I was looking for. Oh, well. Are the others coming back?
