The Dutch primary school teacher spent hours knitting dolls representing 23 of her little students after she missed them sorely following the school closures due to Covid-19.
Miss Ingeborg, a primary school teacher at the Dr. H.Bavinck school in Haarlem, Netherlands, spent hours preparing a sweet gesture for 23 of her little students after she missed them sorely following the school closing. “It was all up and running that the school closed. It all hit me like this. The children were no longer in school. And I miss them so much,” she told media.
It was then that she remembered a knitted doll she’d seen on Pinterest earlier and decided to make one representing each of her young students. Miss Ingeborg poured over the details for each doll, making sure to match every single one of them to the respective student.
She spent about three to four hours knitting each doll, knitting cardigans on the dolls of her students who often wore cardigans to school, freckles on the dolls of her freckled wards, and taking care to get every single one of their hair colors and hairstyles right.
Once she finished knitting all 23 dolls, she showed a picture of her creations to her students and their parents. They had no difficulty recognizing their respective dolls although the picture didn’t specify which doll represented whom.
However, Miss Ingeborg’s students had one grievance with the picture she sent them. “Where’s the teacher?” they asked and the loving educator quickly knit a replica of herself to complete the set.
The dolls were such a huge hit with her students. After a photo of the adorable dolls was posted in social media, people praised the teacher for her dedication and craftsmanship.
