Waldorf Doll Making Part 1

While perusing Etsy one day, I came across some fantastic Waldorf-inspired dolls that my little princess fell in love with, and prompted, "Mommy! I want one!"

I thought, Maybe I can make one myself!

I found a relatively inexpensive kit online at Weir Dolls and Crafts and it has sat, patiently waiting, in my office closet until today.

Now I find I would happily work all night on it without stop until it is complete, but family calls...

Here is a photo process of my Waldorf Doll journey, which so far consists of a blank dolly head... but think of the possibilities!

Prep the cotton tubing

Stuff it

Tie it off

Section off the head

I wanted it to have a nose, even though the kit didn't give directions, I found some easy directions online.

Wrap it tight

Whip stitch it up

These are great photos of the process. I am working on a 12" doll right now. Pinning this post to Pinterest!
