My First Waldorf Doll


I started this doll last winter, hoping to make three of them for the three older kids, but ran out of time, then got burned out with crafting (I don't have a long attention span). So I decided to try and finish this one in time for Reuben's 3rd birthday next week. Most of it is hand sewn, but I cheated with the sewing machine a little. It is made with organic cotton jersey and stuffed with eco-wool. The clothes are made with felted wool from recycled sweaters.

Thanks, all! Grace, the head was the hardest part, just getting all the wrinkles out. Next time I might try a different method, if I can find one. The rest was pretty easy.
