Here's my first waldorf doll. My daughter absolutely LOVES her. I'm still working on the hair.... but I made her a knotty hat for the time being. She's made of cotton knit for the skin and is stuffed with wool. She's also button jointed. 16" from head to toe.
Here she is naked!

And with the fuscia velour PJ's and hat...

To show her size... my 2.5 year old and her new dolly!

What a cute baby doll - I'm sure your daughter will cherish it forever!

My daughter will be 4 in a couple of weeks and I have been trying to figure out what she would like.  She is just now into babies and while she has some store bought ones, I REALLY want to make her one.

Thank you for the inspiration!

wow! This is a beautiful doll! Is it washable? That'd just add to its greatness! Are you gonna make more clothes?

I think I prefer her without hair...although I don't really know what kinda hair you'd make for her. She just looks cute and babylike how she is!

But I really love her, and I admire your skill!

Thanks! IThe doll is washable. Mostly surface washable but the dolls can take a good scrubbing and I read you're supposed to do it yearly. I probably won't make her any more clothes because I'll be starting on an older doll and that one will probably get the outfits. Wink
The hair is made of fuzzy wool yarns.
I got the pattern and supplies here: www.joyswaldorfdolls.com

I made her because there is no way I could pay $100 for a doll.

Both of your "dolls" are so precious! I know they're kind of time consuming to make, but you did a really good job!  Please post pics of the older doll when you finish!

I read in the book I have that the head shaping can be hard to do on these.. did you shape your own head or buy a kit for her?

The head was actually really easy.
Attaching the head to the body by handstitching... now THAT was hard. And I didn't do that great of a job doing it either!

You are very talented!  I love her chubby little body.  I've made Waldorf Dolls in the past and know how much work is involved, what with wrapping the inner head and all.  Love it!

I love waldorf dolls, My daughter goes to a waldorf school (only for the last two years) and she is a little old for the dolls now, but I made a load of the little waldorf angels for last christmas, they are fun to make and easy and look so pretty.

I absolutely love the way your doll turned out.  Your Daughter looks so sweet all snuggled up with her baby.  I have wanted to make a Waldorf doll for years so I finally ordered a kit from Joys to make the Honey doll.  Your doll really inspired me!  Thanks for posting!
