I have always wanted to make a Waldorf Doll and had a directions about how to make one, so that was what I set out to do! Cheesy   Of course there are specific supplies used to make Waldorf dolls, but Dollar Tree items seem to work very well too!  And a lot cheaper, I'm sure.  I am sooo happy with how she turned out.  So I present Daisy the Dollar Store Dolly....

I headed to Dollar Tree and found the closest thing I could to the actual supplies needed:

for doll:
1 pair white trouser socks
1 pair light pink tights
1 bag cotton balls (not in photo)
1 skein acrylic yarn
for her clothes and accessories:
1 baby onesie
1 baby halter dress
1 plastic bead kit
1 plastic bead necklace
1 pair polka dot socks
(The white monkey anklets in the pic were not used Smiley)

Help me! 

I love this pic in her socks and undies

Here are her mary janes:

She is adorable and super cool! I love her mary janes and the fact that you were able to make her with dollar store items.

Wow, I'm impressed!  I would never have guessed in a million years that you made her for under $10.  She looks great!  I love your color choices.

WOW! I would NEVER have guessed that dolly was made from dollar store ingredients! She's fantastic!! I doubt she could be any cuter if you had used the high dollar stuff. She's perfection! Yay!  Grin
