brilliant! I love it! What great ideas!!
I'm assuming you use the trouser sock as a base for the body and head and stretched the peach stocking over it?
I really need to work harder on thinking out side the box, what a great way to upcycle baby clothes!

Yep, that is exactly what I did for the head. Smiley  Here's pic of the white trouser sock stuffed and formed into the head:


Then you sew a cover for the head base with the tights material.  Worked perfectly!  I made the body out of the tights material only.  But you could use the trouser sock too, I think it would give the doll a stiffer body.

Good for you! An awesome doll from talented and thrifty hands! I just bought the kit for the Waldorf Heavy Baby to make for my mom, who has Alzheimers. Honestly? I wish I had seen your post first.
Congratulations on a fine job!


Ohhh, post pics when you complete it, I'd love to see it Smiley  I bet it will be fantastic!

That is fantastic.  Never in a million years would I have guessed that she came from dollar-store components.

Great job, she is absolutely amazing.  I had every intention of making one of those for my boys when they were younger, but I couldn't find any of the supplies locally.  I think she is awesome!!!

WOW! I have made a waldorf doll before.  Yours is just so fun!  I think I am going to have to make another one.  I love her tights, undies and shoes!

You got my vote! Cheesy You have inspired me to make one of these for my little girl's 2nd birthday in May. What did you stuff her with? The cotton balls? Would poly fiber work ok or should I use a natural fiber?
