This is Charlotte. She is my very first attempt at making a doll.





I first stumbled across Waldorf dolls here on Craftster and fell in love with their little expressionless faces. It was a three week project and I had a couple issues.

1. Floppy Head
   and
2. Neck Wrinkles




Despite those things I really love the way she turned out. I used a chenille-type baby yarn for the wig and she is wearing one of 2 outfits I made for her. I used an American Girl clothes pattern and altered just a bit. One was this pink princess dress, petticoat and jacket.

My niece Alicia turned 5 on Valentines Day and this was one of my gifts to her.

Thanks to all the people who's posts I studied so hard in order to make this.

Feedback really appreciated on the problems.

She is beautiful, and a wonderful first doll.
My first one has a floppy neck too, hasn't stopped my daughter loving her for 6 years Smiley  I have found when they are going to be played with by children, that i prefer to make the head out of a tube, with the neck pulled tight with some thread. That thickens up the neck.

Her face is so dear, looking forward to seeing more of your dolls Smiley

She is beautiful!  I'm sorry I don't have any advice.  I have been wanting to make a Waldorf doll for a long time now.  Too chicken to jump in and start!
