I never normally give posts to my crafts. *shrugs* i just never think them worthy of a whole post. But i am sat here winding down from my daughters 5th birthday, and thought i might as well show her doll off.
I will hopefully get some better pics soon, and likely add some of my other Waldorf inspired dolls to this post.





She has had a few names so far today including Ella, flower and heart. Leyonce is very creative and will likely come up with lots of names before she sticks with the perfect creation.
Including the mass of her hair, which is a crochet cap wig and styleable, she is about 20 inches tall.

This one is my sons doll that i made him for his 6th birthday last month, he is a couple of inches smaller, and his hair is great to play with Smiley



Hope you like Smiley

Agreed!  Definitely worth posting.

A question if I may?  This might seem like a novice inquiry, but how did you get the face fabric to curve the cheeks and pop out the button nose?

You shape the face by first making an inner head which you sculpt. I always give the cheek shape, and sometimes shape for noses, eyes and mouths, depending what mood i am in Smiley Then you pull the 'skin' over it like a glove.
