I've wanted to try making Waldorf dolls for awhile, but couldn't find any of the necessary materials locally. Before spending a bunch of money ordering them online, I thought I'd give it a shot using what I had on hand - alova suede and polyester stuffing. This is the result!



She was definitely fun to make and I think she's super cute, though her head's quite large for her body! Her hair is needle felted - my first time needle felting, which was fun though I broke a ton of needles. Her clothes are just really simple felt pieces that are sewn on to her body.



The wings, though they don't show up very well.

This doll is going to a 4 year old girl I know, and I have the materials for a couple real Waldorf dolls coming in the mail!

She's beautiful, I love her.  I think her head is the right size for a four year old. I am assuming she is meant to be the same age as her owner. The blue hair is so sweet and the wings are lovely.
