Waldorf Dolls

Postby Tara84 » Fri Jun 15, 2012 2:29 pm

has anybody had a go at making a walldorf doll?
I want to get Evie a wooden dolls pram for her birthday and wanted to get her a waldorf doll to go with it but can't afford both so thought about making her a doll.
Can anyone reccomend a kit? I'd probably want to get some nice hand spun yarn for the hair and could use my own fabric for clothes so would just need the basics.

I'm going to a Waldorf doll workshop run by the local Steiner school toddler group. Really excited.

I have a bramble hedge cottage dolltoo that Darcy got for her birthday today, if you decide to buy instead of make. It's the one in her profile pic at the moment but will post some pics of it on FB later for you :)

This site has loads of bits for making your own Waldorf dolls. http://waldorfdolls.co.uk/
You can use handspun wool for hair if you fancy something funky and like dreadlocks. You can find tutorials on line to make the crochet wig caps too. :D

I looked at getting a kit too, but ended up going for a Bramble Hedge Cottage doll. It's stunning, and really good value. Maxine is a joy to deal with too.

I've got another custom lined up to do a small dolly as a gift from the new baby to my dd.

She's on holiday just now I think though.

@Louise shes lovely, Catrin just spied her over my shoulder and said 'aww, what a pretty little baby' :love: she's now declared that she want's one too :roll: :giggle:

@queen bee that sounds fab, we have a steiner school opening near us in September, will have to see if they'll be doing one

@Hannahboo the one with blue hair and the happy hills fabric dress? She's stunning :love:

@50ftQueenie thank you that site is great, since you are the queen of yarn :wink: can you recommend anywhere to get handspun yarn from

The bramble cottage dolls are lovely, I don't know if I'll have enough time for a custom will have to wait until she's back from holiday and see what she has instock, does anyone know how much her instocks are usually?
