After first laying eyes on a Waldorf doll I was hooked! My girls had to have one!
So I decided to figure out how to make one...If you aren't familiar with what a Waldorf Doll is here is the definition. I read all the online tutorials, checked out books from the library and used the techniques that I thought made the cutest dolls.
My girls LOVE them! Here is Suzy:
She is my youngest daughter's doll. I made her to match her hair and eye color, but I really don't think that my girls care, they just like the dolls.
The dolls are dragged along with us to soccer games, library story time, grocery shopping etc. and they are holding up pretty well.
Julia is 2 years old and not the most gentile with her things. But the dolls were meant to be played with and they are well loved.
The time spent making the dolls was well worth it because they like them so much. Not really sure where the name Suzy came from but she is pretty adamit that that is her name, so Suzy it is.
I am so pleased with the way the dolls came out that I decided to sell a couple on Esty. You can check out my store here: Little J Bird
