Sewing: Waldorf Dolls for the Girls


Last Christmas I had visions of making handmade (Waldorf) dolls for Scarlett and Tess (I had already made one for Audrey) and giving the three of them doll wardrobes to go with them. I knitted some little sweaters but that's as far as I got. This year I had similar, but more elaborate visions because the wardrobe ideas were growing. Again, I fell far short from the goal. But I did make two dolls! (With some very late nights and finishing them early Christmas morning!) And I dressed them in the sweaters from last year, which I'd tucked secretly away. 


For Audrey, a red sweater on the doll I made her when her younger sister was born.


And some new red hair ribbons.


For Scarlett, a fair-skinned doll with dark brown eyes (like Scarlett) and pale long hair she can play with.


Scarlett is calling her "Elsa," inspired by her favorite movie.


And for Tess, a dark skinned doll with green eyes and dark curly hair in big piggy tails. I know I shouldn't pick a favorite but I love this little one!


January should be a good month for sewing doll clothes...

For the first doll I made I purchased a Magic Cabin doll making kit, which sadly they sell no longer. I bought the supplies for these two new dolls from Joy.

I love their sweet faces, and I must say, I think the darker skinned one is my favourite too. It's all that lovely hair. :)

Is there a pattern you can share? Or a link to one?
