I have finally finished my first Steiner/Waldorf doll. Â I recently participated in a doll making course which ran for 6 weeks. Â Of course, I didn’t get to finish it before the class ended as I missed one of the classes and I spent lots of the time chatting! Â But I had done enough to finish her at home. Â The girls absolutely love her and Scarlett thinks her little smocked dress is very pretty. Â I think I am going to have to make more dresses so that the other dolls don’t have dress envy! Â The smocked dress pattern is one I made myself. Â If I ever get organised enough, I will put it in the tutorial section.
She is made out of organic cotton. Â Her hair is a wool/silk blend. Â I can’t fathom the thought of cutting her hair, so I think I will leave it long. Â The fabric I used for her dress came from a craft swap I participated in last year, on a forum that has now closed down. Â The fabric is where I got the inspiration for the dolls name – Violet.
I am hoping the girls will love playing with Violet and she doesn’t meet the demise of the other Steiner dollies, who I often find strewn throughout the house, with little or no clothing!
