This is a PDF downloadable tutorial and pattern to create a 14″ Waldorf Inspired doll, and some simple outfits for boy or girl dolls. The separate clothes pattern has the same clothes included, but in 2 sizes.
Now you can find some of my Doll making Videos on Youtube HERE. Some of these videos have been integrated into the tutorial.
This is a tutorial, with the patterns. Materials are not included. There are lots of pictures to guide you through the steps.
To be able to create a doll you will be needing a general knowledge of using a sewing machine and also to do some hand sewing.
The body of the doll will need to be sewn together using a sewing machine.
For the hair, I use mohair boucle yarn here. To be able to create the wig of your doll, you will need some crocheting skills. If you are not sure about crocheting or some of the hand sewing skills, Youtube is an excellent resource of tutorials.
The eyes of the doll will need to be embroidered.
My tutorial will teach you to create a Waldorf Inspired doll, like those on the images.
This tutorial is suitable for you even if you have never made a doll, as long as you have some sewing experience.
You will be needing the following material to make the doll:
- 250g Carded Wool Batting
- 25×100 cm Cotton Swiss tricot, Laib Yala, heavy heavy quality. Folded into half along the grains. If you use different fabric your doll
- might end up becoming slightly different in size

- 12-13 cm long doll making/darning needle

- Embroidery floss ( DMD) for eyes and mouth
- Red wax crayon for blushing the doll
- Strong thread, I use Glütermann upholstery thread
- Sewing Glütermann thread in skin colour
