This is a PDF downloadable tutorial and pattern to create a 15″ Waldorf Inspired doll bundle including clothes patterns.
This tutorial will teach you to create a Waldorf Inspired doll, like those on the images. You will learn how to make the face of your doll super cute by adding features using needle felting technic. I will teach you to use rolling technic to fill your doll, so all the limbs are nice and smooth, not lumpy.
You will also learn how to add cute knee caps, belly button and buttocks to your doll.
This tutorial is more advanced than my other tutorial for 14″ Waldorf Inspired doll with yarn hair.
If you have never made a doll before, I recommend you to purchase my 14″ doll pattern first, which you can find HERE.
You can find some of my Doll making Videos on Youtube HERE.
Some of these and some other videos have been integrated into the tutorial to help you along the way.
This is a tutorial, with patterns. Materials are not included. The tutorial is 150 pages long. There are lots of pictures to guide you through the steps.
To be able to create this doll you will need to have a general knowledge of using sewing machine, some hand sewing skills, and you will need to be able to embroider the eyes and the mouth.,
The body of the doll is sewn using a sewing machine.
For the hair, I use commercial mohair weft and brushed mohair yarn. 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.
You will be needing the following material to make the doll:
- 270g Carded Wool Batting
- 25×100 cm Cotton Swiss tricot, Laib Yala/ Heavy weight or Waldorfia Hago fabric. Folded into half along the grains. If you use different fabric, you may need to change the pattern slightly to make sure it fits. I am enclosing pattern for Laib Yala and WaldorfiaHago. If you use Meaningful Craft fabric, make the limbs and the bodice 0.5cm longer.
