What I am Making For Christmas? Part Two

For some reason this summer I became obsessed with Waldorf Dolls. If you don't know what a Waldorf Doll is Wikipedia defines them as:

A Waldorf doll (also called Steiner doll) is a form of doll used in Waldorf education. Made of wool and cotton, using techniques drawing on traditional European dollmaking, its appearance is intentionally simple in order to allow the child playing with it to improve or strengthen imagination and creativity. For instance, it has no facial expression. Its legs and arms are flexible, allowing natural postures.

Traditional Waldorf dolls are made from cotton interlock knit fabric and wool stuffing. They are often entirely natural. Typically the trademark long hair of a Waldorf doll is made of mohair or boucle. Some doll makers use alternative hair material such as wool, rayon, and cotton. The facial features of a Waldorf doll vary with the maker. Most Waldorf dolls have small suggestions of noses, their eye and mouth colors are generally varied with each doll.
I have known for a long time that I have to make C1 a Waldorf Doll for Christmas. The thing is I have never made a doll before so I had no idea where to begin.

So after much research (like three months worth) I ran into this blog post from:

offering kits for sale.

I jumped on it and bought a kit. It has recently come in the mail (drool I LOVE it).

So I am pretty busy and well off to work on my doll for C1.

What are you making for Christmas?
