i am just seeing this

for me - i've made 3 dolls... my very first being a kit i bought from Dancing Rain Dolls. Amy was a great help getting me through making my first 2 dolls (my third i used a different pattern - from Magic Cabin, which i do prefer, but her materials are surperub IMHO).

I like Dancing Rain Dolls too! The kit is great b/c it comes with all of the misc needles and things that are harder to track down.

Here is the one I made with a DRD kit.

It was a great learning experience! The only part that wasn't easy to follow was the wig instructions---but then I am NOT a crocheter!!! I managed it, but now I knit the wigs instead. Much easier for me.

Joy's waldorf dolls. I think she's going out of business and her stuff is 30% off.

I'm making my second doll with patterns from Making Waldorf Dolls book. It includes instructions on how to make a few different dolls. It has pictures but they are all pencil drawings. A group of us got together and made the first doll. Made it much easier when making it with others!

Any new suggestions?  I'm not handy with a needle and thread but I'm asking my mom to make one doll for each of my children.  Thought it would be great if she could make one for each grandchild - there are 7.  Hoping to have them done by December...

Weir Dolls sells supplies and patterns.  I would recommend taking a look there.  Magic Cabin has some supplies, but they are phasing them out.  You can make one for about $20, which is a great discount and well worth the time.  The head is the hardest part.

I would also recommend the Making Waldorf Dolls books. I made my first dolls using the pattern in the Children's Year. I found it easy to follow. I would also recommend that you have a wee play at first with the materials to see how you get on. If you didn't want to make them from scratch and just want to 'decorate' them, you can buy just finished bodies on etsy. There are also some great tutorials online.
