Breastfeeding Waldorf Doll Pattern

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I want to make DD1 a breastfeeding Waldorf doll. Is there a pattern I could use?

what do you mean by breastfeeding? do you mean that you want the doll to have a magnet in her open mouth that would "attach" to a washer on your dd's nipple?

I did this years ago for one of my daughters. I just made a regular waldorf doll but added boobs with magnets in them. I used extra balls of wool to puff it up, embroidered a bit of nipple and pulled in some stitches underneath to define it. THen I put a magnet under where baby's mouth is. Make sure to not use black magnets-they show through a lot.

Thanks! Did you have to cut the body bigger to allow for the boobs? Or did it stretch ok w/ out cutting the pattern body bigger?

I didn't change mine, but I didn't make them too much bigger. I do shape the body for "mamas" to make them curvier to begin with, though. Usually just by invisible seam stitching to form once the wool is in if my pattern wasn't curvy enough to begin with. You may want to trace over your pattern (I freehand mine) to add a waist and add a little to the top part of the body.
