Item details

A Joy's Waldorf Doll Making Kit. The Button Child's slender arms and legs are button jointed allowing for different poses, the ability to sit without assistance and to stand when posed just right. Sew a shapely doll with a little bum and lovely legs and feet. This is a kit for those with some doll making experience. As a rule, one can finish this doll in a short amount of time once the stringing is understood as there is less hand sewing. The doll needs to be made very firm in order to hold the stringing.
