Item details

At 16 inches tall, this is the classic, huggable Waldorf play doll.

Two doll patterns in one! Choose either of 2 easy traditional construction techniques: the one-piece body with straight legs, or the sewn-in legs with more natural shaping. Arms may be sewn-on or button jointed. Legs are hinge-jointed.

Choose from 2 hair styles. Go long and loose, with ultra-easy, no-crochet construction. Instructions for a clever and low-cost adjustable hair loom are also included. For crochet fans, directions are given for a quick loop-stitched curly cap.

Dress your doll in a quick and easy 2-piece outfit, with short pants and sleeveless top. It's a cut play outfit, or pajamas.

Materials for the doll:
**Un-spun wool batting for stuffing (about 1/2 pound).
**2-inch wide tubular cotton gauze (about 1 yard for each head).
**1/2 yard cotton interlock knit in skin-tone of your choice (makes several dolls).
**Embroidery floss - red plus your choice of eye color.
**Thread to match doll skin fabric.
**Strong cotton craft thread.
**Red beeswax crayon for rosy cheeks.
**Wool or cotton yarn for hair.
**Two 3/4-inch buttons for jointing arms (optional).
**7-inch doll needle.
**Surgical hemostats (optional, but recommended).

Materials for the clothes:
**1/4 yard soft woven cotton.
**12 inches of 1/4-inch elastic.
**Baby rickrack or narrow lace.
**2 snap fasteners

    Very cute doll and was easy to follow! Was a good pattern for a first timer like myself. My daughter's sweet doll turned out very well.
