|My first Waldorf doll|
For Christmas, I order a Waldorf
|Waldorf doll hair in the making|
I really had fun with it and can't wait to make a second one. I didn't have any particular difficulties making the body and the head, even though the head seemed really hard to make when I looked at the explanations on internet, well, let me tell you something, it's not as complicated as it seems. Never the less, I did have a big challenge, I had to learn how to crochet in order to make the wig, and that took me a while, I know how to knit but not how to crochet. So I simply googled it, and was able to learn form some videos on line. First the chain stitch, (the first 8 stiches only) thanks to this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OtmOEzm_OXQ. Then, I had a hard time understanding what I needed to do in the pattern until I saw this video, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n6LVLMwDdpo&feature=channel, I didn't make a square thing, but it made me understand the pattern. It took me a while to make the crochet part of the wig, and I had to star over again more times than I will admit, but I am proud to say that I made my doll all by myself, and by hand (I made it at my parents in law and there are no sewing machine there so I didn't have a choice).
I know I should write a post about the other Christmas things I made, but I forgot to take pictures, and my sister still has not sent me the pictures so you will have to wait.
