Susie my Waldorf Doll No. 1

Good morning and welcome to my blog

Today I would like to show you my first Waldorf doll made with 100% natural fibres

in this photograph you can see that I have managed to roll the head using Wood Batting
it is very hard and to make it like this requires lots of patience

this is her all put together the stuffing for the body arms and legs is rolled like sausage rolls mine I have since found out are not firm enough

this is where we start to play dress up the dress is way too long for her 
as it was made for a rag doll but I just needed to see what would fit her

we now have a face and hair oh and look another dress :-)

I decided that I didn't like the mohair for her hair it was too matted for me
so I have changed it to Alpaca yarn - and yes - another outfit

what outfit wouldn't be complete without a hat
this is my first attempt at crocheting using a pattern 
up till now all I could crochet was a granny square

and to complete the look yesterday I made her a denim jacket

Thank you for visiting with me
I hope you enjoyed Susie's journey
and that you will return soon to see who else will appear
