This is Zoe

This is the doll that I made for my daughters 5th birthday. She is based on the pattern from Making Waldorf Dolls, which I highly recommend and wish I'd bought two years ago when I began making Waldorf dolls for my kids!

I hand spun the wool for her hair using a drop spindle. I followed this tutorial and with a little practice I was very pleased with the results. Its not quite up to knitting yarn standards, but It worked out perfectly for hair.

So far shes brought love and friendship to our biggest little girl. I find myself obsessed with making pretty clothes for her. Can't help but wonder if somehow I missed out on the doll thing as child.

  1. I'm a wee bit obsessed with making clothes for my daughter's doll as well (and, ahem, may have just purchased one for myself!) I missed the doll thing as a kid too - I liked My Little Ponies more than Barbies.
