Some of the tools and materials you may already have, but I have added links where you can purchase/find some of the supplies. Your local farmers market might be a great place to get locally grown wool batting. Local craft stores will carry sewing needles and thread for sure and might even have some of the other things. A google search for Waldorf Doll making supplies will open the doors to many vendors. If you can’t find something, in particular, please don’t hesitate to contact me. I will gladly help with your search.
cotton velour fabric (heavy t-shirt fabric or sweatshirt fabric) - approx.. 30”x30” also depending on the size of the doll.
matching (cotton velour) sewing thread
optional fabric ribbon or lace (if you want to decorate the doll in any way)
cotton embroidery thread in eye color and lip color of your choice
To embroidering doll hair you want to go no thicker than dk yarn. I like to go to the local yarn store and pick up something nice, often a semi-solid color to give the doll a natural look. Depending on the thickness of the yarn it can be crochet into a cap or embroidered directly onto the head) http://www.achildsdream.com/smooth-mohair-doll-hai...http://www.achildsdream.com/de-witte-engel-mohair-boucle-doll-hair-yarn/ I like to buy the yarn once I have the skin fabric in hand, even take it to the yarn store to choose the right color. Try to look at the fabric and yarn in natural daylight. A small yarn store will let you step outside to see "the real" colors.
