 Tools and Materials needed

The List of Materials

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 other vendors. If you can’t find something in particular, please don’t hesitate to contact me. I will gladly help with your search.

I have added links to one place that carries a lot of different doll making supplies.

Materials and tools needed:

And here is the list of tools you will need:

  • Fabric scissors
  • Small scissors to cut the thread
  • Ball point hand sewing needle, usually available in multiple size packages #3-#7, I use the thinnest one
  • 7 inches long hand sewing needles for dollmaking  and
  • If you are planning to use a sewing machine, you will also need ball point needles for your machine
  • Sewing machine walking foot
  • Measuring tape
  • Crochet hook or knitting needle
  • A hand sewing needle that is thick enough to thread the yarn for hair
  • If your hands tire easily you may also want to use a wooden dowel for stuffing, I use my thumb and fingers.

Traditional Doll Outfit Pattern

Traditional Doll Outfit Pattern

$ 7.50

This pattern collection includes instructions to create a pattern for a pair of underwear, pants, shirt/dress, footwear. 

Creating patterns to sew a basic doll outfit doesn't have to be difficult. Learn to create simple patterns to dress your traditional Waldorf doll.

The pieces should be loose fitting and easy to handle for a young child. Keep in mind those little hands are just getting started on fine motor skills. If you have trouble getting the right measurement, air on the side of caution and rather use a larger measurement over one that is too small. Also, do not forget to add a seam allowance when cutting your pattern out of fabric. 

Take doll measurements and get started!
