16" Button Children Pattern - Joy's Waldorf Dolls
Sew a Waldorf-inspired doll from this wonderful pattern designed by Joy Chambers.
This is a pattern for 16" Button Children, boy or girl. The Button Children's slender arms and legs are button jointed allowing for different poses, the ability to sit without assistance and to stand when posed just right. This is a shapely doll with a little bum and lovely legs and feet. Patterns included for doll, overalls, shirt & blouse and full wig-making instructions.
This is a pattern for those with some dollmaking experience. As a rule, one can finish this doll in a short amount of time once the stringing is understood as there is less hand sewing. The doll needs to be made very firm in order to hold the stringing. Joy highly recommends the use of her Stuffing Tool to achieve this.
The material list is shown in an additional photo for this pattern. You can find all the supplies needed in the Doll Making section of our website or purchase a complete, custom Button Children Doll Making Kit.
