A Joy's Waldorf Doll Making Kit for sewing a newborn size weighted Waldorf doll. Baby Jess, when complete, sits on its own, weighs 3 1/2 pounds, is 19" long and wears newborn clothes or you can sew a cozy cotton velour footy sleeper, hat and cotton flannel diaper from the included materials. This heavy baby doll warms up when being held, encourages nurturing skills and feels substantial in a child's arm or on a lap. The extra-effort to make this wonderful doll is well worth it!
Kit includes: reusable pattern pieces for 19" doll, footy sleeper, hat and diaper; Organic Skin Tone Cotton Knit; plenty of Eco Wool stuffing for a true Waldorf style doll; natural fiber hair yarn; inner head tubing; Cotton Knit Velour fabric for the footy sleeper and hat; unbleached cotton flannel for diaper; cotton muslin for sand bags; Velcro; elastic; a plain chopstick with a square end for stuffing; embroidery floss for facial features, craft thread and tying string; photo-illustrated step-by-step instructions; and 8 baby style wig making directions.
