Wikipedia description of a waldorf doll.

I'm posting this link for a description of a waldorf doll for those who do not know about the Waldorf style of doll making.  A lot of doll makers have different styles and variations in the making of their dolls so no two are ever alike.  Just a few stitches can give your doll a personality of its own.

New Dolls listed on Etsy Today

I've  listed a couple of new Waldorf dolls in my Etys shop today.  I've had them ready for awhile but I'm not so great at getting the pictures taken.  They are made of all natural materials, wool, cotton etc.  Thanks for looking.

Belinda and Lucinda-Edith Flack Ackley pattern dolls

These are all dolls I've made from Edith Flack Ackley's 1934 pattern--Belinda and Lucinda.
The pattern was offered for sale in the November 1934 issue of Woman's Home Companion.  They were fun to make but somewhat harder to sew than Edith's larger doll pattern.  They are about 10 inches.  See my link for a free pattern to make your own.  I only ask that you do not resell my pattern.
