After getting a waldorf doll for Christmas my daughter requested a baby sister for her.
What else could I do but get started.
As a baby I wanted to proportion her a little differently than Patience.
I made her arms and legs a little shorter and chubbier. I also did some extra stitching at the elbows and knees to make them dimpled. I'm not sure if you can see well because of the hair, but I did add tiny ears to this doll.
I wanted to give her fine thin hair instead of a full thick head of hair. I believe what I used is a fingerling weight mohair blend. I misplaced the wrapper :(
Since this was my daughters big Christmas present I made a full layette set to go with her.
I don't know how many times I had to re draw the patterns to get them right but They're done.
I made 2 baby blankets, 2 kimono style pj's, 1 long sleeved onsie, 1 short sleeved onsie, 1 pair of pants, 3 diapers, 2 bibs, 2 burp cloths, 1 hat, 1 headband (top picture), 1zip up sleeper (below), 1 pair of booties, 1 bottle made out of wool felt, and 1 pouch to hold wipies with 3 wipies in it.
The onsies and the pair of pants( in solid pink) are made of cotton interlock. Everything else was made from cotton flannel.
One day while I was working on a doll my son asked why I never make dolls for him.
I thought," Very good question indeed".
In my next post I will show how I fixed the situation.
