|My first Waldorf inspired doll|
Above you see the 16" doll I made this month from a kit from Weir crafts. The hair is organic merino wool, the stuffing is Eco Wool. The face is stoic. I think there's 0% synthetics in this doll - even the thread is 100% cotton.
And I am frickin' in love!

The stars aligned and I scored a used sewing machine from a cousin that I can use to make future dolls, etc. It's an oldy - I can't find the reverse, and it does one stitch - forward - at adjustable intervals. It's plodding and tenacious. It's totally growing on me, because frankly, fast, loud sewing machines scare me. I know they're going for my fingers!
