Skill Level: Beginner (Ages 13+ or Ages 10-12 with assistance)
A Joy's Waldorf Doll Making kit to sew TWO dolls. One a 10" and the other a 6" Bunting Baby. Bunting dolls are stuffed dolls made of soft cotton velour with a pillow type body. These cuddly baby dolls are for the very young to snuggle and a wonderful first doll for a child.
This pattern is well-suited for the beginner doll maker or a child. Having materials for making two sizes gives plenty of practice in sewing and beginning doll making skills. Velour, as a rule, can be challenging to sew, either by hand or machine, but with Joy’s technique it will be a breeze.
