Skill Level: Intermediate with doll making experience.
A Joy's Waldorf Doll Making Kit to sew a cute doll with a cute little bum! 16 inch Baby Companion has separate seamed limbs which are sewn for firmness and stability. Even though it is one of the most difficult it is a very satisfying doll to sew. All will be well if you can take care not to overstuff. Baby Companion is a doll that can take being slept all over and dragged everywhere. It is easier to repair than a button-jointed doll and will surely need many sink baths with luke-warm water.
IMPORTANT! Please, read the list at the bottom of the description for additional supplies you will need.
