We've been meeting with a few other families on our home-school Mondays for the past few weeks. One of the other mama's has been involved in Waldorf/Steiner for many years & knows lots of Steiner craft. This week we hosted! The mama's get crafty while the children play & are *hopefully* inspired to come & join us. A little surprisingly, Hug has been our best "student" & most interested to get involved. This week we made these sweet dolls!
This is Hug's little prince. Lovely asked for the girl one so made that one for him (I finished it while he slept last night but of course this morning when he discovered it he asked where his boy was ;)
Our crafty friend helped Hug by cutting out all of the pieces & stitching the pants for him but he sewed the top & the crown all by himself.
I was in Macro mode as he was moving around sewing so these photo's aren't as sharp as I would have liked. Home school guerrilla photography :) lol.
Voila! These were super easy. The body is shaped with pipe-cleaners & then the woolen-felt clothes are stitched over the top & little beads glued on to the tips of the pipecleaners for the hands & feet. A larger bead is glued on for the head. The crown is also felt & is just sewn at the back & glued on. The girls hair is beautiful spun fleece & she has an acorn hat :)
