I started making two Steiner or Waldorf style dolls. Strictly speaking they aren’t as they don’t use the finest and purest ingredients of plain wool and cotton. In fact, so far they use child’s elbow Tubigrip, old desert uniform t-shirt, shredded polyester quilters wadding and car-boot-sale wool!

This second head now sports a full ponytail of hair but the method I used means she has too much bald spots when you part her hair. I have a few ideas on how to improve and one day I’d like to do a tutorial on how I would do both male and female hair 🙂
