Learn about Dolls and How to make: Waldorf Doll (traditional European dolls)

Waldorf doll (also called Steiner doll) is a form of doll used in Waldorf education. Made of wool and cotton, using techniques drawing on traditional European dollmaking, its appearance is intentionally simple in order to allow the child playing with it to improve or strengthen imagination and creativity. For instance, it has no facial expression. Its legs and arms are flexible, allowing natural postures.
Traditional Waldorf dolls are made from cotton interlock knit fabric and wool stuffing. They are often entirely natural. Typically the trademark long hair of a Waldorf doll is made of mohair or boucle. Some doll makers use alternative hair material such as woolrayon, and cotton. The facial features of a Waldorf doll vary with the maker. Most Waldorf dolls have small suggestions of noses, their eye and mouth colors are generally varied with each doll.(From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)

Materials needed:

  • Faux Fur Fabrics here if I wear these kinds of fleece fabric imported :Yelvo , it smooth and supple (elastic), if no, you can use cotton or  velboa ... no problem! 
  • Pattern (here I've transferred to fabric for easy cutting) 
  • Sewing thread and yarn wool Dacron or silicon fibers for stuffing.
  • A little fabric felt for the nose and teeth, as well as to the front of the ear (can also Nylex / cotton for front rabbit ears) 
  • Googly eyes  with a medium size.
  • Multipurpose glue 


  • Scissors
  • Sewing needle and pin 
  • Sewing machine

 How to make:

1. Cut the fabric according to the pattern:

As this pattern. sorry ...I have not been able to make the pattern into a PDF file, still no support facilities  :P. thus be estimated only. or please print the photo below. and traced to a pattern

Cut the pattern:

  • 2 ear pieces and 2 pieces of fleece fabric Nylex fabric / felt
  • Face 2 sheets back and reverse
  • Head back 2 pieces reverse each other
  • Back bodies behind 2 pieces reverse each other
  • Front body 1 sheet
  • Front hand 2 pieces reverse each other
  • Cover the neck (where putting a finger to move the puppet's head) 2 pieces here in blue.

 2. Sew around the ear piece to stacking fine face on the ear piece of fleece fabric with Nylex fabric leave the bottom open. Do as well on the finger grip (cover the neck).
Sew the center back of the head piece with great side of face, also do the same to face the rabbit pieces.

 3. Sew the center back piece body with fine side of the fabric face, then sew hand pieces hollow next to the front body piece as shown below

 4. Join the face with the front body kit neat. Do as well the same with the back of the head and body back :)

5. Sew the finger grip (cover the neck) to the connection in the back neck of a rabbit a part of one side only.

 6. Slide the rabbit ears on top of his head with folded back part forward like a picture, put a pin and then stacked with the face a rabbit that has been merged with the body face front with a nice side of course, like a sandwich: P

 As if already stacked the head with ears that have been tucked into!

Front view inside

Back view inside

After turned ... tadaaa .. ready to be filled!

 8. To make it easier filling, slightly Roll up a hand puppet body towards exit and fill with dacron. Remember to fill it just enough not too dense, because then the finger had no place to play, not too little as the head of a rabbit will dented: P
Roll out the body


Check the shape of his head, if it's okay ...?
