Remi's Doll 2

Yep! Purple hair now complete.
Hooray! I finally completed my daughter's rag doll.  I created a Waldorf yarn wig for this doll.  So very simple to do.  There are numerous resources online if you are interested in doing this style of doll hair yourself and do not know how to do it.  I simple sandwiched my yarn between two pieces of wax paper and used painters tape to hold the strands of yarn in place on the wax paper and sewed  down the middle about four times.  Remove the tape from the yarn and gently pull away the wax paper.  Then I sewed the hair onto the doll with yarn simply going over the sewn seam.  I pulled the hair into side pony tails to cover the back and stitched them into place.  Voila! The hair is complete.

I also go around to crocheting up a matching skirt that is attached to the shirt and hence not removable per my daughter's request so that her little sister can not strip her doll naked. 
Remi's complete rag doll.
Remi is totally in love with her new doll and now totes her around the house and to bed every night.  Looks like I will have to begin another rag doll for her sister as she is telling me that Tate needs to have her own rag doll too.

This was a super fun and easy project and my children got to be involved.  Don't be afraid to fail, because in trying you may actually accomplish something pretty cool.


  1. Your rag doll looks SO cool! Makes me want to give doll making another try!
