Tools and Materials needed

The List of Materials

Some of the tools and materials you may already have, but I have added links where you can purchase/find some of the supplies. Your local farmers market might be a great place to get locally grown wool batting. Local craft stores will carry sewing needles and thread for sure and might even have some of the other things. A Google search for Waldorf Doll making supplies will open the doors to many other vendors. If you can’t find something in particular, please don’t hesitate to contact me. I will gladly help with your search.

Watch the video “Doll making – traditional Waldorf doll – ingredients”

I have added links to one place that carries a lot of different doll making supplies.

  • If you are planning to use a sewing machine, you will also need ball point needles for your machine
  • Sewing machine walking foot
  • Measuring tape
  • Crochet hook or knitting needle
