Waldorf doll is a special kindtextile dolls, which was developed by teachers specifically for kindergartens and schools. The task of such dolls is care and special care for the moral and physical health of the child, taking into account its natural development. The invention of Waldorf dolls, both initially and now, is aimed at the competent growth of the child and his harmonious and harmonious development, and not on making a profit. While creating Waldorf dolls, the authors used only natural materials. The skin of toddlers is too susceptible to external irritants and for any child will be much better acquainted initially only with the natural materials of the surrounding world. A natural doll, created by your own hands, is filled with energy and love of your master, which will be passed on to your baby through touch. A traditional Waldorf doll is created from materials such as knitwear, sheep's wool, linen, cotton, etc. Make this doll by exclusive technology (if possible, sewing machines are not used). Unlike many famous textile dolls, Waldorf dolls have clear proportions corresponding to the proportions of an adult or a child's body. This is done for the purpose that the child, playing with the doll, take real, undistorted information about people, animals and the world around in general. Although each doll has its own individuality, but there are also common distinctive features. These dolls have smooth shapes. All facial features, although worked out, but conditionally. This is done to develop the child's imagination. When choosing a toy, be sure to consider the age and character of the baby for whom this doll is designed. Also it should be noted that for each child's age a certain toy is intended. The older the child, the more specific are the details and features of the doll. The doll becomes as though finished. Now consider the pattern of the Waldorf doll pattern, which can be found below. You can increase the size of your pattern athelp the computer or implement it directly when cutting. But keep in mind that increasing the trunk of the doll by 1 cm (0.5 cm on each side), it is necessary to increase its length by 2 cm, the length of the legs should also be increased by 2 cm. In general, the doll should become longer by 4 cm. Do not forget and on the hands, they need to be made thicker by 0.5 cm and lengthened by 2 cm. In any case, the arms along the length should remain exactly the same as the trunk. As for the head, then a piece of fabric for its manufacture should be taken in a rectangular shape. Its size will correspond to twice the width of the doll and its length. Based on the size of our doll - it will be 10 by 15 cm. The share thread should be set on the side that is shorter. It is recommended to start making the doll itself from the head, and then - to select for it a suitable pattern. The head is considered the most difficult work, so it will be easier to pick up the trunk to it, than vice versa. Below you can see a diagram illustrating an example of the layout of the pattern on the fabric, and do not forget about the allowances on the seams, they should be at least 0.5 cm. Also it is necessary to stop separately on manufacturingthe Waldorf doll's head. You need to prepare 3-4 woolen or sinteponovyh strips, their width should be 3-4 cm, and length - about 25 cm. Note that the head will take a large amount of stuffing material. Roll the ball out of the material that you decided to use to fill the doll (choose one that does not shed), if it crumbles, then it is better to wrap it in gauze or some similar material. Grab the resulting ball with strips of a pre-prepared sintepon. They must completely cover the ball, and the ends are assembled in one place to form the future neck. Place the resulting ball in preparedshell and bandage. Take a good look at the resulting bag. From it we will do the head and neck. Stretch the space between the neck and head with a strong thread several times. Before it's too late, carefully check the packing density in the chin area and the thickness of the neck. If something does not suit you, you can still fix it. The resulting bundle is best sewn inside, as illustrated in the picture, and it is better to make the neck longer than the finished doll (up to one third of the head of our doll). Now you can proceed to give the shape ballhead. Take a strong thread and wrap it around the middle of the head. The thread must crush its head and enter it. On the back of the head, knot the knot, leaving the tips about 10 cm. The resulting eye thread should be located in the middle between the lines of the chin of our doll and the top of the head, like a human. The second thread must be wrapped around the head, positioning it across the first. Place the thread on the thread so that it crosses the eye thread where the doll's ears will be. Tie it under the chin, so that the ends were not too long. Both intersections of the yarns on the sides are best stitched with a few stitches for strength. After that, slide the eye thread on the occiput downward, as illustrated in the diagram. Thread ends need to be hidden, passing them through the cheek threads located on the back of the head. Connect them with one knot and cut. Our head is fully formed. If the level of your skill is not so great, then the spout should not be done, it will provide a lot of unnecessary trouble. Now we proceed to the tightness of the head. You need to take a flap of knitted fabric flesh-colored and fold it twice with your face inwards. Place the face of the doll inside, the middle of the face should be on the fold line. Similar to the pattern, circle the occipital and cervical lines. Sew it on the resulting line, cut and twist as neatly as possible. The resulting shell must be put on the headso that the seam is in the middle of the neck. Make sure that the tissue on the face is laid smoothly and not skewed. Spread out the jersey around the neck and chin, pull it and sew it. Then do the same with the shell in the area of the crown. Do not be afraid, the seams will not be visible, tk. one will hide in the trunk, and the other will be under the hair. That's how we prepared the basis of our head. The field of how the head of our pupa is completely ready, it is necessary to correct the dimensions of the trunk of our doll so that its length from the neck to the foot is three times the length of the head. Then spread out the corrected pattern on a piece of fabric, circle it and fasten it with pins. Cut the parts easier after all the seams have been made. You need to sew two times: the first time - along the contour, and the second - slightly receding outwards from the contours. The top of the trunk should not be stitched. Cut the trunk of the pupa carefully using sharp scissors. In the area of the fingers and between the legs, it is necessary to cut closer to the seams. This is done to make the body easier to turn out.
