A half-Asian Waldorf Doll
I purchased a kit from Joy's Waldorf Dolls and it was both fantastic and easy! Unfortunately it appears as though she isn't selling individual kits anymore but I am sure there are other options.
I chose the light brown wavy hair to match my daughter's. It's also mohair, so while it looks a bit crazy it is the only option that is brushable! I just freehand embroidered the eyes, first outlining the shape in running stitch and then filling in using a satin stitch, just as you would for a traditional round eye.
Here's a closer look at her face:
I completed the project in about 4 evening's work. It was very easy and rewarding. Although she doesn't really care for it over her other toys at the moment, I am really happy to have created an heirloom for her.
