Simple Waldorf Wool Roving Dolls and Angels
These are very simple wool roving Waldorf dolls we have made for ourselves and other people. The top doll is actually a root/flower doll we made for spring last year. The different types of angels are hanging from the ceiling of my daughters room. They are also a traditional Christmas and Easter craft. These are a first step in dollmaking (see my blog on making Waldorf dolls). With a few snips and a couple knots-a beautiful etheric doll is made. This gives children a sense of confidence as they realize they can "make" something themselves. We bought this wool from Weir Crafts in Ann Arbor- a wonderful store and Susan the owner is very helpful and accomodating with all your needs.
