Die Waldorfpuppe findet seit vielen Generationen in der Waldorf Pädagogik Verwendung. Aus Naturmaterialen von Hand gefertigt, entspringen Waldorfpuppen einer starken europäischen Tradition der Puppenmacherei. Durch ihre Schlichtheit in der Ausformung und die Reduktion auf das Wesentliche ermöglichen sie ein freies Entfalten der Fantasie im Puppenspiel.

This PDF EBook includes a 25 page detailed tutorial for sewing your own Babies First Snuggle Doll. It is designed elaborately and contains more than 50 detaild pictures to follow step by step. It also contains information about the meaning of dollplay in Waldorf Education, about Basic Sewing Techniques for dollmaking, about resources for doll making materials and an illustrated guide to washing cloth dolls.

Often a doll-friend accompanies a child through the whole of childhood as loyal companion and thus it should be carefully chosen. A snuggle dolly is a good choice for a first doll. It has a soft, cuddly body and a pixie hat like the Knecht Ruprecht Snuggle Doll and it can easily be taken along everywhere. It can be wrapped in its own cuddly body fabric and thus be in bed, and it takes on trusted, comforting scents to have nearby where ever one goes.

It is particularly good when this important companion is personally made. This guide book provides a way to make this possible.

When I make the Knecht Ruprecht Snuggle Dolls in my own workshop, I use GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) certified organic velour fabric made from pure cotton and Swiss cotton doll tricot. I fill the head and body base with pure wool fleece. Often it can be hard to come by the kind of high quality, tested organic fabrics one would like to use for such a special task and this can be frustrating. For this reason I have put together DIY Fabric and Material Packs, available to order.

These packs come in the three colours; moss green, sea blue or rose. A piece of GOTS certified organic cotton velour, a piece of GOTS certified cotton doll tricot for the inner head/face and a piece for the outer head, with some pure wool fleece for the filling of the head and body bit. In the packs I have also included the yarn for binding the doll and the cheek blush for the magic last touches.
