Christine Newell’s knitted outfits for 16 inch Waldorf dolls

What a cute sight! Christine knitted little outfits to dress these 16 inch Waldorf dolls.

I think the jacket is made from Italian mohair…correct me if I am wrong, Christine!

Christine uses the finest, natural materials for her craft, including yarn from Italy and Spain. She also uses fun materials such as wool mohair and angora.

If you are interested in these outfits, either e-mail her directly or leave your e-mail in the comment box below and I will pass her your information. – Jzin. November 30, 2012
