Making Waldorf Dolls
by Maricristin Sealey


“A comprehensive guide to doll-making. The best instructions for doing hair styles that I have seen.” —Judy Quick, handwork teacher

“Maricristin's book is a fine source for the beginner doll maker. It is a valuable primer, full of practical tips, simple designs and clear, easy to follow instructions.” —Sara MacDonald, Magic Cabin Dolls Company

"It is a beautiful thing," says Maricristin Sealey, "to craft a doll with your own hands, sew it together with love, then make a gift of it to your child with the words, 'I made this for you!'"

This comprehensive, well-illustrated book will give even the most nervous beginner the confidence to produce a unique, handcrafted toy from natural materials. Once you have mastered the basic baby dolls, you can progress to the more ambitious limbed and jointed dolls.

Included are:

* ten designs including soft, baggy, pouch, angel, sack and limbed dolls
* instructions for knitted, sewn and embroidered hairstyles, lots of patterns for dolls' clothes and accessories
* help with tools, techniques and materials
* ideas for recycling clothing for dollmaking and where to get materials

This new edition is published with a completely revised resource list.  7 ½ x 9 ½.  160 pages.  Fully illustrated.  Paperback.

Painting with Children
by Brunhild Muller
A vital factor in every child’s development is the stimulation of active imagination and creativity. This book presents ideas that encourage self-expression through the medium of watercolors.
Fundamental and practical, this book is based on Goethe’s color theory, showing that painting with children is more than merely a form of self-expression—Brunhild Müller encourages the reader to understand children’s fantasies and inner being through their artworks.  This is an essential guide for both parents and teachers. It covers preparation, color stories and poems, and painting the moods of nature and seasons of the year.  48 pages.
Color photographs. Revised Edition.
