I have been making German style clothdolls in the waldorf tradition for over ten years. Embroidering the face on a doll is the hardest job when making a doll. In this tutorial I include many useful embroidery tips for beginners and folks who may have tried making dolls before and struggled. Tutorial explains how I do the faces on my miniature dolls and big dolls. It explains different styles of embroidering faces. This Tutorial does not include a doll pattern! It's all about face embroidery!
