The 10 word review:

Everything you need to know about Waldorf doll making. Everything.

The longer review:
If you've ever wanted to learn about making soft dolls, then this is the book for you. Steffi Stern has created extensive patterns and instructions for a variety of dolls, from the simplest first doll all the way up to the big "baby" doll.

The foreward by Philipp Reubke and the first chapters explore "What is a Waldorf doll?", "Why Waldorf Dolls?" and "Doll Stories". Beginning the book with those topics is a great orientation for Waldorf doll making.

There is an extensive section on the materials you'll need for all the dolls, as well as a section on the skills you'll use for creating the dolls.  Steffi Stern is a master doll maker and her instructions are clear and precise. 

Making Soft Dolls has been gorgeously produced by Hawthorn Press. The illustrations that accompany the instructions are hand-drawn and colored by Lucy Guenot.
