Waldorf Doll for an IRL trade

I have a friend named William, he is a painter. He saw the waldorf doll I made for my son and said he wanted one. So we traded services. He painted my son's train table and I made him a "William the Painter" waldorf doll.

I'm really proud of the doll. I used newborn baby clothing and tweaked it to fit the doll. My son helped me add holes to the pants by rubbing rocks and sandpaper on them. Then we added a little paint to his clothes to make him look authentic. It's a pretty good copy of the real William.
I love it so much, I almost don't want to give it away!



And here's the train table board Willaim painted. I got this Thomas train table on Craigslist for $20. The top was just a plain board. William painted it in a modern sort of way. He thought that when my DS was done playing with trains, the board could be hung up as a work of art on his wall. I love what he did.
