Just a quick post as I continue on this doll making journey. This is a commissioned order for a friend, and I made the body out of a different kind of cotton. I couldn’t believe the difference it made. It is the same size pattern, but this doll is a good deal smaller and more dainty. The jersey is so stretchy that you can just keep stuffing!
I like this fabric better because it allows for better detail and definition.
I also experimented with the hair, giving it two shades of brown and braiding it in a fish tail style.
She is borrowing the red shoes from blondie because I am waiting for an order of blue wool felt to go with her blue dress, but I kind of like the red on her. What do you think?

Oh stop the cuteness!! I think I like the red shoes to contrast, and her hair is just amazing!
She’s gorgeous! I love her hair and I love the red shoes. There’s no place like home, there’s no place like home, there’s no place like home . . . 🙂 (If you want a suggestion, the only one I could make is to move her eyes down a tiny bit on her face, a bit closer to her nose. It would more mimic a child’s face with their high foreheads.) But really and truly, I love her! These are beautiful dolls–and I bet you didn’t hear any comments about “alien dolls” from your boys, did you? 🙂
