The girl with the Titian hair

I have always had a fascination with red hair. I wished I had red hair as a child, and even contemplated dying it once or twice when I got older, but I never had the guts. And I could never understand why Anne of Green Gables hated her hair. She claimed it gave her a bad temper, and I guess if people called me “Carrots” all day……

Anywhooo, all that to say, I have been meaning to make a doll with red hair for a while now and I finally finished her!

Her hair is rather vivid, but I am not sure if it is red or auburn. What’s the difference anyways? And I am totally in love with the scalloped edge on this ribbon.

I contemplated a sprinkling of freckles on her cheeks, but was not sure how to accomplish it without her looking like Raggedy Ann.

So there she is. I had a lot of fun with the embroidery on her dress, and I can’t decide if I like red or blue shoes best. I think the blue will win out here.

Also I am working on changing a few things on my Etsy shop, but hopefully it won’t cause any problems if, you know, browsing turned to buying ; )

One thought on “The girl with the Titian hair

  1. I’d say she’s got auburn. There’s a lot of confusion between auburn and titian simply due to too simple of definitions. The easiest way to remember is, auburn: reddish-brown, titian: orangey-brown.
