I made a small doll for my sister Melanie. The body is based on the Mini Doll by Runo. The dress is just a rectangle that I added a little neckline to, plus a yarn bow, and closed with a French seam in back. The face is embroidered. Most of the body is handsewn, but I did assemble her little arms with my sewing machine.
Here's a closeup of her little embroidered face.
