I absolutely thrilled to have accomplished this doll- she came out much better than I had hoped for! I saw a doll online with a pattern but I really suck at following patterns to the letter (its much easier following diagrams for crochet patterns that come from other countries-takes the guess work out of the task), anywho... like I said I really can't follow a pattern so this doll is made up of part pattern, part winging it
Let me know what you think!
My daughter designed the eyes and I embroidered it onto felt with tear away stabilizer:
This is the doll in the making-head was held on by safety pins and I hadn't made her dress yet p.s.:don't mind the date on the photo-camera gaffe
I can't take the credit for this one - my 16 year old daughter did it. Unfortunately she isn't interested in making her own craftster account. So I want to play the proud mama and show it off for her! (By the way this is what I use for my avatar because she made it just for me!!)
Her preferred drawing tools are gel pens. This is just a photograph of her work. It looks better in person.
