As soon as I saw ghilie
's Cupcake Doll pattern, I knew I wanted to make one. I love the look, and the pattern is super simple.
I made this doll for my sister for Christmas (I work slowly, so I have to start early
The only change I made to the pattern was to make the ears into more pointed, elf ears. If I did it over again, I would probably make the ears bigger, so the point is more noticeable.
The doll and her skirt and sock boots are all completely hand-sewn (I made her sock boots by cutting off the cuff of an old sock). For her hair, I used the knitted wig cap and yarn hair method.
I knitted her sweater and underwear, making up the designs on the fly.
I hand painted her eyes after gouging out the brown color the eyes were originally. There is still a little bit of the brown left in the eyes, but I like how they turned out.
My sister also loves the doll, so at least that's one Christmas present done!
