So I made this doll a couple years ago, and I don't know why I never posted her. But here she is.
I made a miniature version of myself!
I've learned more about making dolls since then, so there are things that I would have done better (like her neck), but I'm still really happy with how she turned out.
Her face. The nose ring is an old earring.
And she had to be wearing flip flops. Until very recently, I absolutely hated wearing shoes.
The hair was the challenge, but if I remember right, it was the reason I wanted to try to make a me-doll. I have big (no, seriously big) curly hair, and I wanted to see if I could make a yarn version when I found yarn that looked like curly hair. It's blended with two colors of embroidery floss. I used the technique from the Jack Sparrow pattern. (I can't remember her user name right now, but her stuff is awesome! Amy's Babies??)
It's still my favorite part of the doll
The arms are jointed so they swing. And another shot of the big hair.
Her body, the pants, arms and flip-flopped feet are from the Super Happy Crochet Cute book.
I ended up giving her to my mom as a Christmas present, and she has recently made it onto display in my parents' house.
I'd love to know what you think!
