Oh, these are so lovely! My grandma and her friends used to make dolls like this for me when I was a little girl. My favorite was a boy and girl doll kneeling next to each other on a wooden plank.
I think it is so much cooler that you figured out a pattern for yourself. It makes them look very unique...I've never seen those types of dolls with pigtails, for instance! And the pigtail one is definitely my favorite. Bravo!
