 So far...everything is going together really well....I'm going to add a little support of some sort in the neck area for the head since the head is a bit larger and a little heavy for the neck to hold up..especially after she has hair..but I'm thinking of doing felt for hair..not sure yet (that might be something you could add to your pattern..pattern for felt hair..like the apple dolls but added later? do you know what I mean?  anyhoo..the neck support would be the only thing I would recommend adding. (*some may like it that way though) Grin

i was thinking the same thing, like toothpicks with the sharp bits cut off.



Well, I haven't got the arms done yet, but here's what I have so far.  I think felt hair is a great idea, and I'm gonna dig up some earrings for her.  There is subtle shape in the legs - is it worth the trouble or should I make them just straight?  Is she too short waisted?

the head stuffing goes in through the top, then hand stitch closed. 

To attach the head you can slice a little slit in the back of the head and then stuff the neck stump in there, then sew it together.


Question, would it be easier to sew the head all around then slit the neck opening, turn, stuff, sew onto neck stump? Then you could make bald ones?? Cheesy

I did that on a head last night and it was awkward because you had to slit it so close to the chin that shaping the chin becomes a problem. however, it is possible.



I did the smaller one last night.  you can see the top of the head is rounder but the back of the head is a mess.  I ended up closing the hole i used for stuffing and just attaching it.  With glue.

They look way cute. Now I really have to try. With those long legs I'm seeing a ballerina.

okay doke...here's what I have so far....


I put her eyes a little closer together..I think for this type of doll..farther apart would be better..like your pattern.. One thing..now that she's stuffed...is maybe sewing a seam across the top of her legs so she can sit if she wants...another thing..not sure what to do with the feet.. thought of painting little maryjanes on her but not sure about the heel..what do you think?

I used a little Popsicle stick in the neck..seems to work well and I think the idea of sewing all around the head and making a neck hole after would work well....I liked cutting the hole in after and stuffing it in.

I'm wanting to try make her hair look like the anime type hair..
edit:finished the hair..what do ya think?

Love the hair, fits the eye spacing really well.

I think the one stuffed thru the top of the head looks better shape-wise, and was probably easier to stuff, not just attach as you said. Ok. I should be of work in a few hours, will have a go at it later tonite.
