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.

I think that because of the doll's large head (and it gets even larger with hair) I am going to make her feet bigger, to make her less top heavy.  I like the long legs, but I will probably incorporate places to stitch at the knees and the top of the thighs to make her floppier and allow her to sit (thanks for the suggestion, sunflower!)  If I do that, tho, then the jointed arms seem out of place.  hmmm.  I could make a straight arm that bends at the elbow and is sewn into place. 



I don't really like the stiff arms of the smaller doll, how they stick out like that; it's hard to dress so I don't want to do that.  I may also move the waist down.

My main thing is that I want her to look good in clothes and I want clothing to be easy to make.  This means she must have a neck and shoulders and nice long legs and be large enough for the clothes sewing to be easier.

What do you think?

Honestly?  I really like her legs the way the are...long and thin.  I don't think having her arms stiff and her legs bendy would look odd at all..since she'll be dressed. But having her sit would be something I would really like. I found the half sized Popsicle stick worked really well and her head is nice and stiff..but not sure how she would be with yarn.  I also think having it bend at the elbow would be kinda neat too.

I really really like the doll. Smiley  

edit:   I really like the attachable arms.  I mean I like the feet the way they are.

Honestly?

thank you for your honesty!  I think I am so used to being criticized at school (and it being the good kind that makes my projects better) that I want it here too. 

I'm going to work on a bendy, jointed arm.

Hi ghille, just thought I would put my 2 cents worth in HA HA!! Anyway what about having the arms bent at the elbow a little. Otherwise I love her!! I made my own doll about 4 yrs. ago & I made her hands & feet bigger & I sewed across at the elbow. It worked. She's more raggedy I would say! Can't wait to see yours all done!
She's a kick in the pants!! LOL

Ok to start out My doll making is limited to poppets and crochet, But if you could make the elbow bend is there a way to seam the shoulder and get it to bend as well? I dont know I just was putting the idea out there. I will have to try to craft one this week and see what is going on. I think the new pattern is so cute.

So I always put a Popsicle stick in my poppets necks too it adds some nice support for the weight of the hair for sure.

Also how did you do the anime hair I love that look and I know my kiddo would too.

So many ideas so little time. Will I ever get them all done?
