Hi! This is the last doll I`ve made, but I have a problem!:


It has a very small face (2 cm/0,7 inches width) and it`s very difficult to find materials that can be cut so tiny for the eyes and lips! Do you have any idea of what can I use? Felt doesn`t work; it`s very small to make them with embroidery because there`s no space to hide the knot (at least I`m not able  Grin). I think that the best thing would be to paint it, but with it`s made with linen and you must be very careful painting it, I don`t want to spoil it!

I`m also wondering leaving this way, because I also like it!
I`ll appreciate any opinion, THANK YOU!!!

If you want to embroider, you could always have the thread go through her head, so the knots are hidden under the hair.  But it does sound like painting might be best.  I think it looks cool faceless, too, though.

i think it looks great as is but if you really wanted eyes, maybe you could glue tiny beads on?

I vote for no face. Plus, if it were me I'd be TERRIFIED I'd mess it up. It's so gorgeous as is!

Another vote for no face here.

When I first saw it, it seemed 'done' to me and I was surprised when I read what you wrote and you were thinking of putting a face on her.

She's great just like she is

as with the others, i vote no face - she's beautiful the way she is. plus,i think that if you made a face on her, you would miss the way she looks now! Cheesy
