oh my! i forgot all about this type of doll.  I had sewn one when I was little.  on one side it was little red riding hood, and the other side was her grandma.  But then when you flipped her bonnet over her face it was the wolf in granny's clothes!  that was the coolest doll i ever had.

I love yours too!  every fairy tale should have one Smiley

I am astounded. This is the best, coolest, most awesome thing I have seen in awhile! Thank you so much for sharing, I really had no idea there was such a thing as topsy turvy.

awww - thanks everyone for the feedback Smiley

it's neat to hear that other people had dolls like this, too.  The cinderella doll I had was made of cloth and was tres 1970's.  I really wish I had a picture of her!  All of my sisters had her at one point (I have a lot of sisters!) and we all loved her.

If anyone has any questions on her construction - feel free to ask.  She'd be great at a storytime like a few of you suggested. 

And hopefully she won't scare my niece - sorry to hear merricat17 that yours freaked you out, but I could totally see that.  Especially with a wolf! 

Thanks again for your compliments and for checkin Cindy out!

Once I fix her tiara and make it pretty I'll post an updated pic.

Did you work from a pattern? Or have a doll pattern to start with?? 

I too had a topsy turvy doll as a kid - one of my aunt's - and recently bought a smaller version of the red riding hood one already mentioned at an antique store (can you believe it? An ANTIQUE store?)  But now I want to make one for every story I have....

No pattern, she was 100% improvised.  Though, she's mostly in sc so she's pretty much constructed just like amigurumi dolls. 

I almost stopped making her a few times in the early stage because she looked like something really perverse (really phallic!!)  but that's because it was flesh colored and I made her clothes after I designed the body/head/arm layout.

But, I'm glad that I stuck with it!

What I did is made two heads and a long, tubular body. I made the heads both the same size and made sure that they were pretty flat on top (so she can stand on her own - which she can).

Then I made 4 arms... attached those pieces together and then crocheted the clothes.

I love that so many people had these dolls/ remember them.  They really are pretty kick a** I loved mine!!
