I made this little doll over the weekend and thought I'd share.

She's about 12 inches tall, the body is made from dark red felt, neck, arms and legs are posable (pipe cleaners). I put two wires in the legs, but they are still very unstable, because the dress turned out quite heavy.  Undecided

I kinda wish I had picked a lighter colour felt, but this started out as something else and then I changed my mind and made a doll out of the basic body. Maybe I'll make another one with white felt and black hair (the pink is embroidery floss).

In case you're wondering how I got the limbs so thin, I sewed them shut from the outside, using the hidden stitch. So no agonizing turning it inside out.

close up. yes the face looks horrid, but I just went for it without practice.  Grin

And without the hooded cape and a flower in her hair:

She's completely handsewn (also because I can't work my mom's machine).

She's really beautiful! I love her dainty limbs and face! Her clothes are especially great =]

She's lovely.  My first dolls were done by hand too.  A long, long time ago.  Just imagine what you will be able to do when you get your hands on a sewing machine. Shocked

My world is an unusual one.
