I love the Aranzi Aronzo books and this doll is from the book "Fun Dolls".  She is the Unmotivated Kid and she was easy to make.  I scored 100 Marimekko remnants on Ebay and I have plenty of fabric to make a whole classroom of unmotivated kids.  I can't decide if I like her with hair or bald - I added the hair so she resembled a 4-year-old friend, but her eyes keep falling off so I need to remedy that before I can give her away as a gift.  Oh, and for stuffing, I used a combination of fiberfill and small plastic pellets so she'd be extra-floppy. 



She does have a heart, don't know if you can see it.



Thanks for looking!

She's cute.  I like the hair.  You might consider safety eyes if you're going to make more.  They stay on really well and they're safer.

I definitely like her with the hair. She's really cute.  Tongue What kinds of stores do you find safety eyes in because I can't find any for the life of me. I've tried walmart, Hancock Fabrics and hobby lobby. (I have to travel about a million miles to get to the latter two though.)
