This is from the same pattern as Elfwind, but the legs are not jointed. She is made from cotton. The patterns are from the book Creative Cloth Doll Couture by Patty Culea. I didn't realy use any of the clothes patterns on either doll except the bustie on this one.

You did a beautiful job on the face painting. The clothes are great too. You'll find that doll making is addictive. Come and look at the poppet along sometime. It's not just poppets anymore!
It's a great resource for beginning doll makers for techniques and supplies, as well as adoring support!

That dress is fantastic!
Is it difficult to sculpt doll faces?

No, it's pretty easy. The directions are in the book. You just need a long needle and I use carpet thread.

very nice doll; I haven't made a cloth doll in 8 or 10 years, but yours made me want to get out the goodies and gewgaws and get busy!

I love 1st time dollers who complete their pieces.  She's great and I love her outfit.  Thanks for helping me gear up to post my own pics.
