I would never have thought to use printed fabric for hair...what a great idea!  They're totally adorable.   Smiley

I SO agree! This is genius!

i did a raggedy ann doll once. it was really fun. we should do a doll-along, no? I really like the hair alisonillustration used. my Raggedy ann had yarn hair, and it's quite flyaway.

Oh, it just occurred to me! My latest niece and my friends baby are just around the age to start enjoying dolls. Methinks i'll get started on them!

You know, the floral hair is absolutely wonderful, but the adorable expressions on their faces are absolutely what make them so cute (that, and the pigtails, too  Roll Eyes)

I need to think through "mistake-proof" doll faces...my great fear is that I would invest the energy in assembling the dolls and then, by sheer ineptitude, give them surly or dispeptic expressions  Tongue...

maybe I should practice making the faces FIRST, and THEN add the hair, body etc.

Yikes! Craft paralysis!  Shocked

i personally always put the face on last xD i lightly pencil the face on, and just embroider over the lines. i'm messed up a few times, but i usually just slog through it and have ended up pretty happy with the results regardless.
