Heartily inspired by Daisy the Dollar Store Dolly (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=237733.0) I decided to give the same thing a try myself! Grin She is hand-sewn.

Here is Chaussette, saying "Bonjour!"  Cheesy "Chaussette" is the French word for sock!


She has no shoes because they were more difficult to make than I thought they would be. Embarrassed It's okay though, because her name is Chaussette, after all!

Her dress is made from a baby skirt I found at a dollar store. The sleeves are the top parts of socks, and her socks and panties (not pictured) are also made from socks.

She is made from socks too. Wink


I had no idea how to weft in doll hair. After a long time I decided I would give it a try.




Just right for a tea party or telling a secret to! Cheesy
