I have Finaly made a doll after lookign at all the beautifull ones here !
I decided to make a Dolly for my baby cousin, for Christmas ( Yes, its taken this long to get round to posting !!) and I didnt want to make a 'cute girlie' dolly, as its not my style, and I dont think its my Aunts either !

Anyway, I decided to make 'Molly the Dolly' (My Papa named her). She lives in a flowerpot and lives in the bottom of the garden! Where she looks after all the bugs and flowers, and has other general adventures with her friends.
I so,so,so enjoyed making Molly, and im going to try to do lots more !!

I made her dress from scratch, its patchwork, and took me ages !! Those squares are TINY!!! but it was worth it i think!
She also has a frilly blouse and bloomers Smiley oh ! and a little hat, that was WAY to small once she greww all that hair  Wink
My fave bit is her hair, which is made from yarn and a wooly jumper (sweater) that I un-threaded in places. It also has beads and pretty things in too !

Sorry about the picture quality, Molly is hiding from the bitter,bitter cold, and my camera likes to be quite rubbish sometimes !!
Ohk, I think ive talked for quite enough, Sorry !!! ( just verry excited!!))  Roll Eyes Ahem, so here is Molly The Dolly:


Say hello Molly ! Oh! There are some felt dreads in there too!


Taking refuge in the Faerie House!( can you see here stripey socks !!)


With the hat :S Checking out the toadstools!


The Haaaaair !!!!


And the Dress!!

I gave her to my cousin in  flower pot with a wooly cover on it --- forgot to take pics Angry  an a little book with photos tellin glucy ( my cousin ) what she likes to do etc (which got sucked in 5 mins... Cry

If you managed to read ALL of this post and survived, THANK-YOU!!  And If you looked at the pics, Thanks !!
Please give me you Comments and critism, as i know theres some faults and really want to know how i can improve!!!

The first thing that caught my eye was the hair -- love it! And especially reading that you unraveled a sweater to make it. Good work! Second, I am quite impressed at her little patchwork dress! I know I don't have the patience to stick with something like that, so I can really appreciate it! I like the cute story about her playing with bugs and flowers and whatnot. Yeah, babies chew on the things, so too bad for the book, but I think Molly (with her cute little smile) is going to get lots of love.
