Well I wanted to try out a doll pattern and after checking around here thought I could manage the black apple doll. So I put it all otgether yesterday with things I already had in my stash and my kids came home from school and told me that it looked like my Mother-in-law. So the doll got glasses and an outfit and now I don't know really know what to do with her! But my 9 year-old (although she isn't into dolls very much) is begging for one. So I guess I did something right!

Sorry she's sideways

That is very fun! I think she turned out well!

I made one for a friend a while back, and I added pigtails to the hair by sandwiching them in when I stitched up the sides, and I painted on a face using acrylic based paint and a fabric medium (it was a very simple face, but very cute!) I also shortened the arms/legs a little, since they seemed a bit on the gangly side.

That's one of the things I liked about this doll pattern. It's really easy to modify, and you can get creative with it and make it look like whatever you want.

Good luck making one for your daughter Smiley
