I hope your wig is going well!

I have my kit right next me though I promised myself I wouldn't start it until after the new year.   Undecided

Here it is, though:

I thought I'd post photos of the kit I bought, just in case anyone else was toying with the idea of ordering one.  Also, in the interest of being precise, I wanted to see what was included so I would know what I would need next time around:





The instructions that come with the kit seem pretty complete. Lots of illustrations and, at least after glancing through it, it seems like something I could do, even with my very, very limited sewing skills.  The clothes patterns also seem pretty simple though I'm reserving final judgment until after I try them out. Smiley

The knit fabric already has the pattern marked out for cutting and sewing. To be honest, if I were to find flaw with the kit, this would be the place.  I was expecting to get a doll pattern like the clothes patterns--pieces to cut out to be traced onto the fabric.  Because I'm intending to make more than one doll, I'm going to have to trace the pieces so I can use them as templates later. 

For anyone who may be interested in hobbling together their own materials--my kit (for a 12in doll) came with approximately 6oz of wool, 50g of a mohair blend yarn (approx 110 yards), two bobbins of thread (one that matches the knit fabric and the other matches the mohair yarn), a piece of tubing that's about two feet long, and a small paper bobbin with both white embroidery thread and a mix of colors--pink, blue and brown.

Hopefully, this will be helpful to anyone who is wanting to participate but doesn't want to necessarily purchase the kit.  I know that between my yarn and wool stash, purchasing materials for additional dolls should be fairly inexpensive.

I finally got my wool and started after the toddler got to bed.

KLKing, have you used natural material for your doll?

yay yay--I love the sweet look of these dolls and have always wanted to make one...I might need to order a kit as I tend to be like lapoli--try it for the first one then I know how to do it!

I am truly interested in the clothes the most...I love sewing doll clothes! Cheesy

I've been wanting to make a version of this for my oldest son for him to take care of when the new baby comes. He loves helping out whenever I watch newborns and other babies, but there are certain things he can't help out with (such as breastfeeding) and I want him to still be able to feel like he's helping out. the only problem is trying to figure out a new pattern and find materials in time, since my baby is due in February T_T"
