I've been on a kick of making some flat dolls. They're flat (they're kind of like cookies... Cheesy) because otherwise it's too hard (for me anyway) to make them come out without too many puckers. I draw a silhouette and then stitch away, whatever comes to mind. The backs are just plain. Small ones are about four inches tall, bigger ones 7 to 8 inches.

How lovely, and what a great idea! I love all your squiggly embroidery - I think I like the black dolls best, because of the contrast, but they all look good.

These are so neat.  I like the way you change colors on your lines.  Very nice combinations and designs.

Thanks for your nice feedback! I've been having so much fun with them, I just keep churning them out! I think I have about a dozen or more. Cheesy
