I made this little doll for the lovely, kittykill.

I found the pattern in an adorable Etsy shop called, Noia Land. The pattern was really well written and easy to follow. All of the other dolls in the shop are just precious. I want to make one of each!

She's made out of felt and embroidery floss. Her legs and arms both have pipe cleaners in them so that she can be posed. My only complaint is that her head is very floppy. In the future, I might try a wire through her neck and body.





Thanks for looking!

So so cute, lime!  Kittykill is LUCKY! 

I wonder if next time you could put in part of a popcicle stick perhaps to keep her head from being floppy?

That's a good idea, Jilly. It would have to be something pretty thin so you wouldn't see it. The pattern says to just use a whole mess of stitches but that really didn't work. She's top heavy Smiley.

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

Yes, they are. Most are done with a single strand of DMC.
