So I made a Belle plush because I couldn't make Rumple without Belle, right? Right! This is my other Once Upon A Time plushie. Smiley



Since I dressed Rumple in his clothes from the episode "Skin Deep", I decided to dress Belle in her outfit from that episode, too; her Disney-esque blue & white dress, which I think is adorable.



Her hair is yarn, and each strand is sewn into her head. She was my first attempt at yarn hair, and I like that it can be styled in any way you want.  Oh! And this is what she's supposed to look like.



I made her a little rose out of felt because, well.. I really like making props for plushies, lol, It's an obsession. XD



Her face is needle felted, and I think the practice is paying off. It's a lot of fun to do, although I did break three needles while doing her face, lol. Oops!



Thanks so much for looking! Comments are always welcome! Wink

the eyes and mouth are incredible! And the dress in SOO spot on~
The hair? individually sewn? I bow down to your dolly goodness! How many strands did you wind up doing total? The hair is one part that makes me procrastinate in my dolly's.....I love her! She is gorgeous....

Whee!~ Thanks for all the lovely positive feedback, guys! I really appreciate it! <3

Thanks so much! I didn't count the strands (I think it would have driven me slightly insane, lol) but I used a full 50gram ball of yarn for her hair. I used the general principals of this tutorial which was really cool. I was afraid to try yarn hair because it seemed like such a huge ordeal, but it turned out to be quite fun! If you haven't tried this way, I'd definitely suggest giving it a go. Smiley

Not really hard, but it definitely gets easier on each doll I make, but then, I'm new to needle felting; I'm sure if you already know what you're doing it'd be a breeze! I use the smaller/thinner needles for their faces so the "holes" (technical term Wink) where you stab the fibres together aren't so big, but they tend to break a lot easier, which is a pain. Overall though, I like the end result so I think it's worth it. Smiley
