I am continuing to experiment with cloth dolls.   For this one I used a different technique for the hair.  Instead of stitching each double strand from the crown to the hairline and back to the crown I reversed this and went from hairline to crown and back to hairline. Then swept the hair up into a ponytail.  I think it gives a fuller hairstyle and frames the face more softly.



I also experimented with making shoes.  I found that difficult but perhaps I shouldn't have used satin.



As in a previous doll, she has opposable thumbs and I used button joints to make the arms and legs moveable.

Thank you. I do find embroidering the features difficult but I am persevering with it.

Next time I will try your method of making hair.  I like the look of it.
