Hey Ma! Look What I crafted today!

Hi guys Smiley I had about 30 minuets before I had to go to work today, and I decided I should make a doll. The whole thing was done in about an hour, cause I did it on the way to work, while I was waiting to start, and then on the way home because it turned out I wasn't even working today. So, I made the pattern, PM me if you'd like a copy. The one I made is a little bit odd, because I used a fraying fabric and her stuffing seam split, so now instead of bending at her hips, she bends half way down her thighs. Also, does anybody know how to make the arms come out right... these ones are kinda half scrunched up in the armpit and it makes her arms join to her torso too low.

Anyway.. she's roughly the same size as a Barbie, only her legs are shorter and her torso is longer. (This wouldn't have happened had her legs not decided to fray themselves away whilst I was stuffing her.)

Her Name is Corlette by the way, she just told me so  Tongue


Here she is in her little farmer outfit, okay she beat up my Barbie and took it off of her but no one needs to know. She's making wine Smiley


Here she appears in a pretty blue gown, she is preforming a verse of Shakespear.  He is her favorite.


Here she is looking rather fashionable, she's walking down the catwalk!


Boys avert your eyes.
Here she is 100% Au Natural!

I like her. She has a vibrant personality. /when working on small dolls it sometimes helps to go over the outline of each piece with "Fray Check" sold on Notions aisle. It is clear, but will show if you get it onto the actual fabric arm etc. But it you just go around the edge, let it dry, then cut it out, the small parts will with stand more , and not fray away
Could you mk her arms separate, connect with a button, or large pony bead, so she had movement, and kept the same design.
She wears her clothes very well.
