my daughter has been asking for a while for me to make her this. i got the felt yesterday ,and worked on and finished the body last night. and i made her clothes today. they are all sewn on and aren't removable, i didn't want my daughter to lose her clothes. Smiley i just used back stitch and satin stitch for the eyes and face, and french knots for her freckles. and the doll and her clothes are all hand sewn. i tried free handing a dragonfly in her hair, but it looked really bad so i took it out and just put that flower button in her hair.




the back


close up of face.

thanks for looking. Smiley

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

What a lovely little doll!  I'm sure your daughter will never let her out of her sight...I wouldn't.
