Here's a doll I made with a pattern from Patternbee.  It's a reproduction pattern from dolls created at the turn of the century.  Everything is hand embroidered, then sewed and stuffed.  I'm not crazy about the black facial features because it looks so harsh compared to the muted tones used in the rest of the doll, so next time I would definitely choose a different color of floss for those.  It reminds me of something my great-grandma would have had as a child, and I'm a sucker for anything that looks vintage or antique.

That's absolutely precious- I wish I had that kind of embroidery skills.
