Introducing my first ever completed doll.
I am pretty happy with my first effort at doll making. Flaws and all. I will keep those a secret but I will say there are a few. She wouldn't have been made at all if I didn't have a bloggy friend talk me into a doll swap! I mentioned a wish to learn to make a doll and now I have.
I learnt so much making this doll, from staining the body to making hair. I used this pattern and tutorial from Lillie Mae's Crafts found here. I didn't follow her instructions on hair making but used this tutorial instead.
Lastly, her collar is something I whipped up from a pattern I drew. I was trying to make a sailor's collar. If I make a dress with sailors collar again I will be enlarging the pattern I made.
Oops! Just realized I didn't take a photo of the back view and she has gone off to live with her new family!
