Here is the 2nd baby doll that I made. This time I made a round face. I think I like the heart shaped face better. The material is civil war reproduction. It is scraps from a quilt I made.
Here is what my book shelf looks like with 2 dolls I made and a postcard from a friend in Australia.
First I just have to say that this is my 174th post, so it won’t be much longer until I have my 200th post give away. Hum what shall I give. Gotta think of some thing good.
I have been playing around with making different patterns for a baby doll. Here is what I have come up with so far. I have named her Hope. As in hoping for a better tomorrow for all our babies. She measures roughly 9 1/2 inches tall and the bottom measures about 6 inches wide. The print I used for this one is a cat print. The cats have wings.
Let me know what you think. I think that depending on what color the fabric is will determine the color of her hair. I left the yarn in a loop so that it wouldn’t unravel. Of course if it unravels it might look more like curly hair. Just some things to think about.
