Completed another little Christmas gift...this one is going to find a home with my adorable little niece. I haven't made very many dolls, and I was pleasantly surprised at how enjoyable it was to actually complete this one (admittedly, Anja does have a couple hairless homemade dolls floating around).
I used a hand drawn freezer stencil for her face.
For easy clothes changing, there is just a simple velcro tab closure at the back.
While I thought the hair would be super difficult, it was actually easier than I thought. I cut the yarn and then sewed the strands onto some tracing paper. Then, I simply removed the tracing paper and hand stitched the 'hair' to the doll's head.
Can't wait to see my niece open this on Christmas Eve!
