All Dolled Up

Friday, December 14, 2012

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!
