my first try at doll making..



i decided today that i had to make a doll.. so i found some fabric and hair and such and its coming together really well.. im hand sewing, not my best talent, but its working out and the yarn i am using for the hair has me giddy with delight. she is going to be a faerie doll for ngaio. the body is blue cotton velour and stuffed with wool batting.. her face is some stretchy cotton in a cream colour (an old shirt of mine). she will be simple but sweet.. im not usiang a pattern, just an idea in my head of how to do it, so she will probably be the first of many.. im already hooked.

im thinking of making her clothes from felted wool sweaters.. and wings as well! im so happy when im making things!

her hair is only stitched on in the center part so i have some major work to do there and her body is still needing some adjustments. im not sure if i want her to be able to sit or not. right now she is just sort of stuffed to see what her shape will be like. no arms or hands or feet yet and her head is just pinned on.
