Six inch Sue

Sue, my first hand-sewn doll, just  about six inch tall.
This is the first (successful) doll I've ever made, following a YouTube tutorial. The doll skin was from a little vest that cost about $6. I couldn't find any suitable old t-shirt I could use and I was quite impatient to embark on the project.  The hair was dark brown, wool from Daiso. The stuffing was dug out from an old pillow. Everything was hand stitched as I don't own a sewing machine. The most exciting part was making the head of course. The most difficult part was joining the body to the head. The project took about two evenings.

I was really surfing the Internet for instructions on making an interesting paper doll which is not just one dimension. But I chanced upon a lot of materials for making Waldorf-inspired dolls instead. So exciting. I must give it a go. So here it is, my very first.

Meet Little Lippie

Here she is, with a dress that is so easy to make. Just thread an elastic band onto the top of a broad tube, sewn from a wee scrap of material. Sew in ribbons to make a halter neck. Lace at the hem is a present from Pauline.

Mich, full or mischief

Mich, a regular tomboy who skins her knees all the time. Hair made of acrylic wool, hooked onto crocheted cap. This time round, instead of a round cap, I crocheted a cap which forms a hairline.
