Little Shan Shan, samfoo doll
This is the biggest doll I have made so far, almost 18 inches. I love making the shoes, crocheted with soft cotton yarn. The look was based on a description my friend gave -- her first doll that she bought with her own money when she was a kid.
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.
