Enjoy making the dolls for your Great-grand daughters, They will know who they come from. Yes, cloths makes it worth the while. One does not have to think about what they are going to wear. :-)
Love her .How do you do the hair??Glue it???I have never done a doll as we got no girls hugs
Carolyn I usually use yarn You can wrap Round a metal knitting needlesoak good with water the bake in oven 'till dry. The baking seems to set so it stays curly for years. I then hand sew down middle of head one piece sewn in middle is for both sides. Or you can go the easy way buy a doll wig oruse scraps of faux fur for short hairLillian
Hair is done in 2 parts, the fringe and the back. Both are wound round cardboard. For the back, wind around cardboard and secure with tape in the centre and cut both ends attach to tear-away on both top and bottom and stitch. For the fringe, same idea, with the cardboard, but cut only one end after securing wool. the uncut side then becomes the fringe which is stitched to a piece of material and then stitched to the head, The back of the hair is glued down. :-)
oh my this sounds very hard ****thanks girls for the info hugs
That's a terrific doll, Nicky, well done!
Thank you, She is such fun to make.
