Cloth Doll


I've been wanting to make a cloth doll for a long time, but  hadn't found a reason.  My niece turned two this past week, and that was the perfect excuse. 

I love the look of the simple cloth bodies, and faces.  I wasn't sure how it would be accepted, but I'm happy to say that I think she liked it.


She has wool felt details, and cotton appendages and body.  I added some embroidered facial features, and a bit of lace to dress her up.

Initially I wasn't going to give her a mouth, but Clark insisted.  He even designed it for me.  I gave him a piece of paper, and he drew out a little smile with a line on one side.  He has a good eye, so I agreed.


I love her black mary janes, and blushed cheeks.  I really liked her sitting on the shelf of my sewing room, but now she's gone.  That means only one thing, I MUST make more.

P took it with her to her wellness checkup and my 24 weeker and all the ladies and nurses in both facilities were swooning over her "baby"... Huge Huge hit!

SO cute! You definitely need to make some more. I love that Clark drew the mouth -- my son doesn't have that talent ;)
