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.
