The First Doll (I made)!

Things have slowed down here a bit at the moment.
I've been trying to get the little one's temperature down (again).
So I thought I would share with you the first doll that I ever made.
This is a few months after I first got my sewing machine.

She was done from a rough, sketched out drawing
and the proportions/shape are not quite right(especially the head!)
 I think it took about a year and a half after this,
to design a pattern and paint a face that I was actually happy with.
(though the local art gallery were selling them during that time,which was great)

Once I had decided on my style of nose, it all fell into place!
And hopefully I'm a better hairdresser these days...

Oh she is so sweet Jennie!!!
She reminds me of a doll I had as a child that my Mum made... the shape of her head and her face...although mine was embroidered with wool hair I think.
