When my oldest daughter was a little girl, I made her many dolls. She is all grown up and now it’s time to make cloth dolls for my two youngest girls! I enjoyed making this sweet and simple doll. I just drew up a simple design, and she is button jointed.
I would like to share, that her hair is needlefelted wool. The cloth is cotton and she is stuffed with polyfil. I wasn’t sure if the wool would felt in but it did nice and strong. This made making doll hair so simple! I just placed the wool roving where I wanted it and used my felting needle where I needed it held in place. Even her braided buns are held in by felting! Her hair was finished in no time!
