Rag Doll


Hi everyone. No card from me today but here is the Rag Doll I have been making.
It is a long time since I did one of these and must say I enjoyed the change.

The body is made from Calico and all the clothing is 100% cotton. Lace and ribbon trim from stash.
Worst bit to do is the hair, it took me ages!

Thanks for visiting.
hugs
Marion

I think your rag doll looks awesome, although I can only imagine how timeconsuming this must be. Yet it's so pretty that it worth the effort. Hugs, Marion

Oooh Marion - this is excellent! :) I used to love making my own dolls (I used to buy the pot faces) and made clothes from old clothes too. She has a great expression and her hair is so neat! :)

This must have taken ages, but so well worth it.
