I very carefully drew her pattern by hand. She is about 19 inches with a relatively thin body and thinner arms and legs. Her head of course is huge in comparison, I think it’s cuter that way. She is made with unbleached muslin fabric.
Her face is hand-embroidered and it’s one of my first attempts with embroidery too. Not bad for a beginner right? My mom loved the face, especially the pout. She thinks it looks kind of like my niece. The hair is obviously yarn and I can’t quite describe the technique I used for it. It is sort of like rooted hair, but I used an embroidery needle. Maybe I’ll show you later.
For accessories, I made this cute little handkerchief in her purse. It’s just a square of fabric with lace sewn to the edge.
And to finish the look, a simple, lace-y hair accessory with matching bows. Nothing left to do but give her a name, any ideas?
