Brown Eyes

You can now see why I have been making so many “tiny” things.  It just seems that although I have been making tons of doll clothes, it has been ages since the last time I made an actual doll.  I wanted to make a truly brilliant one, so here she is.

Brown Eyes - Cloth Doll in Pink Outfit

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.

Close up of Cloth Doll Face

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.

Pretty Doll Accessories

For accessories, I made this cute little handkerchief in her purse.  It’s just a square of fabric with lace sewn to the edge.
Doll Socks and Shoes

I cut up a pair of old socks to make socks for her.

Doll Lacey Hair Accessory

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?

Here’s the updated list:
  • Hair elastics
  • Acorn pins
  • Tiny shoes
  • Tiny purses
  • Dress
  • Pencils
  • Cat toys
  • Tiny dresses
  • Cloth doll
  • Tiny accessories
  • Green dress
Ten down, just one more to go.  The last one should be up this Weekend i.e. Monday.
