Dolly for my daughter

Tweaked my pattern a bit and finally came up with something I'm happy with. I wanted to make my daughter a doll that looked like her, so I did dark blonde hair and blue eyes.

My first time doing TLS, obviously it's not perfect, but for my first time I'm very happy with it. She's my most perfect doll to date and I love her. Obviously my daughter loves her too.





While taking photos she pushed me out of the way and declared her hers.


Kisses!

Thanks! I'll be putting some up on Etsy at some point, well, I have two up there right now but I'm discounting them a bit since it's a pattern of body I changed up and won't be doing any more.

Thanks! I know, I love the hippos, I bought the fabric before I knew what I was going to do with it, but this way it's getting used

Thanks, oh, trust me, my first ones were not as good. I think this is something like my tenth doll or so. Finally consistent and stuffed to perfection and the neck is done perfectly, that was the hardest part for me!
