And here it is, the head and body finished. I’ve stuffed the body first with normal fibre-fill, and towards the bottom with, in this case, some alphabet beads I had lying around. It needs something to weight it down as the head is bigger than the body, and when the hair is attached it’s even heavier!
I’m attaching the hair here. I’ve done the outline of the hair all round, and am now working from the bottom up to the top of her head. It looks abit sparse, but towards the top of the head I fill the hair in more so it’s ok in the end!
And she’s done! I’ve added a little black beret, which I think looks cute lol! I’ve squashed her hair in at the bottom so it kind of looks like it’s poking out. I also added a white rose shaped button.
I’m very happy with the way she turned out! It took me one afternoon to make her - I haven’t crocheted in 2 days so I was eager to get going! I plan on making more of these dolls; all with different hair and hats! I may even add some of the finished patterns to my shop, I’ll see how it goes.
If you have any suggestions on hats I can make and hair styles to go with them I would love to hear from you!
Thanks for reading!
