...Lilly the doll!
I can't believe how long it took me to make her, but she's finished!
I had to learn how to backstitch and satin stitch with embroidery floss to make her face :).
It was fun to add my own little touches like:
... a ruffle on the bottom and velcro to the back of the tunic instead of a button...
.. pockets and a button on the pants..
... a felt flower to her hair...
... and finally, a little heart to show Lilly's affection for her new best friend! I bought that fabric with little hearts all over it a long time ago not sure what I would use it for. I'm so glad I bought it now! It was the perfect finishing touch for a home-made doll for Lucy's first birthday. I can't wait to give it to her.
A big thank-you to hop skip jump for making such a charming little pattern.
