Hi I thought I would show you my rag doll I made for my granddaughter.
a couple of weeks ago I completed a dressing gown/robe for Alana in a lovely soft fleece.
and on Saturday I decided I wanted to make Alana a rag doll for Christmas.
I purchased two pillows for £5 (for the two) and I used the pillowcase to make the body, and the used the stuffing inside to stuff the doll.
. I used my Janome software to create the face for the doll
and used wool for the hair which I cut into strands, folded in half and sewed each strand to the back of the head, one by one.
Next I made a copy of Alana's dressing gown for the doll out of the left-over fleece and a pair of PJ's in some blue cotton knit I had in my stash.
and here is the end result
There are lots more details on my blog - I have nearly completed the 2nd doll for my D Mike's granddaughter so best get her finished - will post that one up later.
