      Thank you so much. Although the doll is handmade, her clothes are baby clothes from a thrift store. I bought her shoes and socks at Wal-Mart.

      I am glad you like her. Next time I make a doll I am going to try and make the clothes myself. Thanks for the link : )

    I love it. Do you have a pattern or tutorial on how to make it?

      Thank You.

      I just made the doll with a basic rag doll pattern I downloaded off the net, bought some fleece, cut out the pieces and sewed her up. The hair was a little tricky to do, I wrapped a lot of yarn around my arm, cut a smaller piece of the yarn, and knotted it around the top, then after I stuffed the doll (I used cotton stuffing) I just stuck the yarn in her head and sewed it shut across the top, then I cut her hair.

      Unfortunately my sewing machine had difficulty sewing through such thick layers. I needed to use an industrial model, which I didn’t have. I’ve had this problem before, so I bought an inexpensive Singer off eBay for sewing dolls.

      The hair didn’t really attach right. Next time I’ll cut a slit down the back of the head, and attach some yarn in there too, so she’ll have a fuller head of hair in the back, and of course I’ll use my Singer so the stitches will be tight.
