My index finger hurts because of the hand sewing, but happily my second doll is done after so many experimental trials and a lot of hours of intense labor. My inspiration came from Tilda Doll Studio Book. I draft all the patterns for this project, including the body. She is a little bigger than the first one. My doll is 34 inches tall and wears gloves this time. I used the remnants from my previous project Ivory and Gold for her dress and coat.

      Thank you Martin. I made them for home decor. Maybe sell them in some festival in the future.
