The blonde/pink hair one was the first one I made. She was a gift for my 4 year old. Somehow I turned her arms upside down. I blame my natural ability to ignore instructions! I used this tutorial to make her hair.
I stitched her face, mostly making it up as I went. I drew a few samples on paper, then using pencil drew it on the fabric. I made her smile crooked on purpose (I like crooked smiles, my older daughter does not agree).
When December rolled around I felt the need to relax and do something just for fun. The pink hair doll named "Candy Cane" (named by my 4 year old) was created.
I was much more relaxed with her face and just stitched it straight on. I was hoping to make her look the same as the first doll, but when I was making her the blonde doll was missing.
Turns out they are a little different, but not too much. I used Kona Cotton Flesh colour for her, it really works well on dolls! I also read a little tip to use crayon to create rosy cheeks dolls. It also worked well. I coloured the cheeks, then used an eraser to smudge it.
I love that their clothing is sewn on. That way they are always dressed!
The little doll blanket they are posing on was made by my six year old. I had a pack of precut flannel squares. He pieced the top of the quilt and did the quilting. I did most of the binding, but he did do a few inches of it himself. He made it for his sister.
Thank you for letting me share with you!
