I remember my mother sewing me a cloth doll when I was about 10 years. She had corn hair of golden colour, and has an orange flowered dress.
This pattern is from an Australian country patchwork magazine; was published about decade or so ago. It includes blocks for all the projects, and instructions.
I, however omitted and changed some details, such as using paint to colour the boots, using felt markers, buttons, and using of a glue gun for attaching hair/hat. I did that because, I want to pass this on to a toddler and did not want to use any harmful items.
I hand sewed everything from body parts to dress and hair.. and making the tiny clothes were such a delight.
I would not mind trying few more projects from the magazine, which has another type of a doll.
I call her little 'May'
It is nice of you to stop by,
