Really I Have Been Hard At Work
My last trade was a Christmas Doll trade. I made three six-inch dolls. An angel, an icicle doll, and a friendship doll. Each one has varying degrees of difficulty yet are fun to make and I had not made them in many years. I had forgot how much fun I had making dolls.
The friendship doll is a Jill Maas pattern. I have always adored her patterns, if you have a chance look them up. The doll is simple to make. I think the hardest part about it this time was the head. I want to make a few more for some friends who went crazy over her. I didn't use velvet I used cotton this time. I used white cord sewn down with gold colored thread around her face. She has a purple heart, beading above her head, cross stitch, gold cord, flower ribbon held down by little beads.I drew her face on also.
