I Did It!

Well here he is! He's just missing something... oh yeah ... clothes! te-hee
I don't particularly enjoy making people clothes so I'm hoping doll clothes aren't too bad.

He was surprisingly easy to make, but a bit time consuming to get everything just right. He is far from perfect, but I'm pleased with the result.
A few notes for next time:
*Make the nose a little bigger than you want the finished result to be. When you pull the "skin" over it, the nose will flatten a bit.
*When doing the inner head form, be sure to tie the string as tight as possible. Again, once I pulled the fabric over I lost some of the definition.
*Ditto on the thumb. Make it more exaggerated than you think or it won't show up at all.
*Make sure you stuff stuff stuff as much as you can with the wool. It compresses and you want a full doll. (I am used to polyfil which is a completely different animal.)
