I was never big into dolls growing up. If I'm remembering correctly my sister and I each had a Cabbage Patch doll for awhile, but mostly we were more into Legos and playing practical jokes on our little brother than playing with the dolls. Nonetheless, I decided it was time Audrey had a doll of her own, even if she ends up being just as much of a tomboy as her mom.
I made the doll using the Waldorf style and created my own pattern. I'm super happy with how she turned out. I'm still deciding if I want to make her cheeks a little rosy. Thoughts?
Also she obviously needs clothes, but when I sat down to make her something I got completely overwhelmed. It has been so long since I've sewn clothes I feel like I don't even know where to start. It's like riding a bike though, right? I just need to do it.
Clothes or not, Audrey seems to be quite smitten. She already has given her plenty of hugs and kisses.
|Please ignore the blurriness, it was the best I could do.|
Update: Here is part I, part II, and part III of the tutorial. Don't be scared by the three part tutorial, it is quite simple.
