The Doll has a Face
I was able to go to the Top Stitch yesterday afternoon for some help with Elijah's doll. Carri showed me the best way to close the top of the head and sew on velour fabric. I managed to sew the body while I was there (pictures to follow in later posts). All I can say is that I will NEVER sew on velour fabric again!!! Last night I used a 5 inch dollmaking needle and an embroidery needle to embroider a very simple sleepy baby face. It's far from perfect but I'm hoping Elijah will like it. He accidentally caught sight of the doll last night and said "Baby!Baby!Baby!" and wanted to hold it. I think that's a good sign.
