Yay I finally finished my first apple head doll

I learned so much that I'll make the next one in a much more efficient manner. For one, put the head on last after the body is stuffed and the clothes are on it! Glue hair on last!

I named her Maddy. I'm so happy I finally finished one. It was intimidating. I had to keep reminding myself that if I could sew people clothes I could figure out how to make doll clothes. And it helps to remember the skirt is a circle and the scarf and shawl are both triangles. The shirt is a t-tunic. The hands and legs are made from a tan sock. Now I have more confidence in the whole process.

Working on a new batch of apple head dolls.
