Our dolls, made from little more than fabric and yarn, are full of personality. For shorter curls, embroider mohair yarn directly to head and brush slightly.

Doll Body Fabric
Fold head rectangle in half lengthwise; pin. Roll more batting into a 2-inch ball; place on star. Bring strips up and around ball; use a chopstick and your fingers to push batting inside head. Head should be firm; add more batting if necessary, smoothing with fingers.For hands and feet, place 1-inch ball of batting on each square; bundle, tying with thread. Use gathering stitch to tighten neck opening. With a doubled length of skin-colored thread, whipstitch head to body, folding under raw edge of body. Sew on yarn (for hair) in loops; to keep it in place, make an extra, tiny anchoring stitch at the end of every loop. For features, insert a needle threaded with embroidery floss through the back of the head and out at a pin. Stitch features; needle should exit at the back of the head.
