My nine year old daughter has been asking me to make her a tiny little doll for a long time now, and I finally got around to doing it the other day. I drew a basic pattern out of paper and then cut it out and embroidered a basic face. I put the pin in so you could see the size. It was a bit tricky for me to make something so small and to work out how to do it. With the limbs so thin it is impossible to turn them back the right way once they are sewed up, so I had to sew the top of the arms and head, and the outside of the legs on the machine, and then sew the other sides up by hand turning the seems in and over sewing. all very fiddly, trying to do it nicely.
And I made two of them so they would have a playmate and could swap clothes. (below) all sewed up and waiting for some hair. Poor photo due to me trying to take it on my husbands ipod and videoing it instead of still photo.
