A week of snow-induced cabin fever, and – behold! – I have made a doll. As you do. She is made from a pattern by Debbi Crane which appeared in Quilting Arts Gift Holiday Issue 2010-11.
I should say in my defense, that this is the first stuffed thingy I have ever sewn. She has a definite home-made air about her. There’s not enough stuffing in her arms and legs, so they are rather too floppy. And she has her shoes on back-to-front (even I have never managed that ;-)). But Waif likes her:
I called her Maud because it seemed like a pleasingly old-fashioned name and, even though she has a skull on her dress, she looks rather old fashioned, don’t you think?
