I'd say this doll is a successful experiment. The face is hand-painted with acrylic paints instead of fabric markers. I used wool felt instead of acrylic felt and I gave yarn hair a try. I'm in LOVE with all those changes!
|I also attempted to make a bubble skirt but it didn't work|
exactly as I expected so I'm treating it as a regular skirt.
My absolute favorite part of this doll is the hair, every strand of yarn, ribbon or string was hand-sewn one by one onto her scalp. It took me many hours to sew the colorful details as they were triple stitched in place. The bulky yarn went much faster and I just LOVE how full it makes her mane look. I can't wait to try this with better yarn; this is just some acrylic I had in my stash.
I also stitched some colorful bits on her bangs to pull it all together

The only thing I'll change next time is the size of the face, I'd make all her features a tad smaller. I loved her eyes and full shiny lips, though. What do you think?
