Long tall Sally

I've been making crochet dolls for a little while now, since finding Beth's amazing tutorials here.
They change a bit each time I make one, and I make notes about how to improve the next.
So for this next doll I wanted different hands and feet, longer arms and legs and a shorter torso to make her more like a rag doll.

I love making the little wig cap.

Here she is with wig attached.

The great thing about her is that her hair can be styled in different ways!

Oh, and I used buttons for eyes because firstly I have run out of safety eyes and secondly I was inspired by the wabbits I made previously. I think they're ok, but am not sure if she looks a bit freaky.. What say you?

All in all I'm vey pleased with how she's turned out. I just need to make her some clothes. Must engage brain and oik out the old sewing machine for that one.

Enjoy your weekend, all.

P.S. I have actually sold lots of things in my real life shop to real, actual real people! Am thrilled to bits!
P.P.S. am now a tweety-bird. Do follow me on Twitter, if you like that sort of thing (link somewhere in top left corner).
