I just finished Molly and I think she looks okay. I guess you just don't expect a doll to look the way you want them to look. In the end they end up looking like something totally different then what you had imagined. I did not expect her to look nothing like this. For the most part I do love her body and her outfit. I'm not quite happy with her face...mainly her expression. She has a surprised look about her...like I had after I was done painting her face. I love her all the more!!

Another one of my girls that I've recently sewn. She's 18" and a primitive raggedy annie type of doll. Hand sewn and stitched from head to toe. Embroidered and painted face and feet which were sealed to last over time. Body is made from muslin as is most of my dolls are made from. Suzy has a head full of hand dyed prim red colored wool hair that's hand stitched into her head. No glue was used in the making of any of my dolls. She has been scented, signed and dated...like all of the rest of my girls. Pattern is from "Cottonwood Country Artist." She is tooo cute! One of my many favorites.

I tried to model Betty after Dorothy in "The Wizard of Oz". Although she's dressed in a red checked dress instead of blue, I think she came out pretty close in a prim kind of way...but I forgot one important item and that was her ruby shoes. Shame on me!!
