This Old Doll

May 1, 2006

This old doll is done! The before pictures were in an earlier post. I gave her a good bath; used a small amount of dishwasher liquid with bleach to remove the stains. I couldn’t find exactly the color fabric I wanted for the “cheek replacement” so I dyed some fabric which came very close. I added some more yarn to the hair, trimmed it up and braided it.
And last came the boots. The boots were tough to get just right; large enough to cover the old boots but small enough to lay smooth.
The new mother seemed very happy with her doll makeover.
