little miss storybook

(photo from the book Wee Wonderfuls)

I have plans to make this doll for a friend for Easter, so I decided to make a "practice" one first.
And am I soooo glad that I did. This is the first pattern that I have had trouble with from the Wee Wonderfuls book. One of the pattern pieces is missing, and part of the design is redundant, making it bulky and annoying to work with. Also, I think that the arms are too low.

Despite the frustration, she turned out pretty cute, don't you think?

I loved making the ribbon hair. The one I am making as a gift is for a 20 month old, so its a perfect first handmade doll for her!

I found the missing piece for the pattern, and I wrote notes on what to change, so making the next one should be easy and a lot more fun.
